After a storm responsible for heavy snow moves away, bitterly cold weather is in store for Washington, D.C.
After a mild start to the week, a storm produced between 4 and 7 inches of snow in the district and travel delays, but now leaves frigid air for the middle of the week.
Temperatures dipped into the single digits early on Wednesday, and as the wind increased RealFeel® temperatures plunged below zero. Gusty winds will also cause additional blowing and drifting snow.
Frigid weather will then continue through much of the balance of the week.
Temperatures will be stuck in the mid 20s through Friday. Although things will warm up into the middle 30s to start the weekend on Saturday, more cold will come on Sunday.
