PM Update: Mainly Clear After Morning Action
Major cold on the horizon? What about snow chances?
* Inauguration Weather: Swearing-In Date Switcheroo *
After early-morning black ice and a late-morning, quick-moving "flurry storm," skies have been partly to mostly sunny throughout the day. Highs have reached the low 40s across the area, but gusty winds from the west have kept wind chills locked in the 30s. We'll see mostly clear skies continue through the evening and into the night.
Tonight: Mostly clear skies will be accompanied by typically chilly mid-winter temperatures. The suburbs should get into the mid 20s while those in D.C. stay closer to the upper 20s. Winds of today will subside a bit, but continue to blow around 10-15 mph.
Tomorrow: Friday will be mostly sunny early with some clouds arriving later in the day. And it'll be chilly with highs topping out right around 40 and winds continuing around 10 mph.
Cold... Snowy? So far, winter has been disappointing for local snow lovers. Is that about to change? Just in time for the normally coldest part of the year, next week looks to feature frigid Arctic air, with the latest data suggesting bitter cold could arrive around Wednesday, give or take a day. CWG's Matt Rogers explores the anticipated cold spell in detail over on EasternUSwx.com. We'll have to watch for some wintry threats, both before and after the cold arrives.
