PM Update: Some More Cold Before Moderation
Melting speeds up tomorrow, snow gone late week?
Following a bitterly cold start to the day, temperatures have rebounded this afternoon, but not a whole lot. Highs generally in the upper 20s have helped keep much of the recent snow on the ground, though some melting is occurring in the strengthening March sun. Enjoy it while it lasts, because the white ground will only be a memory in a few days.
Tonight: If you liked last night's temperatures you will be a fan of tonight as well. Temperatures in the 20s this evening will quickly fall after sunset, and lows will range from the upper single digits in the colder suburbs to the mid-teens downtown. Winds will be less of a factor, blowing around 5-10 mph from the northwest.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Wednesday will feature plenty of sunshine, temperatures rising above freezing and more in the way of melting snow. Remaining snow will help things stay relatively cool as highs mainly reach the mid-30s. Winds will be light and variable, but switching to the southwest late.

Climate Facts: Last night, lows dropped toward some of the coldest readings this winter. Baltimore Washington International Airport's 10 degrees was a record low for the date. Still very chilly, National's 14 and Dulles's 13 fell shy of records. While we were consumed with the snowstorm the last few days, February 2009 went down in the books as the driest February ever at National, with only a paltry .35" of precipitation.
Videos with Snow: Already miss watching the snow fall yesterday? Check out the Washington's Winter Wonderland video taken during the morning snowblitz. Kids (and dad's) also enjoyed yesterday's snowfall by doing some sledding in Washington. Finally, despite all the snow, thousands of people gathered at the Capitol to demand climate legislation.
