Mostly clear and warmer on Friday

Despite increasingly sunny conditions today, the first full day of spring has been somewhat cool, thanks to a stiff wind out of the northwest. Highs have reached the low and mid 50s across the area thus far and will top out within a degree or two of current temperatures. The drive home will be clear with continued gusty winds, so hold on tight to the steering wheel!

Tonight: Wind and colder than average temperatures will be the stories of the night as lows fall to around 30 degrees in the northwest suburbs and down to near freezing in D.C. and southeast. Skies will be clear throughout the night as winds continue to gust up to around 40 mph early before slowly diminishing overnight.

Tomorrow: Friday will be mostly sunny as well as a little warmer and less windy than today. Highs should reach the upper 50s to right around 60 degrees for most locations. Winds will continue to blow out of the northwest at around 10 mph during the day with some higher gusts possible. Clouds will begin to increase late as the next weather-maker approaches the region for the start of the weekend.
