WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - A bitter cold Thursday morning in the Washington, D.C. region as we keep an eye on another snow threat that could impact us by the end of the week.
FOX 5's Mike Thomas reported temperatures in the teens with sub-zero wind chills during the morning hours. A Wind Chill Advisory was in place until 10 a.m. for the D.C. metro area. Wind chill temperatures as low as negative 10 degrees were possible. Further west, a Wind Chill Warning with the possibility of negative 30 degree temperatures was in place.
Will need to adjust numbers with new data...but here is an early call on Friday's light snow event.— Mike Thomas (@MikeTFox5) January 31, 2019
Key word there is "light". No "thump"...& dry air needs to be overcome. Probably a hit & miss event (except mountains). Only concern is every flake sticks with how cold ground is. pic.twitter.com/k7ahY0JGcX
Another snow threat is on the radar, Thomas says. There is the possibility that a winter weather system will push its way into our area during the morning and mid-afternoon hours Friday. The system could possibly leave an inch or two of snow on the ground in the metro region. Because temperatures are so cold, almost all the precipitation that falls will most likely stick to the ground which could cause delays across the region's roads. Look for the snow to move into the area around 10 a.m. and possibly last through 2 p.m.
After a snowy and cold Friday we can expect warmer temperatures to move our way. Sun and clouds with temperatures in the upper 40s on Saturday and upper 50s on Sunday. By Tuesday of next week, Thomas says, we could even see temperatures near 65 degrees.
It has definitely been a rough week with the cold and some snow too. For those who hate this type of weather, how about a little good news for warm weather folks??— Mike Thomas (@MikeTFox5) January 31, 2019
