There may be precipitation on Sunday, but probably not the stuff of holiday cards.
If you've been dreaming of a white Christmas this year, it's our sad duty to report that the odds don't look good for Prince George's County. As of Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service was predicting a 20 percent chance of Christmas Day precip in the Riverdale Park-University Park area — but in the form of raindrops rather than snowflakes. The forecast calls for a slight chance of showers after 10 a.m. Sunday with a daytime high near 48° F. Temperatures are expected to hover just above freezing both Saturday and Sunday nights. The silver lining? Daytime temps are expected to remain mild next week, with a high of 50° F possible on Thursday.
