WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Spring is not too far away but before we get there winter is reminding us it's not over yet! The D.C. region is in store for an afternoon mix of rain and snow that could impact the evening commute on Friday.
Following a messy afternoon and evening, rain showers are expected across the area Saturday night. Once that wet weather moves out Sunday looks more like spring with warm temperatures near 70 degrees expected!
We will start to see more sunlight on Sunday too as Daylight Saving Time beings on March 10 at 2 a.m. when clocks are turned forward one hour to 3 a.m.
AM Commute | Weather system moving our direction from the west.
Between 12pm & 1pm | Rain and snow showers arrive beginning in areas west of the city. Regions north and west of D.C. can expect more snow showers than rain.
4pm | The rain / snow line will fall along the I-95 corridor. Areas east of I-95 will see mostly rain. Areas north and west can expect to see mostly snow.
8pm | The rain / snow showers move out of the region.
The weather system is not expected to leave behind much accumulating snow. Around a coating to a half inch of snow may be seen on grassy surfaces once the system moves out of the area.
