PM Update: A Preview of Cold Times to Come
Blustery wind-chilled day upcoming Tuesday
We have seen an early taste of winter today as most locations recorded highs before sunrise and have seen temperatures falling or steady since. A band of light rain (mixed with a sleet pellet or two) has been pushing through this afternoon, and most of this activity will move east of the area prior to the evening commute, though some sprinkles may remain. Temperatures now in the mid to upper 40s will fall slowly this evening as an occasionally gusty northwest wind continues.
Tonight: Clouds will stick around, accompanied by cold temperatures and a northwest breeze. Some additional rain showers are possible overnight, especially east of the area, as a low-pressure system winds up off the coast. Readings should fall as low as the mid 30s in the suburbs to right around 40 in D.C. Winds will blow around 10 mph throughout the night.
Tomorrow: Tuesday will be another cold one. Mostly cloudy skies will again cover the area and winds will increase as the storm system really gets going to our northeast. Look for highs only reaching the low 50s in many places, with some towns possibly getting stuck in the upper 40s. These temperatures will combine with winds gusting as high as 35 mph to create wind chills in the low 40s through much of the day.
