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.

Wednesday school closings and delays

The winter weather system that moved across the D.C. region on Tuesday has resulted in some school districts around the region to delay opening times or cancel classes on Wednesday, January 8.

Active storm pattern persists through middle of December

The first measurable snow event for the season wrapped up early Wednesday morning across parts of our region. Generally speaking the forecast was well done. From the snowfall totals that have rolled in so far, nobody is coming in with any surprise numbers in the higher direction. The bulk of the accumulation has been on the grass, and now that snow has stopped falling, and with sunshine and above freezing temperatures expected this afternoon, what little fell will most likely be completely gone by this afternoon.
