The radars are also loaded with precipitation that is moving northeastward. The back edge is moving out of Virginia and Maryland. We should begin to see this start to wind down during the early morning hours and it all should be done by daybreak.

The maps below are the National Weather Service forecast snow maps with the most likely snowfall prediction. They have been adjusted somewhat higher in some places but check the time stamp. These maps were updated as of 7pm. They will update automatically so check back later to see new forecasts.

Weather conditions will improve later tonight as all of this moisture moves away to the east. We should see clouds giving way to some breaks of sun on Wednesday before a cold front arrives on Thursday with a few rain or snow showers. After that front passes it will turn much colder for Friday and the weekend with temperatures not out of the 30s for highs and nights down in the upper teens to low 20s into Sunday.
