Temperatures running 10 to 15 degrees below average continue to grip the D.C. area, despite plenty of sunshine today. Winds have tended to calm a bit compared to yesterday, though they still created wind chill readings in the mid and upper 20s this afternoon. High clouds now moving into the area will lower and thicken a bit this evening, but no precipitation is expected.

Tonight: It is going to be quite cold again overnight as lows range from the mid 20s to around 30 across the area. Clouds that should be prevalent most of the night will help keep readings a bit warmer than last night, and winds will die off to around 5 mph.

Tomorrow: After a mostly cloudy start, Thursday will feature mixed sun and clouds. Highs should top out in the mid-to-upper 40s prior to another cold front arriving on the heels of an upper-level disturbance passing by. Behind the front, winds will once again whip up from the northwest -- this time gusting to 20 mph+ during the afternoon into the evening.
