Pouring rain, thunder and gusty winds rushed into the D.C. area late Wednesday evening as a cold front brings back wintry temps.
Unseasonably warm temperatures will get pushed out of the area as a cold front sweeps through overnight. Rain showers will impact the region with an embedded area of heavy rain and gusty winds likely in spots until midnight to 1 a.m.
Storm Team4 declared a weather alert for Wednesday evening. Expect the wind to be gusty at times overnight, possibly up to 50/60 mph and windy conditions all day Thursday.
Wind chills will then be around freezing as rain tapers off Thursday morning. The weekend is looking chilly but mostly dry.
