Big changes in the next 24 hours.

This Afternoon:
Snow moving in
Highs: Mid 40s
Wind: NE 5
Snow, Minimal Amounts-Winds increase after 12AM
Lows: Mid-Upper 20s
Wind: NW 15-25+
Becoming Mostly Sunny and BRISK!
Temperatures: Low to Mid 20s
Wind Chill: Single Digits

Snow will continue to move through the region this afternoon and into the evening and overnight hours.  A winter weather advisory is in effect this evening/tonight for Northern Maryland and parts of West Virginia for the potential of 2-4" of snow, but in D.C. the ground temperatures will likely melt the snow at onset, especially on the roads and we'll only make out with around an inch, give or take a little. 




The big story here is that temperatures will plummet behind the front with very windy conditions.  Wind gusts may reach 30-40mph overnight and early Friday.  Temperatures will fall into the 20s overnight and stay there through the day on Friday, but with the strong winds it will feel like single digits for much of the day. Make sure to bundle up tomorrow!


Saturday morning we will wake up to the teens with temperatures warming up briefly on Sunday.  Another round of rain/snow on Sunday and Monday with a second arctic blast invading the region on Tuesday. For more details on the wintry weather, check out today's blog.
