The coldest night of the season is upon us. As the gusty winds from the daytime settle down, temperatures are going to drop quite a bit. It’s also very dry outside, so keep a humidifier on in your house tonight if you can. Things will start to moderate a bit throughout the week, with much milder temperatures expected by Thanksgiving.
Through tonight: Winds will begin to calm down over the next few hours, leaving us with clear, calm and cold conditions overnight. Temperatures will probably fall into the teens outside the Beltway. Closer to D.C., temperatures will settle in the low 20s.
