While there were a few peeks of sunshine yesterday, there was little else to recommend on{ }what was an unrelievedly chilly and dreary{ }day.{ } The high temperature at Reagan National was a mere 39 degrees and with winds gusting to 24 mph, the wind chill values stayed in the 20s all day long.{ } { }Not since March 4, 2009 had a March day not managed to reach 40 degrees.

Today is dawned even colder than yesterday.{ }And with the same low pressure system in the Canadian Maritimes{ }sending more clouds and cold air our way, there is little improvement over Saturday's chill.{ } Winds are{ }gusting{ }to 30 mph and temperatures{ }are struggling into the upper 30s under mostly cloudy skies.

For some cheer, look for Monday to be mostly sunny as high pressure arrives for a brief visit.{ } Tomorrow will still be breezy and chilly however with highs only in the lower 40s.{ } Thereafter, weather models show the potential for a coastal storm Tuesday night through Wednesday that could bring the area a mix of rain and snow.{ } Stay warm and enjoy your Sunday!
