PM Update: Mostly Clear and Quite Chilly

By Ian Livingston

One more day of sun Tuesday

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.

Plenty of sunshine today has done little to warm the area as temperatures remain quite cool this afternoon. Highs that have reached the low 50s are running about 5 to 8 degrees below average (now 59 at both National and Dulles), and a sometimes gusty wind from the north has added an extra chill to the air. Expect chilly and breezy conditions to last through the afternoon and into the evening.

Tonight: Along with clear skies, look for cold readings overnight. Lows should drop to the upper 20s in the typically cooler suburbs and into the mid 30s for D.C. The winds of today will slacken overnight, becoming light from the northwest.

Veterans Day: Tuesday will be fairly similar to today, but with noticeably less wind and perhaps a degree or two warmer in the afternoon. Look for highs to reach the low 50s just about everywhere while mostly clear skies give way to increasing cloudiness by evening. Winds will continue to be light from the northwest.

Accuweather forecasts snow for the McLean area on November 19. The only problem? Accuweather also forecasts a high of 49 for November 19.

Don't ask me how those two go together.

Elaboration on KBurchfiel(McleaNed?)'s earlier comment:

(Quoted from AccuWeather, Inc.)

"Sterling, VA
Wednesday, Nov 19
High 48 Intermittent snow
Wednesday Night, Nov 19
Low 22 Mostly cloudy and cold with a couple of showers, ending before temperatures fall below freezing"

Doesn't that just make you appreciate CWG all the more?

On the 19th actually, the whole mid/eastern portions of the country will be getting a wicked shot of arctic air, which looks like it will be staying around for a prolonged period of time. It is becoming a very exciting situation.
