Blasts of cold air and episodes of snow will continue through the end of the month around Washington, D.C.

Combined with the wind, RealFeel® temperatures can dip to or slightly below zero at times.

Frigid weather will continue through Friday with highs in the middle 20s.

A brief warmup, relatively speaking, is forecast on Saturday with temperatures to be above freezing for a few hours.

A large Alberta Clipper storm passing by to the north this weekend will kick up some wind and can bring a period or two of snow on Saturday. The storm will also return cold air Saturday night.

Another Alberta Clipper may visit the area during Monday with a chance of some snow. The track of that storm is uncertain at this time.

The air following the Monday clipper could rival the coldest of the season so far.
