PM Update: Cold Breezes Continue to Chill Region

By Ian Livingston

Temperature rebound begins Thursday

Radar: Latest D.C. area radar loop shows movement of precipitation over past two hours. Powered by HAMweather. Refresh page to update. Click here to see radar bigger. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Windy and cold conditions remain entrenched today as highs climb to right around 50 across the area. Skies that have been partly cloudy for most of the day may produce an isolated sprinkle before more clearing begins this evening. Look for winds to continue into the night, though in a diminished fashion compared to recently. Another cold one is on tap, so bundle up if headed out.

Tonight: After a few clouds this evening, we will trend mostly clear overnight. Some of the coldest temperatures of the season are expected, with readings around 30 degrees in the suburbs and into the mid 30s for D.C. Winds continue to blow around 10 mph out of the northwest.

Tomorrow: Thursday will be sunny, though continued cool and breezy. Look for temperatures to rise a bit higher than we have seen this work week -- up to the mid 50s in most spots. Winds that slacken a bit overnight tonight will gust again tomorrow, but only to around 25 mph at times.

Any guess on when the first flakes will fall in DC? Cap. WX guys, maybe its time for the ol' online poll...?

My first flakes fell last night, but only flurries.

The real deal is still a few weeks away.

First snow flakes have fallen here in Arnold. Small and very light flurries, the ice variety of snow flurries. Seems to be some more possibly moving through central MD now. We'll have to wait and see.
