It was an unseasonably cool start to the day with some locations in the 30s, and this was the coolest air we've felt in quite some time.

Temperatures dipped into the 30s in parts of the ABC7 viewing area earlier this morning (see image), but the temperature remained in the 50s at Reagan National Airport (DCA). Nevertheless, it was the coldest morning since May 12th for DCA, which is 135 days ago.  Another way to look at it: 37% of a year passed before DCA dropped to 53°. The average low today is 59° for DCA.   

Martinsburg, WV bottomed out at 39°, which is their coldest reading since April 29th (148 days). This was 11° below average. Hagerstown and Dulles Airport were more in line with DCA and saw their coolest readings since mid May. 

If you don't like the cooler weather, take comfort in knowing that today was the coolest morning of the foreseeable future was you can expect mornings in the 50s and 60s the rest of the week and through the weekend. However, I say bring on the cold and snow!
