* wind chill warning Friday 7pm to Saturday 10am*

I saw the weather for a season today. Had I woken up early enough, it would have felt almost warm with temperatures in the 40s. Then the rain increased, and small hail fell, turning into snow and snow flakes, and even more relentless winds. Temperatures will drop into the low 10s this afternoon and evening and will continue to cool tonight. This is a cold that you can’t mess around with. Freezing wind chill is dangerous and can lead to hypothermia and frostbite.

At Dulles International Airport, the record is 22, which is also valid.

Some clouds form with the slight warmth of the sun. Gusts of wind and snow showers are not impossible. A gust of wind, about 25 mph.

Sunday (Christmas): It’s not that cold, but it’s still cold. Low temperatures range from 10 to 15 degrees Celsius, with highs in the mid-20s to near 30s. The sky will be mostly clear, but there may still be gusty winds.
