    Cold weather will dominate the Washington, D.C., area through Friday.

    Temperatures are projected to average 10 to 20 degrees below the normal high of 50 F for late February.

    While a record low is not expected at Reagan National Airport Friday morning, many areas from the Midwest to the mid-Atlantic may not be so lucky.

    The city and much of the Northeast are forecast to be in for wintry precipitation beginning later this weekend.

    The heaviest snow, ice and rain are likely Sunday night into Monday evening. Another push of cold air will follow.

    Until then, any episodes of snow will generally be light and more of a nuisance.

    The details on the storm, timing and which forms of precipitation are likely to dominate will follow in the days ahead.
