    Bundle up for a chilly week.

    Low temperatures are expected to stick around this week, and the Washington Nationals' home opener game Thursday may be vexed by rain.

    A freeze warning will be in effect for D.C. and parts of Maryland and Virginia from 11 p.m. Tuesday to 9 a.m. Wednesday. The National Weather Service warns residents that plants sensitive to freezing temperatures could be damaged or killed.

    A low of 33 degrees is expected Wednesday, with a low in the mid 20s about dawn in suburbs and rural areas, Storm Team4's Tom Kierein said. Later Wednesday, temperatures are expected to climb to a high of 58 degrees.
