WASHINGTON - Fickle February's frozen finale! After a mild month with only a trace of snow, our last two days of February will feature relatively rare below average high temperatures -- and maybe even some flurries around this afternoon and evening!
First things first: it's cold when you head out early today. FOX 5's Sue Palka says temperatures at dawn are in the mid to upper-20s and with gusts up to 25-30 mph -- we have wind chill temperatures near 20 degrees.
Sue says the day becomes a bit cloudier as a weak disturbance moves through producing scattered flurries or sprinkles of rain from late morning on. Afternoon temperatures climb to the mid-40s with wind chills in the 30s.
Those flurries/sprinkles may linger into the early evening. We clear the clouds out late and are back in the mid-20s overnight. Saturday looks quite chilly as well.
March starts on Sunday and it looks to "come in like a lamb." We begin another climb that will take us from low 50s Sunday to mid-60s by the middle of next week.
