enjoy it. if you don't like the cold stuff, i'm sorry what i'm about to tell you over the a half, three minutes. you're not going to be happy but today 44 by 3:00. really delightful. winds are light, too. tonight not bad. still in the mid-30s at 9:00. we won't get too cold tonight. but things are going to change drastically by friday morning, even tomorrow afternoon. temperatures now range from 35 in hagerstown to 43 in culpeper. still only 33 on the bay in reedville with the wind coming in just off the water. 37 in easton and gaithersburg and frederick right now. leesburg, too. just a beautiful afternoon. one thing about the niceness today, it's so dry so you don't even feel it as cold as it is with the dew point at 18. feels warmer than 40 with that northeast wind at 5. so we really don't have much of a windchill we're talking about either. but our winter headlines focus on an arctic front, the first of two i'm tracking over the next seven days. this one arrives tomorrow afternoon. fall temperatures -- falling temperatures and even snow showers possible. highs upper 30s, low 40s late
morning, midday. even colder air mass will be here for sunday. so later saturday, saturday night we can get another round of snow showers as that second arctic air mass moves in. and this one is going to be even colder. i think highs on sunday stay in the teens. next week, we're watching a potential messy storm on tuesday. too early to know fit' going to be pure snow or snow to rain mix. it just looks sloppy at this point. we'll be tracking that for you. the edge of the arctic air, the subzero stuff just getting toward winnipeg, almost down into minnesota now. international falls, too. all this cold air will sink south. the nice day we have now, well, again i think the next week or two thday we're going to see. plenty of clouds as you get west of the mountains here. a little rain showers in toward areas of southern ohio but now the snow on the leading edge of the colder air toward headed toward ontario, northern ohio. the arctic blast will be moving toward chicago later today and that's what we're tracking for tomorrow. so the futurecast we're pretty quiet for the rest of the afternoon. a few clouds tonight.
in the mountains by tomorrow morning, northwesterly winds will start to produce some snow showers. again midday we'll be okay but then as the front comes through, the winds kick and we're talking gusts tomorrow 30, 35, maybe 40 miles an hour. temperatures will drop into the 30s. a couple of snow showers will fly in the afternoon. we'll be tracking that for you. and then tomorrow night as temperatures fall into the teens, w.s by friday morning -- w.s by friday morning potential -- wind chills by friday morning potentially will be down to the 3-degree range. friday high temperatures will stay in the 20s on friday. when you factor in the winds, yeah, it's going to be a rough day to be outside. today beautiful, 45. 31 tonight but mid- to upper 20s north and west. tomorrow we get to 42. but i think that's late morning, midday before temperatures drop in the afternoon. winds kick up. the snow shower here or there. teens thursday night and low teens north and west. only in the 20s on friday. saturday we'll track.
saturday evening potentially for snow showers or a period of light snow ahead of the next arctic boundary. 16 is all i'm forecasting for a high on sunday and the potential messy tuesday. et way it's great weather -- either way it's great weather for some chocolate. more from our kitchen. hey, valentine xñaó5ñ
