This Week's Weather: Chance for Wintry Mix Monday, Clearing Midweek
Forecast Monday calls for snow before noon, then rain, snow, and sleet likely.
Expect a rocky start to the week with a possible wintry mix of snow, sleet or rain Monday that could make for longer commutes.
Here's what the National Weather Service says to expect:
Monday: Snow before noon, then rain, snow, and sleet likely. High near 40. East wind around 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow and sleet accumulation of around an inch possible.
The Capital Weather Gang says: "An early-to-mid morning wintry mix (60 percent chance) threatens that dusting in the city to a couple inches far north and west, and a generally lousy Monday morning commute."
Tuesday: Showers likely before noon. Mostly sunny, with a high near 53. Breezy, with a northwest wind 9 to 14 mph increasing to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.
Wednesday, the first day of spring, at 7:02 a.m., expect partly sunny skies with highs in the mid 40s. That same weather should continue through Friday.
