PM Update: Clouds Fade But Cold Remains
Bright moon tonight; Sunny Saturday in store
Mostly cloudy skies, and cold winds occasionally gusting over 30 mph from the northwest, helped hold temperatures within a few degrees of 40 across the area today. Breaks in the clouds are becoming more widespread this afternoon and that trend will continue into the evening. Winds won't subside too much till very late night, so prepare for wind chill values in the 20s if headed out this evening.
Tonight: Clouds left over from today will diminish overnight, leaving the area mostly clear by morning. Winds will also begin to subside late, but may still gust through the night. Lows will range from the low 20s in the far northwest suburbs to the upper 20s in D.C. and southeast.
Tomorrow: Saturday will feature lots of sun and chilly daytime temperatures. High pressure will begin its multi-day stay in the area, resulting in a diminished wind as well as sunny skies. Even with sunshine, highs will only make it back up into the upper 30s and close to 40 -- below average for this time of year.
Tonight in Space: With a mostly clear night upcoming, check out the sky! The moon will pass at its closest orbital range to Earth overnight some 350,000 km away. This is the first time in 15 years that this has occurred, and the moon will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than other full moons this year. If you decide to check out the moon, also be on the lookout for the Geminid meteor shower nearing peak.
