Warmer, windy and a chance for flurries… Temperatures will start near freezing again this morning. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds today with highs warming into the mid 50s. Winds will crank up again today with gusts to near 35 mph possible this afternoon.

A quick moving cold front will swing through the Mid-Atlantic this evening. There will not be a lot of moisture with this front but it may be just enough to trigger a few isolated rain showers and a very slim chance for snow flurries to mix in as temperatures fall tonight. No snow accumulation is expected. Behind the front, another shot of cold air. Highs will only reach the upper 30s on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine. We will steadily warm back into the 50s by Friday. Our next chance for rain will be Friday night into Saturday morning.

Today: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy, Windy. Highs in the low to mid 50s. Winds: SW 15-25+

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers(20%), Stray Flurries, Windy. Lows near 30. Winds: W 15-25

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny, Windy. Highs in the upper 30s. Winds: W 10-20
