Cold weather for Washington, D.C., during the balance of this week will continue to lead to additional episodes of snow.

Wednesday through Saturday, temperatures will struggle or fail to reach 40 F. Temperatures may fail to reach 32 F on Friday, despite sunshine. A high close to 50 F is more common in Washington, D.C., this time of year.

Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

In the wake of the accumulating snow from Tuesday, another storm was delivering a coating an inch or two of snow on Wednesday. A bit of rain and wet snow can fall on Saturday.
