The c-o-l-d week ahead

Jason Samenow @ 1:42 AM

It will be a bundle up kinda week, as the mercury may not get much above 40 for the duration. And there's snow to talk about (by the way, as of 1:50am, a heavy dusting had fallen in NW DC Sunday night/Monday morning, with light snow still falling--enough to make a snowball). Let's break the forecast down, day by day...

Martin Luther King, Jr.For today, Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, expect gusty winds and quite cold temperatures. Highs will only be around 30. Factor in the wind, and it will feel like the teens. Dress warmly if you are going to be participating in any of the MLK Jr. Day events that are outdoors.

After a frigid start Tuesday, it will be another chilly day but with lighter winds. After morning lows of 10-15, expect highs in the mid 20s.

On Wednesday, clouds will increase ahead of the next clipper, and a few flurries are possible late in the afternoon. Winds will turn southerly allowing temperatures to rise into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Friday looks to be cold, with highs in the low 30s.

Next weekend, there is a possibility of snow
. Could this be a big one? Stay tuned. Rest assured, CapitalWeather will provide the latest details and offer timely predictions each day.
