    DC: Record Warmth, Then Cold Returns Before Christmas

    As a storm brings everything from snow and ice to flooding and tornadoes to parts of the nation this weekend, less violent weather is in the offing around Washington, D.C.

    The only major travel concern locally is for gusty winds Sunday.

    Some showers will dampen the metro area on Sunday, mainly in the afternoon.

    Temperatures will once again reach record levels on Sunday.

    After Saturday's previous record high of 68 F from 1923 was shattered, Sunday's record of 72 F from 1889 is also expected to be broken.

    Much colder air will sweep back into the region Monday night, Tuesday and into Christmas Day.

    There is a chance of flurries Tuesday into Tuesday evening. A few spots could get a dusting of snow by Christmas.
