A cold weekend with highs in the 40s before we get a taste of spring.
WASHINGTON — This weekend will feel more like late winter, but next week we get an early taste of spring.
- Unseasonably cold through Sunday, highs in the 40s
- Wind chills Saturday and Sunday: 10s in the a.m., 20s/30s in the p.m.
- Warming trend starts Monday
- Wednesday and Thursday are warmest days with 60s and 70s.
- We also look to stay dry through at least Wednesday
A large storm in eastern Canada has the Jet Stream dipping far into the eastern U.S.A. This is allowing an unseasonably cold air mass to dominate the eastern half of the country through the weekend. You can see in the graphic below how the cold air descends on the DMV.
Temperatures will be running 5° to 10° below average through the weekend with highs in the 40s and wind chills Saturday and Sunday afternoon only in the 30s in D.C. but holding in the 20s north and west of town. Mornings will be worse with wind chills in the teens!
As we head into Monday, the storm in eastern Canada will pull away and this will allow the Jet Stream to lift north. Our surface winds will go more southwesterly and we warm up nicely with 60s by Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday will be the warmest days with 60s and some 70s across the region. Those highs are 10° to 15° above average.
