PM Update: Another Darn Cold Night, Then Warmer
In the teens again tonight; 50s to near 60 for weekend
The brilliant sun felt warm today behind the windshield of a car or inside an office window. Outside, however, it's just been darn cold. The sun has done nothing to reduce the bitter feel of highs only in the mid-20s, and winds gusting to near 25 mph have kept wind chills in the single digits and teens. Rest assured, however, that relief is on the way.
Tonight: Winds will let up this evening and become light or even calm at times overnight. But temperatures will be frigid once again with lows in the low-to-mid teens in the burbs and mid-to-upper teens downtown under partly to mostly clear skies.
Tomorrow (Friday): As a warmer air mass begins to move in, mostly sunny skies should help temperatures rebound nicely from morning lows in the teens -- all the way to afternoon highs in the low 40s with light winds. Still kinda cold, but at least a sign of warmer weather to come.

Another City in Need of Flinty Chicago Toughness: London's response to snow "is even more hysterical than Washington's," writes Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum, who found herself stuck in the snow that crippled London earlier this week. It was the city's worst snow in 18 years, and while we can barely buy a flake in D.C., apparently more is on the way across the pond.
