CommuteCast: Scattered Showers Possible
Record high temperatures Tuesday?
Clouds and some morning showers associated with a warm front to the south of the area affected the region today as temperatures were once again a little warmer than average. High temperatures have climbed into the low 50s and will begin dropping during the commute. The ride home will be mostly dry, but a passing shower is possible with the best chances of such being in the District and to the south.
Tonight: Cloudiness will continue through the night and a passing shower is possible since the area remains in the vicinity of a warm front pushing north. As the front moves through, showers may become more widespread across the area for a time though most places will not see much rain. Spotty fog and drizzle are likely after midnight and where fog forms it should last through the early morning. Expect lows to only drop into the mid 40s in and around the city while they fall a little further -- to the low 40s -- out towards Herndon and Rockville.
Tomorrow: Tuesday will be very warm for February as temperatures are likely to be at least 20 degrees above average and closer to what we would expect in late April. In the city, highs should top out close to the record for the date of 70 degrees set in 1991. Mid to upper 60s are more likely in the suburbs north and west. Skies are expected to transition from mostly to partly cloudy during the day, but if the area can break out into more sunshine early, temperatures throughout the area may reach the low 70s for the second time in 2008.
