PM Update: Midwinter-Like Chill Grips Area
Cold and breezy conditions Wednesday
*** Coming Tomorrow: CWG's Winter Outlook & Live Chat (at 1p.m.) ***
Midwinter-like chill has settled in, and it has brought conversational snow showers along -- the trace of snow recorded at National Airport is a record for the date. Highs generally reached the upper 30s to around 40, and temperatures will fall back through the 30s as we head toward evening. Wind gusts as high as 30-35 mph are creating afternoon wind chill values in the mid 20s.
Remaining snow showers will dwindle as the sun sets, but bundle up if headed out this evening because it will be very cold!
Tonight: Get ready for the coldest night of the season so far. As clouds depart and skies trend mostly clear, lows will range from the low 20s in the coldest suburbs to the upper 20s in D.C. Winds will slacken overnight, but they should continue to blow from the northwest up to 20 mph early before weakening to around 10 mph by morning.
Tomorrow: January-like conditions continue Wednesday. Look for a little less in the way of clouds during the day, which will not matter much when it comes to temperatures, as highs should only rise to around 40 in most locations. Winds will also be lighter than today, though still somewhat of a nuisance, as they occasionally gust over 15 mph from the northwest.
