Wednesday starts mostly sunny with skies becoming partly sunny late and temps in the low to mid 40s. A weak disturbance brings more clouds Wednesday night and into Thursday. It also brings the chance of some snow showers in the mountains and places well northwest of town on Wednesday night and into Thursday morning. DC itself should stay dry.

The dry streak comes to an end Friday. The next big low pressure system arrives, bringing with it rounds of showers and periods of rain, along with locally heavy rain. Before the weekend ends, DC will break one of it's oldest weather records. Click Here to learn more about 2018 record wet year.
