Some possible 15-word rewritten titles are: – Gusty winds and chilly nighttime ahead, but expect brighter skies tomorrow afternoon – Forecast: Clearing up but staying cool tonight, followed by windy and sunny Wednesday – Evening weather update: Low temperatures and blustery conditions, then more sun and wind tomorrow

With winds blasting past 40 mph through the late afternoon and early evening, the mercury drops through the 40s and plummets into the frozen 30s come nightfall. Although the winds may diminish, it won’t be by much. If you’re stepping out in the evening or early morning, expect to be hit with a wintry blast.
As you contemplate the sub-zero temperatures, why not tune in to our daily D.C. forecasts on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Echo or check out our other options.
Clear conditions will prevail through tonight, with lows ranging from the upper 20s to mid-30s. However, the northwest winds won’t abide, staying up around 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts while making it feel considerably colder than the thermometer indicates.
Tomorrow brings more sunshine and gusty winds, but don’t be fooled by the golden rays as they won’t provide much respite from the frigid temperatures. Highs will hover around 50, with gusts reaching around 30 mph.
In the face of this new winter regime, Wednesday’s average high will be a mere 54 degrees in the city, but we’re gaining about 2.5 degrees a week. The consistently cool temperature actually sets the stage for the potential of some late-season snowflakes with Friday and the late weekend into next week. Keep an eye out, as timing is everything when it comes to snowfall. If the storm hits the right track, a few inches could accumulate even at this time of year.
