Today's Forecast

ABC7’S BRIAN van de GRAAFF

The new work week will bring significant changes to the weather. The transition will be Inauguration/Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday as an arctic cold front approaches the area. Morning sunshine will give way to increased afternoon cloudiness with light winds ahead of the front and highs in the mid 40s. Once the front comes through in the late-afternoon, there could be a sprinkle or flurry, followed by the coldest air in a couple years on blustery northwesterly winds.

Tomorrow will be bitter with temperatures only in the 20s with wind chills in the single digits at times. The cold weather will continue into Wednesday with highs again in the 20s although the winds will be lighter. By Thursday, the clouds will increase as a storm approaches from the west. We may see a wintry mix arrive by late Thursday night and early Friday but a lot still remains unclear.

**Last time the temperatures at Reagan National failed to reach 30 degrees for a high was on January 22, 2011 (exactly two years ago) when the high was only 28. The last time the temperature failed to reach 30° for two consecutive days was January 29-20, 2010 when the highs were 27° and 23°.
