This weekend will feel like November, as cool temps may bring about some snow flurries

Today's Forecast

Saturday, a second cold front will move in bringing variably cloudy skies and a little rain/snow mix, especially across the Alleghenies, in the morning. The highest elevations are forecast to receive a little snow accumulation, with up to 1 inch on the grassy surfaces. In addition to the shower threat, the wind will pick up too, with gusts of around 20 to 30 mph. Due to more clouds and the wind, daytime high temperatures will hold in the 50s, with 30s and 40s over the mountains. Saturday night the skies will clear, making it quite chilly, with most areas reaching the freezing mark aside from DC and locations closer to the tidal Potomac and the Chesapeake Bay. Another front/disturbance moves in Sunday night igniting another round of showers, particularly across the Alleghenies and closer to the Mason-Dixon Line. This third system will help reinforce and carry over the chilly weekend airmass, into a new work week. Even with sunny to mostly sunny skies, afternoon highs will mainly stay in the 40s with overnight lows struggling to get out of the upper 20s to mid-30s across most areas. This cold snap will not stick around long, as, by mid-week, southerly winds will help get temperatures into the upper 50s and low to mid-60s.
