After a beautiful winter's day on Saturday when the high reached 46 at Reagan National, today{}is a bit cloudier{}but likely to{}be{}a few degrees warmer.{}{}A warm front moved through the area overnight, dropping some light rain and a few snowflakes - and there was some black ice earlier today -{}{}but this Playoff Sunday{}will be dry.{} A cold front tonight will switch winds{}from the south to the{}northwest,{}bringing in breezy and somewhat cooler conditions for Monday; highs tomorrow{}will likely stay in the lower 40s.{}{}Thereafter, a zonal flow across the U.S. will bring relatively mild temperatures through the rest of the week.{}{}With daytime highs projected in the low to mid 50s - and thus at least 10 degrees above normal during what is climatologically the coldest time of the year{}- {}it will seem that winter is on holiday!{}{}

This much milder than normal winter has also been relatively snow-free with just 0.2 inches tallied to date.{}It has in fact been nearly two years since any significant snow has fallen in DC.{} It was way back on{}January 26, 2011 when a 5-inch snowfall made for difficult travel.{} Enjoy your Sunday!{}
