9:30 p.m. – Freedom response expanded in the north
Weather service expanded the freezing warning, previously in practice only for areas southwest of Fairfax County, in the north. It now includes Loudoun, West Montgomery and Frederick County. In all these places, the temperature may fall to near or slightly below freezing tonight, which ends the growing season. You would be wise to cover or absorb sensitive plants.
Original post from late sunday afternoon
First wind, and then cold. The first act of strong winds ends in the next few hours. The second act will probably lead to the coldest night of the region since the end of April, with temperatures close to freezing in our cooler areas. Make sure to bring your plants inside tonight, and if you have a household like mine, make sure they are protected from cats who like to chew on plantations and leaves.

Tonight: Most sunny and cold, with temperatures in the 40’s to the late 50s for the rest of the afternoon. Winds and winds will gradually decrease at sunset. Clear conditions and light winds allow temperatures to be released quite efficiently overnight. As such, frost counseling is in place for a large part of the subway where flames are expected to fall in the mid 30’s. Around the center frost is less likely with low in the upper 30’s. In our southwest areas, including Fauquier and Prince William County, the winds are expected to be calm, which may cause some places to appear in the low 30s, giving a freeze warning.

Tomorrow (Monday): It will be a cold start, but the temperature will recover nicely as the day goes on. With high pressure firmly in place, it becomes clear with a slight south wind at 5 to 10 mph. Afternoon heights come up in the upper 50s to about 60 degrees. Partly cloudy tomorrow night, and not so cold, with low from the upper 30’s to the low 40’s.

Saturday night: Things went from calm to quite windy in a few minutes on Saturday night, as a powerful cold swept through the region a a little earlier than the forecast. Most of us experienced winds from 35 to 45 mph, with some higher values over Chesapeake Bay. Gusty winds resulted in 34 reports of deciduous trees and branches, mainly in the raised areas north and west of the district. The full list of winds can be found here.
