DC-area forecast: Clear and cloudy with snow showers overnight

A somewhat subjective rating of the day's weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

8/10: I can go less in the way of wind, but a weekend with fresh snow is always a hit.

  • Today: Morning snowflakes possible. Clarity, dynamism. Maximum: Near 40.
  • Tonight: Mainly clear and cool. Younger Age: Teens to 20s.
  • Tomorrow: Mostly sunny and breezy. Highs: Mid 40s to near 50s.

The overnight fast-moving snow moves as fast as it moves eastward. A few snow showers may mark the area a few hours after sunrise. Although temperatures are cooler today, we're on the slopes when the increasing sun angle does a good job of gobbling up snow. In other words, don't plan on it lasting over areas that are on the ground. Relatively calm conditions are the rule for the coming days.

Today (Saturday): Gaps in the clouds increase behind the snow overnight. A few snow showers or storms are possible until 8 or 9 a.m. Otherwise, stories for the day include high winds — and lots of drifting. The maximum should rise within 40 degrees. North and northwest winds 10 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 or 35 mph. Confidence: Medium High

Tonight: Winds drop, and skies are mostly clear. Add to ice. It has subsided somewhat, but still covers most of the area and it will be a cold night. Ages range from early to early 20s. Confidence: Medium High

Tomorrow (Sunday): We continue with good sunshine throughout the day. Snowmelt is most rapid in the mid-40s to near 50s. Winds will again be slightly brisker, but this time from the southwest. A few gusts of 20 or 25 mph are possible. Confidence: Medium High

Tomorrow night: It should be clearer than that. Lows could be in the 20s with colder spots around the city. Confidence: Medium High

Perfect for President's Day Monday. Sunshine dominates and temperatures range from the 40s to near 50s tuesday, but it could be a few degrees warmer and a few clouds floating overhead. Confidence: Medium

On a scale of 0-10, a daily estimate of the likelihood of at least 1 inch of snow over the next week.

1/10: Next week will be quiet. A serious storm is possible on Friday, which will look a bit milder due to the snow, but is worth keeping an eye on.
