An Arctic blast will drop temperatures into the teens and 20s in the D.C. area starting mid-week.
The cold air is expected to push into the area Wednesday night, and will bring with it wind and the possibility of some light snow.
The last time we saw snow in Arlington was when the remains of a giant snow pile in Ballston, left over from the January blizzard, finally melted. Unlike some past years, to our knowledge no flakes fell in November this year.
Are you looking forward to the first flakes of the season?
