Breezy, Cold After Snow Show

Mostly sunny tomorrow

Some leftover spin in the atmosphere in the wake of the snowstorm departing to the northeast from the Canadian Maritimes brought some vigorous, if brief, snow flurries to the Washington metro area around noon today. (We'll try to have more on the spin factor in a future News&Notes; for a preview, check out the infrared satellite loop at Unisys.)

Temperatures at mid afternoon have been in the mid to upper 30s, with a wind from the west gusting as high as 25 mph.

Tonight: Winds will be gusty through this evening but diminish later on tonight. Commute-time temperatures in the low 30s will drop to lows in the upper 20s downtown to the low and mid 20s in the 'burbosphere under partly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow: Highs will be 40-45 under mostly sunny skies.

See Matt's post for the rest of the forecast, including a look ahead to the weekend, and the Snow Lover's Crystal Ball for the latest thinking on Thursday's snow potential, or lack thereof.
