First Freeze Warning, Frost Advisory as Cold Grips DC Area

NBC Universal, Inc.

Wednesday morning brought the first frosts and freezes of the season as spine-tingling cold gripped the Washington, D.C. area.

A freeze warning was in effect until 10 a.m. for areas including parts of Loudoun, Montgomery and Prince William counties. A frost advisory also ended at 10 a.m. for D.C. and several suburban counties. Go here to see all weather alerts from the National Weather Service

Residents of those areas were advised to protect tender plants from the cold and check outdoor water pipes and in-ground sprinkler systems. 

Chilly temps will top out in the low 50s Wednesday, even with morning sunshine.

Those who were spared frost and freeze Wednesday may still get it over the next few nights. Through at least Saturday, you can expect frigid overnight lows, with highs below 55°. That means it's time to track down your cold-weather gear, especially if you’ll be out overnight or early in the mornings.

Thursday is set to bring more sunshine to D.C. and areas north. If you're south of D.C., expect cloudy skies and some drizzly rain.

Friday is set to be mostly sunny.

Partly cloudy skies return Saturday, but rain chances are under 20%.

A warming trend will begin next week, with temperatures in the 60s and dry conditions.
