Forecast: March Weather True to Form

By Matt Ross

In March, we can see wild swings in the weather as the atmosphere struggles to decide whether it is winter or spring. However, this week will make averages seem meaningful, with highs generally in the 50s and lows in the 30s. So for those of you who want the weather we are "supposed" to get in mid March, you got it.


Partly sunny, seasonable. 50-55. Some early morning cloudiness will give way to partly sunny skies and pleasant afternoon temperatures. Look for afternoon highs in the low to mid 50s. Overnight, skies will remain partly cloudy with lows from the upper 20s to mid 30s.


Partly sunny, breezy. Mid 50s. Wednesday will be much like today, just a bit warmer and a bit windier. Expect partly sunny skies with afternoon highs in the mid 50s. Winds will freshen in the afternoon as a weak front passes. Overnight, skies will be clear with lows in the low to mid 30s.

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend ...


Sunny early, cloudy Late. Mid to upper 50s. There should still be plenty of sunshine to be had on Thursday, though clouds may be on the increase late in the day. Afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 50s will cap off a three-day stretch of pleasant, seasonable weather. Overnight, clouds and increased humidity will keep our temperatures a bit warmer with lows only dropping to the low to mid 40s.


Right now, Friday appears like it will be the warmest day of the week with highs reaching the low to possibly mid 60s, but with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a chance of light showers.

A potentially more potent system may affect the DC metro area Saturday and Saturday night. The track and intensity of the system is still uncertain, but rain looks like a decent bet (50%) late Saturday and into the overnight hours with temperatures in the 50s falling into the 40s.

In the wake of the departing system, Sunday should be clear, windy and cool with temperatures in the mid to upper 40s.
