We keep talking about the sub-freezing cold for Inauguration Day, but how about the wind? It doesn't look pleasant.
Throughout the day, a wind from the north or northwest will blow persistently between about 10 and 15 mph (with higher gusts). That will make for wind chills in the teens during morning and night and only around 20 during the warmest part of the afternoon. Dressing warmly
will be a must.
Lastly, while a remote threat, we're still watching a disturbance dropping into the South that may develop into a storm off the Carolina coast. It will probably form too far to the east to produce snow here but it's close enough to not entirely ignore. Confidence
