Bitter chill blasts D.C. area


Bitter chill blasts D.C. area

WASHINGTON - After the region has spent the last several days digging out from Tuesday’s snowstorm, the D.C. metro area is bracing for snow to move through the area again Thursday.

Another upper level disturbance associated with the next cold front heading this way will bring clouds and gusty breezes back to the region. Flurries and even more organized snow showers could develop during the day as highs peak in the 20s. At times, it will feel like temperatures are in the 10s.

Friday will be mostly sunny and still frigid with temperatures in the lower 20s.

Tuesday’s storm – the biggest in three years – dumped inches of snow on the region. 

ABC7 Meterologist Lauryn Ricketts says that "we are in this for some time" - these are the coldest sustained temperatures we've seen for four years, and she doesn't see us reaching seasonal temperatures until early next month.
