CommuteCast: Mild with Scattered Showers

By Ian Livingston

Mostly sunny and seasonable on Wednesday

Gusty winds from the south, ahead of an approaching cold front, have allowed temperatures across the area to rise through the low 70s despite mostly cloudy skies during much of the day. Isolated to widely scattered showers are anticipated prior to the frontal passage, so the drive home may be a little wet for portions of the region, with the best chances north of the District.

Tonight: The cold front and chances for rain will exit the whole area by midnight, and will be followed by more in the way of gusty winds, this time from the north and northwest. Skies will clear overnight, helping temperatures drop into the low 40s north and west of D.C. and into the mid 40s elsewhere.

Tomorrow: Wednesday may be the pick of the work week, if you like sunshine and cool but pleasant temperatures. Expect highs to reach the upper 50s for most places, which is just short of the seasonal average for early April. Winds will slacken throughout the day after morning gusts to near 30 mph.
