      Much to the disappointment of snow lovers, the weak storm that was expected yesterday stayed just far enough south and east of D.C. that we got a whole lot of nothing.{} Who actually got the snow?{} Here's a look at just how close it came to the area.{}{}{}

      Snow Cover Jan. 18th

      {}Moving forward, we have pleasant weather through the weekend before an arctic blast arrives for early next week.{} High pressure is building in today, bringing in cold air from the northwest.{} It is a bit breezy, but winds should diminish this afternoon.{} The cold air is coming at us from the Great Lakes and there are even a few lake effect snow showers popping up early this morning, but that should go away this afternoon, too.{} A brief warm up for the weekend with highs in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees, but arctic air starts moving in on Monday with bitter cold Tuesday and Wednesday.{} There may even be a few flurries on Monday for inaugeration day/MLK Day.{} Enjoy the sun.{}
