At the Takoma Metro stop in Washington D.C. Tuesday morning, the temperature was in the twenties and is expected to get even colder.

Even so, residents of the District didn't flinch when it came time to go to work. A Ms. Davis, was out bright and early helping distribute the Washington Post Express newspaper: "I didn't have a problem. I'm 64 years old and I didn't have a problem."

It's going to feel even colder, with flurries expected all across parts of the D.C. metro area.

According to the forecast at NBC Washington, the area will experience a high of just 34 degrees, before plunging down to 27 degrees overnight. Gusts are expected to reach as high as 30 mph, which should make it feel like it is in the teens.
