Ice and snow began to fall Saturday night across much of the D.C. region, and it fell fast before it moved east ahead of a very strong front. Behind that cold front, however, lies the bitter arctic air and high winds.
Wind chill warnings and advisories are in effect for much of the region (see the image above for specific areas included). Areas in the wind chill advisory could see wind chills as low as -15 degrees, while those in the wind chill warning area could experience wind chills between -20 and -30 degrees.
A high wind warning is also in effect until 2 p.m. Sunday for much of the area. Tolbart says gusts of 55-60 mph are possible, and those kinds of winds can be damaging. As of Sunday morning, power crews are working on about 12,000 customers without power in DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.
