    DC: Late Week to Feel Like Spring

    Spring is almost here and the weather will acknowledge this for a few days at least around Washington, D.C.

    Temperatures will rebound well into the 50s on Thursday as spring officially arrives in the afternoon.

    The first full day of spring, Friday, will be seasonable with some sunshine and near 60 F.

    Some showers may move into the area on Saturday, but warmth will hold on this day.

    Even though the region will be officially done with winter, the weather may not abide by the change of seasons.

    Another system is being watched for possible snow during the middle of next week over the mid-Atlantic and central Appalachians in general. However, at this early stage, the track, the dividing line between rain and snow, and the magnitude of the storm are uncertain.

    Regardless of the storm potential, cold air will return next week.
