      Low clouds, fog, drizzle and now more rain.{ } Northeast winds keep our temperatures between 40° and 42°.{ } More rain coming as another wave along a front to our south moves near us and then moves off by Wednesday afternoon.{ } Another 0.5"-1" rain is likely with the 1" more likely across southern Maryland and southern suburbs in Virginia.{ } There is a risk of some high spots (about 700 feet and higher) getting some sleet or even a bit of freezing rain but they will be isolated and the winter weather advisory map looks more ominous than what will really happen.{ }

      Indeed Ryan Miller generated this map that shows the actual areas in the counties that are above 700 feet.{ }{ }

      Be careful in the AM.{ } Finally some sun back late in the week and Monday, Inaguration Day, still looks quite cold with highs in the 30s.
