to impact us over the weekend with big winds and wind chill on saturday. right now it's cool, 40's and 50's and the difference now is the warming trend is underway. the dewpoint is up a little bit, and the winds have shifted from the north to the east and now coming in from the southeast where it's not calm. that is a sign of a warming trend that we'll get going tomorrow. winds right now are calm, and around the country we have weak low pressure which has produced some snow up in d.v. c tonight and if you have friends or relatives in arlington, they are literally abandoning cars on the road, only for an inch of snow but it's turned into ice, and it's a mess. you have low pressure moving across the rockies and that cold front is going to impact us early on friday.
