Bitter Cold along with a Little Snow

This is how the Capital Weather Gang described the snow from this morning:
A thin band of snow squalls that passed through D.C. and surrounds dropped a quick half inch to inch in the spots that got the most. This snow streamer hit mainly the city itself and northwest or southeast. The most intense of this activity should be winding down but some more snow showers may blow through today.
It was rather pretty. The sun was out, for a little while, at the same time the snow was coming down.

As for the cold back to the the weather gang:
If wind chills of today — hovering in the 0 to 10 degree range so far — aren’t cold enough, wait until tonight. A wind chill advisory goes live at 6 p.m. for wind chills of 0 to -5 overnight. Here’s what the GFS model is showing for shortly after midnight, and it’s pretty representative of what we should see throughout the night.
With that forecast, sounds like a good idea to snuggle up with two warm kitty cats and read a good book.

The view out the front door.

A look at the clouds from the Rhode Island Avenue platform. Not much fun standing up there this morning.

A look up Connecticut with some light snow falling.
