PM Update: Cold front to usher in strong winds
Very chilly on Thursday with gusty westerly breezes
After last night's dousing of rain (with some snow and sleet thrown into the mix), the daylight hours have been relatively calm. The only story this storm has left is a cold front that should pass through this evening with perhaps a few isolated showers and then strong winds. Highs today reached the low 50s, thanks in part to a southwesterly breeze and a little sun. Get ready for some cold winds... they are on their way for tonight and tomorrow.
Through Tonight: The cold front and any isolated showers should be out of here by 8 p.m. or so, and very gusty winds from the west will crank up behind it bringing cold air into the area. Lows range from near 30 to the mid-30s, with wind chills in the 20s. A few gusts near 50 mph are possible behind the front, especially north and west of D.C., maybe enough to cause some isolated downed trees.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Bundle up, it's going to be a chilly one! Mostly sunny skies will be little match for some fresh cold air and strong west winds gusting over 30 mph at times. Highs likely only rise into the upper 30s and around 40, with wind chills closer to freezing or below.
