This Week's Weather: Warm Temperatures Midweek in Northern Virginia

After Winter Weather Advisory Monday morning, look for springlike temperatures in the 60s midweek, followed by highs in the 30s.

Mother Nature will deliver something of a weather smorgasbord to Northern Virginia this week.

The week starts off with a winter weather advisory Monday morning, with a 50 percent chance for freezing rain and sleet during the morning commute Monday. The advisory is in effect between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday, according to the National Weather Service. The worst of it should hit the area by 8 a.m., according to the Capital Weather Gang.

Expect a high near 40 degrees Monday. Temperatures Monday night will not go below freezing, only dipping down to 37 degrees.

Tuesday, springlike weather comes to Northern Virginia, with partly sunny skies and a high of 56 degrees.

Wednesday will see even warmer temperatures, climbing to a high of 65 degrees with an 80 percent chance of rain during the day. Temperatures Wednesday night will dip to 40 degrees.

More seasonable weather returns Thursday, when temperatures drop to a high of 45 degrees for the day, with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures plunge to 23 degrees Thursday night.

On Friday, Northern Virginia has a 30 percent chance of seeing snow showers and highs near 34 degrees. Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high of 35 degrees.

James, as we say here, if you don't like the weather, wait a bit. It will change. Other than unpredictable weather this area is great.

As a native South Carolinan, I like the Va weather. I would say this season gets four seasons. In South Carolina we get three. cool, hot and thermal nuclear. :P

Ha. I love Virginia weather. I'm from Michigan though. Once I got used to the heat I fell in love with it. The cold we've had the last couple weeks is enough for me. I'm ready for spring. :) Wednesday will be awesome.

This area suits me just fine too. I've lived in Minnesota, Northern New Jersey, Florida, Germany and Japan... I can't think of any other place that beats this area for mild climate plus a full change of seasons (I really missed the autumn colors when I lived in Florida!). Throw in that we have no major earthquake, typhoon, mudslide, tornado (at least here in somehow protected Manassas) or volcanic activity - it's downright the perfect place for me.

From Florida and/or warm-weather places all my life, so I'm still not used to even the relatively mild Virginia winters. If you see someone in a parka, hat, gloves, with their face half covered walking down Clarendon Blvd. taking pictures, there's a good chance that's your local patch editor!
