🚨 You need to know

The big talking point around town this week is the weather. Forecasts are calling for a rather stormy end to the week with cold weather on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

While it’s sunny and clear today, the Washington Post said Christmas travelers should prepare for an “Arctic onslaught” starting on Friday. The meteorological prediction for tomorrow is some wintery mix just north of Alexandria before changing to rain for the region. Rain showers are expected to hit early on Friday, with the temperature dipping into the 20s or lower around noon. By Saturday, those temperature readings are expected to fall to single digits, then climbing back out to 30s and 40s on Monday and Tuesday.

But will it snow on Christmas? The Washington Post says: maybe. A classic fluffy, snowy accumulation is unlikely and the likelihood any of it will hit Alexandria is slim, but there could be some snow to the north and west.
