Hopefully you know where the sweatshirts and jackets are because you'll want them tonight and tomorrow! After a gusty Saturday, winds will diminish overnight and, with clear skies, lows will tumble! Check out these forecast lows for tonight.
The majority of the viewing area will remain above freezing; however, far western MD and the eastern panhandle of WV may see subfreezing temperatures. Freeze warnings are in effect for these locations.
We're not the only ones dealing with the big chill. Look how many counties are under frost and freeze warnings and advisories across the Midwest.
The forecast low for Reagan National is 45°. The last time the temperature fell below 50° at Reagan was on May 19th!
After a cold start tomorrow morning, highs will only reach the upper 50s to low 60s! Keep in mind, our average high this time of year is 72°. The last time D.C. had a high of 62° was back on May 29th.
Even though it will be quite chilly, we are not expecting to break any record low temperatures in the city. The record low at Reagan is 37° set back in 1948. The record low at Dulles is 32° from 1970 and 35° is the record low at BWI.
Regardless, you'll want to bundle up tomorrow morning and you'll likely want the sweater or jacket throughout the day! Here's to fall and the first weekend of October!
