Expect the clouds to linger through Thursday with overnight lows around freezing. Monday (Dec. 4) will see some isolated showers through the evening before a cold front moves through Tuesday. An associated cold front will pass through the state Tuesday allowing Arctic air to infiltrate central IN mid-to-late week. Rain amounts of around one-half inch are likely before it tapers off tomorrow night. Only a few days after Spring-like temperatures, we'll get our first real taste of winter with a wintry mix of snow and rain over the weekend.

Its showers could come in the form of rain or snow, or both, depending on the timing of the system and how entrenched the cold air is over central Virginia.

LONG-RANGE RAIN CHANCE HIGHLIGHTS: Wednesday to Friday will feature at least a 50-60% chance for more needed rain.

American (GFS) model shows a little light snow cover the D.C. area Friday night.

"It's nothing brutally cold or especially unusual for this time of year", said Andrew Snyder, a meteorologist based at the National Weather Service office in Sterling, Va.

The inflow of arctic air is expected to bring plenty of sunny spells, but the temperature will be far lower than the milder weather the United Kingdom is now experiencing. Elsewhere lows in the middle to upper 30s will be felt as far south as the coastline.


They're predicting another chance for snow and sleet next weekend as low temperatures reach the teens, and another chance to see snow during the last week of the month.

Between these two options, it's likely someone in Alabama gets a few snowflakes Friday.

Saturday: Chance of light snow.

The reason for the arriving cold - a major upper-air pattern change. Often, in the extended, it's very hard for the computer models to piece everything together correctly so we encourage folks to keep checking the forecast over the course of this week. Sunday is looking to be similar to Saturday with a high near 55.
