After summer-like weather the past few days, get ready for the first taste of "winter" air!

I wrote a blog earlier in the week about the common fall fluctuations this time of year.  Well, you can read about it all you want, but ready or not, here comes the first blast of cold air to our region since March!

Temperatures go from the 80s to the 40s.  Yes, a 40° temperature drop!  Look at highs on Friday.  The cold air is getting closer. 

High Temperatures Friday, October 5th

The coldest air will settle into the D.C. area on Sunday.  Highs will only be in the 40s to near 50 degrees!  Keep in mind, 50 degrees is the average high for the beginning of December!  Not only will it be very chilly, but also cloudy and rainy on Sunday.  Here's a look at our hyperlocal futurecast model for Sunday at 4pm.  And yes, you're really seeing *possible snow in some of the higher elevations along the mountains of West Virginia.

Heading to the redskins game on Sunday?  Well, bundle up!  It will be bitter out there!  Grab the rain gear and pack on the layers to keep warm.
