Forecast: Temperatures and Sunshine Increase

By Jason Samenow

We welcome a good deal of sunshine over the next two days after two days of overcast. High temperatures, which have been slowly rising since Friday, will continue their ascent through Tuesday.

TODAY

Sunny a.m., partly cloudy p.m. 43-46. A cold, clear dawn (in the 20s) will transition to a sunny, seasonably chilly midday. High clouds will increase during the afternoon, with temperatures topping out in the mid 40s.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies overnight, with a sprinkle possible in the evening -- especially south of DC. Lows will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.

MONDAY

Mostly sunny. 50-55. It won't be like last Monday's 74 degrees, but 54 isn't bad for late February. High pressure overhead means lots of sunshine and not much in the way of wind.

Overnight, clouds increase with a bit of rain possible by morning (possibly mixing with sleet/freezing rain in the far northern and western suburbs). Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s (except low 30s outlying suburbs).

A LOOK AHEAD

Showers and perhaps a thunderstorm are likely Tuesday as a powerful cold front moves through the region. Temperatures will be mild ahead of the front, with highs in the mid 50s -- but they will fall sharply at night in the front's wake. Wednesday through Friday will be dry but cold, with high temperatures near 40 and lows in the 20s.
