Light snow overnight

Cold Wednesday and then arctic air over the weekend.

WASHINGTON — Light snow will develop overnight. Cold Wednesday as skies return partly cloudy.

Quick Forecast:
Overnight: Cloudy and cold with light snow, more south. Low: 32.
Wednesday: Morning flurries possible south then partly cloudy and cold. High: 42.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy and cold, light rain possible south. High: 41.

Weather Story:

An interesting weather setup is underway overnight.  We have a chance to see light rain develop late and change to light snow overnight.  The critical time is between midnight and 6 a.m. Up to a coating to snow is possible. So by the time most people get up and are on the roads in the morning, there may be a coating of snow, but it will no longer be snowing and the roads will just be wet.
