Forecast: Rising Temperatures, Increasing Clouds

By Josh Larson

In the 60s Friday; chance of showers Friday and Saturday

High pressure overhead will yield another pleasant day with highs heading for the upper 50s to near 60 today. Tomorrow, temperatures go higher -- into the 60s -- but clouds will be on the increase as a cold front approaches from the west. The front will more or less stall over our region, allowing for several pulses of weak low pressure to push near or through the area Friday and Saturday. The result: Plenty of clouds and chances for on-and-off showers to end the workweek and begin the weekend.

TODAY

Partly sunny. Upper 50s to near 60. Enjoy another pleasant day today, with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s to near 60 in most spots. Expect a rather noticeable breeze (from the southeast at 10-20 mph) at times. Clouds will increase overnight, holding temperatures in the mid to upper 40s area wide.

TOMORROW

Mostly cloudy, stray shower. Mid 60s. Despite mostly cloudy to overcast skies, winds from the southwest will transport still milder air into the region. We'll look for above-normal highs in the mid 60s in most areas. A few scattered showers are possible, especially during the second half of the day.

Cloudy skies will linger Friday night with a stray shower possible and overnight lows in the low to mid 40s.

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend and into next week.

SATURDAY

Mostly cloudy, scattered showers. Near 50. Plan on plenty of clouds and a passing shower or two; steadier rain is possible if low pressure on track to pass south of the area drifts a bit further north than expected. Highs should be near 50. Overnight, a few more showers with lows in the mid 30s.

SUNDAY

Chance of a lingering morning shower. Then increasing sunshine. Breezy. Near 50. Sunday may start off cloudy with a slight chance of a stray shower. As the day wears on, however, skies should begin to clear, and it may very well be mostly sunny by late afternoon. Highs should once again be near 50, but a breeze from the northwest will make it feel colder.

Mostly clear and colder Sunday night with lows ranging from the upper 20s in typically chillier locales like Damascus and Reston to the low to mid 30s downtown.

A LOOK AHEAD

Monday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and pleasantly cool highs in the low 50s, followed by overnight lows in the mid 30s to near 40.

The early outlook for Tuesday is for partly to mostly sunny skies with somewhat milder high temperatures aiming for the 60-degree mark.

Our next area of storminess may pay a visit to the region on Wednesday, when highs may again climb to near 60.
