      The traditional luck of the Irish{}is in short supply today as mostly gray skies, cool temperatures and late day rain are in the offing.{} After an unexpectedly mild day on Saturday, when the high reached 61 at both Reagan National and Dulles, temperatures today will likely hover only in the lower 40s.{}

      With a frontal boundary stalled over the VA-NC border, chillier air moving in from the north and a moisture-laden warm front to the south, the potential for wintry precipitation will increase later tonight.{}We may be{}on the cusp of spring, but winter will re-assert itself tonight and early tomorrow as Winter Storm Warnings are up for areas to the north and west of the city from{}6 PM today until 6 pM on Monday.{} Especially at higher elevations, 3 to 7 inches of snow and sleet{}are possible.{} In the immediate Washington area, only a half{} inch to perhaps 3 inches{}of snow, mainly accumulating on grassy areas, is likely.{}{}A mix of {}snow and sleet should continue on Monday morning before all the precipitation changes to rain by afternoon.{} Lingering showers are possible on Tuesday before somewhat milder temperatures and sunnier skies arrive later in the day.

      Even though it will be more gray than green,{}enjoy your{}St. Patrick's Day!
