coming into this after this record warm december that we've had and a pretty mild november. so it's back to the teens in the morning and some single digitss in the northern and western suburbs. high pressure is going to be be moving a little bit off the coast and that will allow us to am what up by tomorrow afternoon. by no means was it a warm day, d but a lot better than today. t by some 10-degrees. still on the chilly side, no s winds and definitely you won'tou have to bundle up again. we are in the teens in many i areas tonight with that air treatment at gaithersburg. 15 at dulles, culpeper down to 14-degrees. i thought i'd show you around a the country a little bit. buffalo, 32. it's starting to warm a little bit in the middle part of the country. and that's the trend we will begin to see as we go over the next two days. the next two nights not nearly as cold as the last two have
been. the snow that they got in the outer banks.ter what i want you to notice is the wind direction coming from north to south. the wind flow across the norfolk area and into the outer banks make what we call ocean effects. they had to cancel the snow in bear county. c hard to believe that the outer banks got accumulating snowatin before we did. d we talk about lake effect snow from time t time. we get the same thing with the biand with the ocean if it is cold enough and the water is warm enough. the jetstream dipping down, butg it's going to move back up toack the north. that will allow the tropical jets to get a little bit more active over the next few days d and a couple more chances of rain in our forecast for arere then of the week. friday i think there will be be some rain around and then on sunday. yes, we're watching thread skind forecast for you, too. 6 as we get closer to the beltway. we will be back with the w
