A taste of winter...

Jason Samenow @ 1:15 AM

The coldest morning of the season is here. When you head out this morning, it will be below freezing just about everywhere thanks to a strong, cold Canadian high pressure center. Reagan National should be near 32, Dulles 23 and BWI 27. This afternoon, under full sunshine, temperatures will recover, with highs near 50. (Yesterday's lows were 36 at National, 31 at BWI and 27 at Dulles).

The nice thing about November is that cold spells are typically short-lived. So by Thursday, we should be above 60 again. Great news for those who have Veteran's Day off. Of course, the flip side is that warm spells are also short-lived, and temperatures will drop Friday in the wake of another cold front.
