    While waves of cold air and snowflakes will reach the Appalachians in the upcoming days, real chill and snow are still a little way off for Washington, D.C.

    Fresh cool air will arrive on Sunday with highs projected to be mainly in the mid 60s.

    However, with the sun out Monday, it will feel warmer than the actual temperature.

    As additional waves of cold air bringing some snow showers to the Midwest, some chilly air will break across the Appalachians during the middle and latter part of the upcoming week.

    The pattern later next week can produce the lowest daytime temperatures of the season throughout the region, along with the lowest nighttime temperatures for the city.

    Highs most days next Thursday through next Sunday are likely to be in the 50s with nighttime lows within a few degrees of 40.

    No snow is in the offing through the end of October for the city, but there is the potential for colder air with gusty winds around the end of the month.
