Original story: 

Technically, Spring begins March 20. But temperatures will be “Springlike,” touching 70 by early afternoon. Then Northern Virginia revisits winter.

Wednesday afternoon will see rain and win with gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

Then the temperatures will fall fast. The National Weather Service says it will be in the low 20s overnight, with a slight chance of snow showers after midnight.

Get your winter coat out again Thursday: the highs will be in the low 30s.

Temperatures return to the 50s and 60s for Friday and the weekend.
