WASHINGTON — Friday will be warm with highs in the 60s and only a few stray showers. Colder air returns Friday night and we're tracking a threat for snow Saturday mainly in the morning, a chance for some light mix/rain late Sunday and a wintry mix to rain Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

 

QUICK FORECAST:.
Friday: Mostly cloudy and warmer, shower possible High: 62.
Friday Night: Mostly cloudy and colder, mix or snow by dawn. Low: 36.
Saturday: Light snow/mix ending early afternoon. Trace - 1" south . High: 42.

FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Friday will be even warmer with highs into the 60s and just a few showers ahead of a cold front.  That cold front brings enough cold air for a threat for snow by Saturday morning.

As we look ahead towards the weekend, we have two quick-hitting weather systems. Saturday's will bring a threat for snow and a mix from daybreak to early afternoon.  Accumulations should be mostly on grassy surfaces with mostly wet roads and mainly south of Town. The system Sunday looks weak and mainly passes to our north with a threat for mainly showers or light rain late in the day and at night, with a few areas north getting a mix of snow and rain.
