      A WIND CHILL ADVISORY
      is in effect until 9 AM Sunday

      Sunny | Breezy and Frigid!
      Lows: 6 - 13

      Strong northwest winds picked up late Friday night and extremely cold arctic air dropped into the region Saturday. A few snow showers also accompanied the cold, frosting some spots and making for a beautiful winter picture Saturday morning. You'll want to snuggle close to your honey into Valentine's Day because it will be potentially dangerously cold! A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect until 9 AM Sunday morning as it could feel as cold as five below zero (-5 F) in and around the Washington D.C. region. The winds will finally ease through Sunday where it won't feel as cold as today, but high only in the 20s to near 30 are still very cold for the time of the year. Give some thought to your pets too, find a nice warm location for them to brave the dangerous cold.

      Now let's talk snow. As of right now, a WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect for possible snow on Monday with the potential for over 5" of snow, sleet, and ice for areas generally west of I-95, but I'll explain why that might be a bit too far east. By early on President's Day on Monday, light snow is forecast to develop. Light snow is expected to fall through the day until it mixes with and transitions first to sleet (ice pellets), then to freezing rain (rain that freezes on contact to a sheet of ice), and finally to just rain. The transition doesn't happen until sometime late Monday afternoon or into the evening hours while the transition to just rain doesn't appear to occur until around midnight. That leads to the big question, will we get enough ice and snow to close down work and school come Tuesday? With the latest information from today, it doesn't look like we'll be getting enough snow/sleet/ice to withstand the rain overnight Tuesday. That means I'm expecting just wet roads for the commute Tuesday morning. But before then, the snow will fall on very cold ground and roads with the potential for numerous slick spots where the roads aren't treated. Travel could be a bit dicey by Monday afternoon and through Monday night before temperatures warm enough to melt away the slush. Right now, we're forecast a general 1"-3" of snow before the transition Monday night across the immediate D.C. metro with higher totals to the mountains farther west possibly upwards of 3"-6"+.

      Stay warm on your Valentine's Day and have a great holiday weekend too!
