PM Update: Cold Winds With Snow Showers
Another dusting? Frigid on Thursday before warm-up
Following a surprise dusting to an inch or so of snow this morning, today has been defined by cold temperatures and winds gusting as high as 25-30 mph. The instability created by cold air aloft and some times of sun has led to a mostly cloudy afternoon and more snow showers. Highs that reached the low-to-mid 30s will fall back into the 20s this evening as a gusty breeze continues.
Through Evening & Overnight: Snow showers may linger into the evening -- some spots could pick up a quick dusting -- along with a gusty breeze. Skies clear out overnight and temperatures plummet as lows reach the mid-teens in colder spots to near 20 in D.C. Overnight winds from the northwest around 10-15 mph, with higher gusts, will send wind chills into the single digits at times.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Mostly sunny skies will not do much to warm us up on Thursday, and in fact it should be colder than today as highs only reach the upper 20s in most locations. A northwest wind will still be gusting early in the day before beginning to taper off by evening.

Clean Your Car, Or Else: The D.C. Council has passed an emergency law allowing police officers to stop individuals driving around with ice and snow on their car. "Driving while snowy" could currently land you a warning, but in the future there may be fines or traffic school for offenders.
