Brian's exclusive forecast for Washington DC:
*The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for early Wednesday*
Tonight: Rain, sleet, and snow ending. Windy and cold with clearing late. Low 28-33.
Wednesday: Becoming mostly sunny. Breezy and very chilly with a high in the upper 40s.
Wednesday Night: Clear and cold with a low in the upper 20s to mid 30s.
Thursday: Mostly sunny with a high in the mid 50s.
The extended forecast calls for increasing clouds on Friday with a low in the mid to upper 30s and a high in the mid 50s. Mostly cloudy with rain showers on Saturday. The low will be in the mid 40s and the high will be in the lower 60s. Mostly sunny on Sunday with a low in the upper 30s to lower 40s and a high in the lower 60s. Increasing clouds on Monday with a low in the mid 40s and a high in the lower 60s.
After highs reached the mid to upper 60s earlier today, a mixture of rain, sleet, and snow is now falling around Baltimore and Washington during the late evening hours. Temperatures fell throughout the afternoon and current readings are in the mid to upper 30s with northwest winds gusting over 25 miles per hour at times. The precipitation will soon come to an end from west to east, and most areas will be cloudy after midnight. The sky will gradually clear toward morning as the cold front progresses eastward and the mercury will continue to fall into the upper 20s to lower 30s by sunrise. This has prompted a widespread freeze warning through 9 a.m. on Wednesday. High pressure will build over the region during the day. The result will be plenty of bright spring sunshine, but temperatures will be unseasonably cold with highs only in the upper 40s. With a clear sky and light winds, readings will fall back into the upper 20s to mid 30s by Thursday morning. Another frost or freeze advisory may be warranted during that time. Temperatures will begin to recover with highs reaching the 50s on Thursday and 60s on Friday.
