A strong weather system is moving away from the DC area, taking the rain and a little bit of frozen precipitation away. As this system moves out, an area of Arctic atmospheric high pressure settles in delivering the coldest air of the winter (so far).
Bottom line: It will turn very windy and colder throughout the day. Dangerous wind chills overnight. Very cold for Martin Luther King Day tomorrow. The next D.C. weather system looks to arrive with rain on Wednesday.
**There will be a lunar eclipse tonight (the Earth’s shadow will fall upon the moon). This starts tonight at 10:43 PM, full eclipse at 12:12 AM. Bundle up to check out the “Super Blood Wolf Moon”!
Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday will be the coldest this season with subzero wake-up wind chills and air temperatures in the teens. High temperatures will only reach the lower 20s with wind chills in the single digits to lower teens. Dress in layers if headed downtown for the MLK parade in the city. Of course, you could choose to stay warm at home and watch it live on WJLA 24/7 News live.
Temperatures moderate by midweek as our next weather maker moves our way - with the potential for yet another round of wintry weather.
Have a great Sunday!
