CommuteCast: Springtime Weather at its Best

By Ian Livingston

Warming trend continues tomorrow

A frosty start to the day in numerous locations has transitioned into a beautiful springtime afternoon across the entire region. Highs have reached the mid to upper 60s under crystal clear skies and light winds.

Tonight: Another chilly one is in store, but it will not be as cold as last night, and no widespread frost or freeze is expected in the area. Temperatures will fall into the mid 30s in the normally colder suburbs, and into the low or mid 40s in the District. Some isolated areas of frost well west or north of the city are possible, so one more night of caution with tender outdoor plants might be wise.

Tomorrow: Thursday will be sunny and spectacular. Low humidity and warm temperatures -- in the mid 70s -- will be accompanied by light winds out of the northwest. If you can't skip out on work or school, you should at least do yourself a favor and spend lunchtime outdoors!
