Wednesday will begin with increasing clouds as a storm over the Mid-Atlantic pushes northward. By this afternoon, light rain will overspread the region from southwest to northeast as temperatures will be near 40 degrees.
This rain will mix with and then change to light, wet snow for the evening commute and continue through the first half of tonight. Most places will only see around 1 inch of accumulation, but southern areas may pick up an inch or two more of slushy wet snow.
Either way, this type of snow will have a tough time accumulating due to the warmer air at lower levels. The storm will be finished by around midnight tonight with lows dropping into the 20s.
Expect a generally quiet end to the week before an Alberta Clipper sends a round of arctic air into the eastern U.S. for the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday will be blustery and cold with scattered flurries.
