Spring slumps as cold front, rain crosses DC area.

Spring slumps as cold front, rain crosses DC area.

A snow-rain mix is possible this Saturday as a cold front moves in the D.C. area. The rest of the day will be gloomy and rainy, but sunshine returns on Sunday.

WASHINGTON — April showers Saturday could bring in snowflakes, as a cold front crosses the area.

The National Weather service said that the highest chance of rain will be in Central Virginia to southern Maryland.

As temperatures drop Saturday into the upper 30s to low 40s, Storm Team4’s Somara Theodore said that the rain-snow that could fall will only be a “nuisance event.” There will be little to no accumulation in the region, but areas south of D.C. could see snow on grassy surfaces, Theodore said.

“Saturday almost all clouds all day long, pockets of light rain and possibly a few wet snowflakes mixed in, better chances of seeing a slight accumulation of snow, an inch or less down toward Fredericksburg on the south side of the area, as opposed to north of the city,” Storm Team4’s Chuck Bell said.

The biggest “threat” of the weekend will be the odds of a hard freeze Sunday morning. Cherry Blossoms do not fair well below freezing and most areas will be in the upper 20s to around 30 Sunday morning, according to Bell.

The rest of Saturday will be cloudy and gloomy, but the sun returns Sunday with highs in the upper 40s.
