High’s in the mid 50’s the next few days will feel much more comfortable after the cold stretch we’ve had. At night, temperatures should dip to around freezing.
The next storm system approaches on Wednesday. It looks to start as rain and end as snow, but marginal surface temperatures mean that accumulations should be pretty light. As a result, there may be about an inch falling between Wednesday and Thursday, with more to the north and west of the Washington area. There is still a degree of uncertainty, so snow is no guarantee. The pattern is currently not very favorable for big snow around here, but the pattern should get slightly better in late January into February when we traditionally get the most snow.
