It's a mostly cloudy and chilly start to the weekend with the prospect of some light snow today and a bit more tomorrow.{ } Two separate systems, one over the Gulf and another over the Great Lakes, will affect the DC area but in both instances, only glancingly.{ } Snow showers today could provide a dusting and perhaps up to{ }a{ }half-inch{ }of snow while Sunday could see snow showers turn to a mix of rain and snow by afternoon.{ } Little to no accumulation is expected on Sunday.{ } Tellingly, there are no winter weather advisories or watches in effect for either day.{ }

Temperatures today could rise to the mid{ }30s with highs on Sunday near 40.{ } The weekend's snow, light as it may be, will be February''s first at Reagan National; to date, just a trace has fallen and DC has tallied just over 8 inches for the season, about 2 inches below normal.{ } And after{ }a bitterly cold January, this month is actually running a few degrees above normal, a welcome bit of cheer in this long winter of our discontent!{ } Enjoy the weekend.
