Valley Shamrock Dusted; Great Weekend Ahead

A. Camden Walker @ 2:02 AM

Forecast: Harmless Morning Flakes

Dress warmly this morning but don't worry about slick snow-covered roads unless above 1500ft in elevation. Heavy bursts will be limited to the Blue Ridge, and points west. Precipitation will end by early morning along I-81 and 10am throughout the Metro Area--AS RAIN SHOWERS. Wary travelers, take note of March's strong sun even able to melt snow through the overcast morning sky.Models are not allowing me to be hyper-local in my forecasts this morning--but snow is of no concern

You may enjoy the few flakes falling during this morning's temperatures in the middle 30s, but quickly temperatures will rise to near 50 degrees while under increasing midday sunshine. ERIN GO BRAUGH!

Saturday & Sunday:
Saturday morning lows will be in upper 20s in and around the Beltway (25 in coldest outposts). Also look for substantial breezes building during this day of BRIGHT SUNSHINE. Highs will struggle to break the 50 degree mark--perhaps 53 south of the city.

Sunday morning will be another hard freeze--30 degrees downtown, but 22 for folks waking up in the Shenandoah Valley. Culpeper will surge to 55 in the afternoon, while those of us further north along the Potomac or Anacostia will still flounder in the upper 40s. At least we all benefit from gorgeous, clear skies and slackened winds! Enjoy.
