going to be chilly. highs in the mid 40s. that's pretty normal for this time of year. here's the second weather headline. people asking me a lot about this on twitter tonight and facebook live. snow in the forecast. tomorrow night. and maybe some snow on monday. not a lot of accumulation. after that kind of chilly as we close out january and head into february. it's finally feeling like winter around here. in fact, so far this month our temperatures running on average in total about 6 1/2 degrees above normal. so what does that mean? it's been really warm. it hasn't felt like january. currently, though, it is cold outside. we're in the 20s and 30s. 28 in gaithersburg. 38 degrees in washington. tomorrow morning the district at 34. if we stay above freezing and you can see that is the forecast, this will be the 18th con sktive day that we've been above freezing in january. just another metric of how mild it's been relatively speaking. by lunchtime we're in the mid 40s. a little breezy.
3:00 p.m. we hit our high of 46. and then tomorrow evening maybe some flurries and maybe a few sprinkles starting to impact the area and around 41 degrees. let me time this out for you. this is the latest with future weather. let's talk about your impact tomorrow during the day. if you're traveling mainly dry, the roads looking good, heading to one of the local ski resorts, looking great. hasn't really been great for skiing or snowboarding in january overall. definitely a few layers if you want to get out there and run. i think if you're going to take the bicycle out i'd just stay indoors and head to the gym. a brunch outdoors, though, or warm jacket if you want to go to georgetown or if you're just walking to meet friends and family, dentally want to bundle up. here's the timing on sunday. i'm starting out during the evening hours. you can see at 6:00 p.m. we're still largely dry. clouds in place. notice here's mainly snow, background. as we move to the overnight hours, 10:00, 11:00 p.m., we start to see snow showers in the area. future weather wants to mac a little bit of rain. r
it's so cold up above the surface that anything that falls is not going to have time to melt to rain i don't think. we're mainly going to be tracking just snow across the area. notice some moderate snow potentially in frederick and leesburg tomorrow during the overnight hours. now, by 5:00 a.m. really the majority of the snow, the potential for snow already off to the east. maybe a few flurries around monday. but the main event looks to be sunday night into early monday. as we look ahead to monday here's what i know right now. it's on the cold side. we're only in the 30s throughout the day. any snow showers mainly during the early morning hours. most of us we're going to see under an inch. anybody seeing around an inch looks to be in loudoun, northern montgomery, going to be updating the forecast tomorrow morning. but still you know what a little bit of snow does around here. i would allow some extra time for that monday morning commute. tuesday around 50. after
