Spring officially begins on Friday, March 20. And while crocuses are popping up all over Reston, they may be covered with a bit of snow tomorrow.

Rain is expected to begin falling overnight, but with temperatures dipping below freezing, that may change to snow around daybreak Friday, forecasters say.

The Capital Weather Gang says areas south of D.C., including Fairfax County, will get a coating to an inch. Northern areas could see up to 3 inches.

By Saturday — the first full day of spring — spring will reappear. Temperatures should be 55-60, or enough to melt the traces of winter’s last gasp.
