* Freeze warning tonight for Fauquier, Loudoun, northwest Montgomery and Howard counties and locations to the north and west *

It was a chilly start, middle and end today. The sun helped, but the wind ensured there was only so warm we were going to feel. Highs near 60 are some 10 to 15 degrees below normal for the date. Winds kept wind chills in the 40s much of the day after dipping into the 20s and 30s Wednesday night. We’ve got another freeze risk tonight to the north and west before some warmer air starts to arrive Friday.

Tomorrow (Friday): It will be quite a bit nicer, thanks to lighter winds alone. Skies will be mainly clear and high temperatures warmer. We should reach the mid-60s in most spots.

Another cold night: We managed to stay a little warmer than anticipated in many spots last night. Lighter winds tonight should help some areas tonight. Record lows of 33 at Baltimore and 32 at Dulles should be safe, although readings could come close.
