Cold Front Pushes Wind, Chilly Temps into DC Area

Storm Team4 says it's cooling down

NBC Universal, Inc.

Break out your favorite fall scarves and jackets, D.C.: A cold front arriving Saturday will bring brisk winds and cause temperatures to tumble through the weekend.

Brisk winds with gusts up to 25-30 mph are set to blow through into the evening after some midday showers moved out of the region, Storm Team4 says.

Highs will only reach the mid-50s — about 10° lower than Friday. Layer up for dinnertime plans: Temps will be back in the 40s. Areas outside the Beltway could see even lower temperatures — like the 20s and 30s — late into the evening and overnight.

It will be cold enough in the highest elevations of the Blue Ridge mountains and West Virginia that wet snow mixed with rain is possible. 

Sunday will be chilly with temperatures in the 30s overnight and highs just hitting the low 50s. A passing shower is possible overnight into Monday.

The chill will stick around into the work week, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s on Monday and Tuesday. We could have the 60s back on Wednesday and Thursday.
