The Washington, D.C., area will experience springlike warmth through midweek which will help fuel potentially dangerous thunderstorms on Wednesday.
The daytime highs will be near 70 degrees both Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of a winter storm that will pass through the region.
The late-April-like warmth will help fuel thunderstorms, some of which will be capable of bringing damaging winds across the area on Wednesday.
The thunderstorms will form along the leading edge of a winter storm that will pass through the region later Wednesday.
Sharply colder air will follow Wednesday night, and enough cold air can sweep in to change any lingering rain over to a bit of snow briefly.
Little to no snow accumulation is anticipated, but AccuWeather.com meteorologists are concerned with the possibility of slick spots developing on roadways late Wednesday night, creating locally slippery travel.
Thursday will be cold with a high only in the mid-30s. The AccuWeather RealFeel® temperature will be in the mid-20s under the influence of winds gusting to near 30 mph.
Temperatures will rebound on Friday with a high in the low 60s.
