Cold again Sunday with a few flakes possible

Increasing clouds tomorrow with a few flurries possible in the afternoon and evening

WASHINGTON — Cold weather is sticking around with a few snow flakes in the forecast.

Quick Forecast:
Tonight: Partly cloudy and cold. Low: 23.
Sunday: Increasing clouds. Scattered PM flurries. Snow in the mountains. Highs: 39.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 26.

Forecast Discussion:

Under partly cloudy skies temperatures will drop back into the teens and low 20s tonight. After some sunshine Sunday morning clouds will increase throughout the day with high temperatures staying in the 30s.

A fast moving low pressure system will brush by the area. The mountains and Western Maryland have the best chance of seeing accumulating snow. Otherwise we're just talking about a few flurries around throughout the afternoon and evening, mostly north and west of metro DC.

Skies will clear for Monday with partly cloudy skies and cold temperatures once again with morning temperatures in the teens and 20s and and high temperatures in the upper 30s.
