The D.C. area will get a chance to dry out on Thursday with lots of sunshine, but gusty winds early will lead to bitter morning wind chills.

Yesterday was a record buster for rainfall throughout the area with Reagan breaking an all-time record with 3.10” of rain! Dulles and BWI Thurgood Marshall also set records with their 2.14” and 2.38” respectively. The system wrapped up so quickly that minimal amounts of snow fell, with only the higher elevations west getting the brunt of winter weather.
Winds will gust this morning making for a brisk and bitter start. Temperatures in the 30s combined with gusts to near 30mph will make for “feels like” numbers in the 20s. Winds will calm this afternoon but highs only peak in the mid 40s under mostly sunny skies. Temperatures climb to near seasonable levels for Friday near 50°, before a few added afternoon clouds stream in. A secondary blast of cooler weather ensures a very crisp weekend with highs in the lower 40s and lows in the 20s. We remain dry into the first half of next week. Have a good day.
