The winter solstice usually signals the start of the coldest months in Washington, DC. Not so much today as records were broken at all three local major airports. Look for a mild night ahead with a limited chance for scattered showers. Temperatures will slowly fall to the middle 50s and lower 60s. Record minimum lows are likely considering average highs for this time of year are in the upper 40s.

Expect another record breaker Sunday as highs push the upper 60s to lower 70s. A cold front to the west will march our way late afternoon and into the evening hours bringing an increased chance for showers and even a few rumbles of thunder. Gusty winds are likely Sunday night along with brief periods of heavier rain. Highs on Monday will occur during the early morning hours as colder air rushes in from the northwest.

Christmas Eve will be dry with highs in the lower 40s, even colder Christmas Day with highs in the upper 30s.
