A Frosty? Week Ahead...

Jason Samenow @ 1:21 AM

A beautiful weekend ends (Sunday's high at Reagan National was 69, and Dulles and BWI each reached 71), and the reality of work confronts us, as does the wind and cold.

For today, in the wake of last night's cold front, it will be breezy and chilly, with highs only in the low 50s (temperature will not rise much during the afternoon).

Tonight, will be cold with temperatures near 30 in the suburbs, and 35 downtown. Time to bring in the outdoor plants, if you haven't already. Frost should be widespread, particularly in the suburbs.

Tuesday, expect sunny skies, but continued cool under Canadian high pressure. Highs again in the low 50s.

Tuesday night downtown DC may experience its first freeze of the season, with the low reaching 31 (25-30 in the suburbs).

Wednesday it will be a bit warmer, with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 50s.

On Thursday, we may reach 60 as winds shift to southwest ahead of a cold front which may bring some showers Thursday night.

By Friday, after some morning showers, it should be breezy and cooler, with temperatures steady or falling in the afternoon. The timing of the passage of this system could change-- but that's the way it looks now.
