Temperatures will be frigid again tonight but not quite as cold tomorrow.

Tonight:
Mostly Clear
Lows: 1-12
Wind: W 3-5 m.p.h.
Wednesday:
Mostly Sunny, Not as Cold
Highs: Near 30
Wind: S 4-8 m.p.h.
Thursday:
Partly Cloudy
Highs: Upper 30s
Wind: S 4-8 m.p.h.

The extreme cold continues but the winds are slowly diminishing and will not be a factor later tonight. A WIND CHILL ADVISORY continues tonight well north and west of Washington. Under clear skies temperatures will fall to the single digits in most suburban areas and 10 degrees or just above downtown. Sunshine returns tomorrow with temperatures rebounding to the upper 20s.

On Thursday, temperatures will climb into the upper 30s. Late Thursday night and early Friday morning, we will be keeping an eye on a small atmospheric disturbance that could bring a touch of light snow or flurries to parts of the area. It is not a strong system. BUT, roadway surfaces will be below freezing. So any flake that falls on untreated surfaces could stick. So we want to just give you a heads-up at this point. Temperatures will reach the 40 degree mark by the afternoon, so IF anything falls…its effects will be short lived. How about 50s for the weekend? That’s in our forecast, too.
