Workweek wraps up wet; weekend may bring a touch of winter

After the month of January closed on a rather dry and uneventful note, the first week of February has brought a considerably more active pattern with showers having threatened the D.C. region over the past couple of days.

Bitter cold temps Friday; Saturday snow, wintry mix expected

The 'real feel' of January kicks in Friday with very cold air settling in. FOX 5's Gwen Tolbart says expect plenty of sunshine but bundle up! Don't be fooled as cold gusty Northwest winds of 10 to 15mph (gusts up to 25mph) will provide morning wind chills in the teens.

Winter's return! Cold temps, winter weather return to DC region as weekend arrives

Despite one minor snow event back on January 7th, winter has so far been pretty kind to us. In fact, since the winter solstice back on December 21st, D.C. has only had one single day where temperatures have failed to hit the 40° mark. Temperatures have exceeded 50 degrees on twenty of the past twenty-seven days, with four of those days above 60 degrees, and two above 70 degrees. The winter started with a winter break of sorts so to speak, but we are in for a little reality check later on Thursday evening, as winter cold finally returns to the D.C. region.
