Seems very likely IAD gets its first freeze this week. BWI and RIC have a chance, but it’s not guaranteed. Lol DCA.

IAD just a couple days late for me. Blah. Come on BWI!

Later guesses for the other three won't be eliminated until at least one other station goes in this window of opportunity, as most of those who scored well on IAD have similar dates for BWI and some also for RIC. My thought that it would resemble 1963 has suffered from a fast forward, we had the warm dry three weeks and the warm wet week all compressed into one month now Nov 2021 looking a bit too much like some colder analogues, wouldn't go with my present guesses now but could get lucky I suppose. There's a mountain of hot air from central DC, somebody should look into the reasons for that. ;)

Guest RIC Airport

BWI reached freezing before midnight 11/4. The CLI is based on standard time, not daylight savings time.

Meanwhile, RIC should reach it by sunrise as it currently 35 with plenty of time left.

If anyone had BWI for 11/4, they would've.. guest correctly

I’d be looking good if Richmond would just cooperate, but they’re stuck at 34. Maybe they’ll get the dip just before sunrise.

Might not make it. There was a slight wind most of the night. Maybe another shot tomorrow morning.
