Continued rain showers and isolated storms to close Friday

Though snow fans in the DC area have had one of the most disappointing winters on record there, with fewer than 5 inches of snow falling all season so far.

Sunday Night: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm.

Sunday, the high will be near 62 with mostly sunny skies and an east southeast wind of 3 to 8 miles per hour, the weather service said.

Here's the afternoon forecast from the National Weather Service.

Patriots sign Jeremy Hill
With Hill coming to New England, look for him to be a spare part who can rotate in and provide something in the passing game. Incredibly, Marvin Lewis appeared to throw Hill under the bus after he opted for season-ending ankle surgery.

If you anticipate travel this evening and overnight into Saturday morning, check on latest advisories and statements to best prepare for your particular journey. Showers and storms are more likely tonight as a weakening cold front pushes into the state. Then, on Sunday, temperatures will climb two or three degrees, still amid partly cloudy skies, then rise by five or six degrees on Monday abd by another two degrees or so Tuesday. Between 3 and 8 inches of snow are expected in the region between midnight Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday. Though some thunder is possible, the main severe weather threat from this will be west of Alabama. Partly cloudy, with a low around 52. Keep in mind, this rating is not meant to show the strength of storms, but rather, chance to see them. The rest of next week stays sunny, dry and mild with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s and lows in the 50s.

A marginal risk means isolated severe storms will be possible.

Tuesday night, the low will be around 34 with mostly cloudy skies, according to the weather service. The chance of precipitation is 90 percent.

With warmer weather expected this weekend, we might have to deal with spring thunderstorms as we head into Sunday night (3/18/18) and again Monday (3/19/18).
