    Novemberlike Chill Headed to Washington, DC

    Despite mild day on Monday, a late-week Novemberlike chill is headed to the Washington, D.C., area.

    High pressure promoted a good deal of sunshine over Washington, D.C., and mild afternoon temperatures on Monday.

    The mild trend will continue through Tuesday before cold air from Canada works its way to the mid-Atlantic coast on Wednesday, holding high temperatures that day to the upper 50s.

    A coastal storm developing along the leading edge of the cold blast could bring a bit of rain to the city Tuesday night.

    The chill that follows for Thursday and Friday will create daytime highs in the middle 50s with nighttime lows within a couple degrees of 40. AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will be even colder as brisk winds blow.

    The first snowflakes of the season are also headed to the Appalachians this week and will remain west of Washington, D.C.

    There are signs that even colder air, accompanied by gusty winds, will reach the city around the end of the month.
