PM Update: A few flurries and still cold
Temperatures inch up slightly on Tuesday
Well, it's still cold, but fortunately it's also a little less windy! Some conversational snow flurries or snow showers are now making their way into the area from the north, but they won't amount to much. Highs have mostly risen into the low 30s, with some spots like National Airport topping freezing this afternoon for the first time since late Friday.
Through Tonight: Skies are mostly cloudy through the overnight with some passing flurries or a snow shower possible, mainly early. Temperatures stay cold, though slightly modified compared to recently due to the clouds. Lows range from around 20 to 25. Winds slacken a bit more, but continue around 10 mph.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Look for variably cloudy conditions, probably no better than partly sunny, on Tuesday. Temperatures moderate slightly to highs mainly in the middle 30s. Winds continue around 10 mph with some stronger gusts particularly during the afternoon.
Widespread cold: The recent cold wave is not only hitting the Washington region, but much of the country. Records have been set all the way into Florida the past few days where officials in the citrus industry expect to escape this spell without serious damage to the crop. Yet another -- potentially stronger -- shot of cold air is expected late this week into the weekend.
