The D.C. area remained largely shuttered for a second day in anticipation of what weather officials call an unprecedented storm system barreling along the entire East Coast.
D.C. officials opened cooling centers and outdoor pools to help residents cope with temperatures that soared into the 90s yesterday.
"The sun will start to peek through ... but it will still be mostly cloudy," he said, adding that because the storm covers "such a huge area of real estate, it could still be breezy, even if it's several hundred miles away."
"Because it's so late in the year, the cold air coming in from behind, it's going to turn into more of what a nor'easter would be," Mr. Schoor said, referring to wintry and brutal East Coast storms caused by cold air blowing from the Atlantic Ocean. "Typically this happens this time of year, you start to get these systems, there's just not rain associated with it."
