Forecast: A Calming Chill
There will be no thunder, no hail, and no 60 mph winds today. Instead, we will transition into a kinder, gentler weather pattern with diminishing winds and sunshine. Nevertheless, it will be chilly -- at least for the next couple of days.
Not as windy but chilly. Mid 40s. While the winds will gradually ease today, you'll notice them this morning. With subfreezing temperatures and 15-20 mph northwest winds, wind chills will be only around 20 to start the day. But as sunshine warms the air and the winds wane, it will become brisk as opposed to bitter with mid to late afternoon high temperatures 43-47.
Overnight, temperatures drop back down to the mid 20s in the colder suburbs to near 30 downtown under clear skies and calm winds.
Keep reading for the forecast for next week...
Increasing clouds, light precipitation at night. 45-49. Mostly sunny skies in the morning will give way to mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon as a weak area of low pressure approaches the region. High temperatures will likely fall just shy of 50. Overnight, a period of light rain is possible (50% chance) that could mix with and change to snow (especially north and west) between about 5 p.m. and 2 a.m. Little or no accumulation is expected. Temperatures near 40 (when any precipitation begins) should gradually fall to 28-32 by morning.
A LOOK AHEAD
Tuesday through Thursday will likely be dry and seasonable. Day time highs will probably be around 50 Tuesday warming to 55 by Thursday. Overnight lows will generally be near 30 in the colder suburbs to the mid 30s inside the beltway. Some rain may develop during the day Friday, with highs in the 40s.
