CommuteCast: Seasonal Weather Conditions

By Ian Livingston

Slow warming trend continues Wednesday

With last night's disturbance long gone, today has featured afternoon cloudiness after abundant morning sunshine. High temperatures today have topped out in the low 50s so far, which is a few degrees higher than yesterday at this time. As temperatures begin to cool this evening, clouds will break for a time during the commute and it should be mostly clear by evening.

Tonight: Tonight will begin mostly clear, but clouds will increase overnight as a weak cold front passes through the area. The front will do little more than bring a temporary increase in clouds and a wind shift from out of the southwest to out of the northwest. Temperatures are expected to bottom out in the mid 30s for the District and they should fall to right around freezing in the northwest suburbs.

Tomorrow: Despite the passage of a cold front tonight, Wednesday will be mostly sunny and a little warmer than today. As noted previously, the main effect of the front will be to shift winds - which could gust to 25 mph at times -- from the northwest. High temperatures will range from the mid 50s west of the city, to the upper 50s in D.C. and southeast.
