PM Update: Colder Air Poised to Make Return
Blustery Saturday on tap. Some white stuff next week?
A rising sun angle and longer daylight hours teamed up with mild southerly winds to produce a fairly warm one around these parts for January -- some would say we deserve it. Highs in the low-to-mid 50s were common across the area today, and the relative warmth will last through the evening. Hope you enjoyed the one-day taste of "spring-like" weather, because our friend of late -- cold air -- returns tomorrow.
Tonight: We'll see clouds on the increase ahead of a cold front, and temperatures will continue relatively mild. Look for evening readings to fall slowly through the 40s before dropping to overnight lows near freezing in the northwest suburbs, or down to the mid 30s for D.C. and south or east.
Tomorrow (Saturday): A morning cold front returns us to more typical mid-winter conditions tomorrow, as early cloudiness gives way to increasing sunshine. Temperatures will peak near highs of 40 while a chilly northwest wind, gusting to near 30 mph, blows new cold air into the area.
Easing Out of Winter? We are passing by the typically coldest time of year and averages are about to head back up. Does this mean we should expect more days like today in the near future? As far as daytime highs, not till the end of February and beginning of March. So, as the upcoming cold shot will remind us, there is still plenty of winter left. Now just to get some snow to go with it...
