The coldest blast of the season sends our temperatures tumbling through the day, with winds gusting to near 50 mph.

After an inch of rain overnight, bitter cold air floods the region on Sunday.

Sustained wintry weather is not expected locally. An isolated slick spot isn't impossible, especially to the north.

It's rather tranquil into tomorrow afternoon before conditions go rapidly downhill.

It's mostly rain for the Beltway, but well to the north and west, it will be a hazardous winter ice storm that could bring travel to a full stop.

Snow accumulations could top two feet in some areas, and a thick glaze of ice could cause power failures.

Ski areas can expect a wintry mix, snow, and then tumbling temperatures.

A coating to a couple inches fell, politely melting on pavement for the most part.

Weather models are not being launched or improved.

Enjoy a serene Friday. Arctic chill arrives Sunday night, and there's a bunch of rain in the middle.

Some slick spots last into the morning commute, but expect generally passable conditions,

The snow is unlikely to amount to enough to cause widespread delays Friday morning.

Heavy snow may fall from Chicago to Boston, with potentially feet of snow in the interior Northeast.

It’s going to be a wild weekend, with wintry mix, heavy rain and bitter cold between Saturday and Monday.

Some light snow accumulation is possible Thursday night.

Beyond the potential snow, sleet and freezing rain it could bring, it's also going to deliver the coldest air of the season by Monday.

There could still be a lot of snow to come.

Accumulation of a coating to a couple of inches is possible.

We’ve got an active pattern shaping up tomorrow and into this weekend, with some light accumulation possible tomorrow night.

The tremor occurred at 6:30 p.m., about 136 miles offshore.
