Forecast: Bumpy Transition to Spring Continues
Spring becomes a bit more tangible this week as cold air masses continue to lose their punch. Nevertheless, jackets and umbrellas will be still be handy to have around as our seasonal transition comes at a price. Try to enjoy the typical late March weather. Before we know it, we will be lamenting the onset of heat and humidity.
Sunny, seasonably cool. Mid to upper 50s. Today will be your standard issue late March day. Look for sunny skies with a freshening southerly breeze in the afternoon. Afternoon high temperatures will be near normal in the mid to upper 50s.
Overnight, skies will become cloudy as a weak storm system moves well to our north. A passing shower cannot be ruled out (20%), especially well to the north and west. Low temperatures will be in the upper 30s to around 40.
Overnight, a few showers are possible (40%) as a pulse of weak, disorganized energy moves in from the west along a slow, northward moving warm front. Low temperatures will drop to the low 40s.
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend ...
Mostly cloudy, a.m. showers possible. Mid to upper 50s. Morning showers are possible Thursday (40% chance), possibly continuing into the afternoon to the north and west. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s -- possibly higher south, especially if the sun comes out in the afternoon.
Partly cloudy skies overnight with a slight (20%) chance of showers. Lows should be in the mid 40s.
A LOOK AHEAD
The weekend looks a bit unsettled toward the beginning, before a drier, cooler air mass moves in for Sunday. There will be a chance of showers on both Friday and Saturday (40%) with highs in the low 60s, though neither day should be a total washout. Sunday should be moisture free and cooler with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s. Dry and chilly weather is on tap for the Nationals home opener Sunday evening.
