PM Update: Chilly tonight with frost in outlying areas, then a fine Friday

* Frost advisory for northern Md., Shenandoah Valley (map) *

Compared to recent warmth, today was a bit on the chilly side with highs barely edging above 60. Tack on winds gusting from 20-30 mph and it felt like...well...March. Tonight’s cold enough that frost may be an issue in the far north and west suburbs. Temperatures are a touch warmer Friday, with less wind but more cloud cover.

Through Tonight: Skies are mostly clear with low ranging from the mid-30s in the colder suburbs (Frederick and Loudoun county) to the low-to-mid 40s downtown. Winds are light.

Friday: A crisp morning warms steadily as the sun rises and a wind from the south streams in. But increasing afternoon clouds put a break on temperatures, with highs in the mid-60s. Any rain showers should hold off until nighttime.
