Forecasters warn residents not to be fooled by the warm weather in Georgetown this week. Temperatures will climb to around 60 degrees by Friday but will quickly drop, making snow a possibility for the weekend. 

The area could experience a smorgasbord of weather this week: From balmy temps and rain later this week, and then possibly a wintry mix starting Sunday, forecasters say.

The Capital Weather Gang forecasts possible snow, ice and/or rain Sunday into Monday:

"The season’s first shot for accumulating frozen precipitation is appearing in long-range model simulations. As arctic air seeps into the region this coming weekend, a wave of low pressure will approach from the southwest. This combination means we have a chance of snow, ice, and/or rain next Sunday into Monday."

Here's what other forecasters are saying:

The Weather Channel forecasts a 30 percent chance of a "wintry mix" Sunday, a 30 percent chance of a "freezing drizzle" Monday and a 60 percent of "snow showers" Tuesday.

The National Weather Service predicts a 30 percent (increasing to 50 percent for Sunday night) chance of rain and snow Sunday, changing to a 40 percent chance for rain on Monday.
