Tomorrow (Saturday): It’s a mix of clouds and sun. Certainly not enough sun to make it feel great out there. Highs are in the upper 20s and lower 30s, but winds keep it feeling about 10 degrees colder than that much of the time. Those winds are out of the northwest around 10 to 15 mph, with gusts to 25 or 30 mph.
Saturday night: Under clear skies and slackening winds, we make a run at the coldest night of the year. Lows are mainly between about 14 and 20 degrees. If the city drops below 23, it’ll be the coldest night of the winter, and in more than two years. The last time it dipped to 22 or below was Feb. 3, 2019. That’s the longest streak on record by more than a year. Dulles and Baltimore have only made it to 19, as well.
Sunday: This is definitely the pick of the weekend. Sunny skies and weaker winds help make the chilly readings more bearable. Highs reach the mid-30s to near 40.
More snow: It’s been a snowy stretch the last few weeks, as long as you don’t live too close to National Airport. Here’s the latest map for the storm ending this morning. While it was about one to three inches of sleet mixed with other stuff locally, folks up in the high country saw as much as four to eight inches of mainly snow.
