Inauguration Forecast: Cold in the Cards

By Capital Weather Gang

CWG's Full Forecast Through Inauguration Weekend

Tuesday, January 20, 2009
23-28F 29-34F Partly Cloudy 25%
Confidence continues to rise that temperatures will be on the cold side for Inauguration Day. It's too early to definitively say just how cold, but it could easily be a day much like today in D.C. (or perhaps a shade warmer), where highs are expected in the low 30s. A disturbance may approach the region during the day, but it's still a wait-and-see game as to whether precipitation (which would probably take the form of snow showers or flurries) will materialize. At the moment, a big storm doesn't appear likely. Confidence: Low-Medium

*Swearing in is scheduled for noon.


Reagan, 1985: Noon Temp: 7F. It was sunny, but bitter cold. Wind chill temperatures fell into the -10° to -20°F range in the afternoon. Related CWG Feature: Record Cold for Reagan
