Forecast: Cold Pattern Persists

By Jason Samenow

* Winter Outlook | Weather Channel Firings *

Don't let either the calendar or today's sunshine fool you: mid-winter cold is upon us. Tomorrow and Monday, the bite of the cold air eases a little before reinforcements arrive Tuesday. Throughout this cold stretch, it will remain dry but for a few rain showers late Monday.

TODAY (SATURDAY)

Temperatures: Current area temperatures. Powered by Weather Bonk. Map by Google. Hover over and click icons for more info. Click and hold on map to pan. Refresh page to update. See map bigger on our Weather Wall.

Breezy and cold. Mostly sunny. Upper 30s. High pressure builds into the area giving us sunshine, but we'll still have a residual wind from northwest delivering a steady breeze and cold air. High temperatures should reach just shy of 40, but will feel at or below freezing most of the day.

Mostly clear overnight and quite cold with lows near 20 in the colder suburbs with mid-to-upper 20s downtown.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through Tuesday.

TOMORROW (SUNDAY)

Partly sunny. Mid 40s. While it will still be about 10 degrees colder than normal for late November, it will feel noticeably warmer than the past several days due to a relative lack of wind. After starting the day in the 20s, sunshine will help temperature rise at least mid-way through the 40s, and the wind chill will be a good 10-15 degrees warmer than yesterday most of the time.

Partly cloudy overnight with lows near freezing in the District and mid-to-upper 20s in the colder suburbs.

A LOOK AHEAD

Increasing clouds Monday with a 50% chance of rain showers in the afternoon and evening as another cold front blows through. Highs should reach the upper 40s with overnight lows 30-35 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium

Tuesday will likely be windy and cold, with highs in the low 40s.Confidence: Medium-High

Time to go freeze my fanny off at the Tech-Duke game, temps in mid 20's by end of the game.
