CommuteCast: Most Rain to Wait Until After Rush

By Ian Livingston

Windy start to March tomorrow

A slow warming trend began today and high temperatures have reached the upper 30s and low 40s across most of the area. Winds have once again kicked up -- this time out of the south in advance of a cold front -- adding a little extra chill to the air. Clouds that have been on the increase today will continue to lower and thicken this afternoon and early evening. The commute home will be mostly dry before rain chances increase later this evening.

Tonight: Most locations will see some rain tonight as a cold front associated with an Alberta Clipper passing well to our north moves through the region. Rain totals are expected to be light but it's probably wise to bring an umbrella for evening or late night activities. Low temperatures will hit the mid 30s in D.C. and southeast while dropping close to freezing in the north and west suburbs, where a few snowflakes could mix in with the rain.

Tomorrow: The first day of March will feature increasing sunshine throughout the day after any lingering morning clouds and showers depart. Winds will once again be quite gusty -- with some gusts up to 35mph during the day Saturday in the wake of the cold front. High temperatures will reach the mid 40s across the region.

Warmer conditions are expected Sunday and into the beginning of next week.
