Today's the day to get prepared ahead of Wednesday's snow. Today will be cooler than yesterday with highs in the low 40s. Clouds will increase through the day, as low pressure tracks in from the southwest.
Snow arrives after 4AM and will accumulate quickly. 4-6"+ is likely in the D.C. Metro with higher totals possible west of I-95. Snow will mix with sleet and freezing rain during the afternoon leading to a glaze of ice on top of the snow. As a warm front lifts north, drawing in above freezing temperatures, everyone will change over to plain rain by Wednesday night, as dense fog develops.
Showers will taper off early Thursday morning with milder highs int he low 50s expected. Another round of wet weather arrives this weekend, but it's looking like all rain at this point.
