Discussion              

The precipitation field associated with a weakening storm system over the western Great Lakes and a newly developing secondary storm system over the Carolinas arrived in the DC metro region in the wee hours moving in from southwest-to-northeast. There can be an additional small buildup of ice this morning in some of the far northern and western suburbs…watch out for slick spots in those areas where temperatures hold near freezing for a bit longer. Increasingly strong easterly winds will develop as the low pressure system intensifies near the coast and this will pump in slightly milder maritime air. This influx of slightly milder air will lead to a southeast-to-northwest moving transition of any wintry mix that still falls to plain rain by later in the morning. The rain can get heavy later today and winds will be quite strong from an easterly direction. The rain winds down later this evening and tomorrow will see the return of sunshine and then the weekend will turn gradually colder and below-normal for this time of year.
