PM Update: Cloudy, chilly and wintry
For the first time since last February, the air has a distinctively "wintry" feel. The clouds coupled with a breezy chill have capped temperatures in the low 40s after morning lows at or below freezing. Indeed, this is the coldest day since February 26. Cold, mostly cloudy conditions continue tonight, tomorrow, and beyond.
Through Tonight: Flow around low pressure to our north keep the conveyor belt of clouds streaming in along with the cold air. Lows range from the low 30s downtown to the mid-to-upper 20s in the suburbs.
Tomorrow (Friday): It's a day much like today. We'll see considerable cloud cover with some sunny breaks at times. High temperatures ascend into the low 40s with a northwest wind around 10-15 mph.
AccuWeather predicts white Christmas for D.C. region: Accuweather.com's chief long range forecaster, Joe Bastardi, believes 50 percent of the U.S. will have at least one inch of snow cover on December 25 - including Washington. The norm is just 25 to 35 percent. Bastardi is also highlighting the potential for a "blockbuster" snowstorm with 6-12 inches of snow and 30-40 mph winds from D.C. to Boston, perhaps around mid-December. For the record, I don't put into a lot of stock into these kinds of predictions. We'll blog more about this later.
