CommuteCast: Rain Begins Moving Out

By Ian Livingston

Cool on Tuesday, with a risk of showers

After a brief break in the rain early this afternoon, moderate to occasionally heavy showers associated with the cold front have moved into the area. The most intense rain should be ending across the area over the next hour or two, and some lighter showers are possible after the main batch. Drivers should use caution as some ponding on roads is possible.

Tonight: Shower chances diminish this evening as cooler air filters in overnight. Temperatures will fall to the chilly (for late April) mid 40s in the city, with a few lower 40s in the normally colder suburbs.

Tomorrow: Cool air will settle into the area as temperatures struggle to get above the upper 50s in most locations -- D.C. and southeast may get to the low 60s. In addition, an upper level disturbance will pass over the region, bringing a chance of some showers, mainly in the morning. By afternoon, skies should begin to clear. Daytime winds -- from the northwest at 15-20 mph, with some higher gusts -- should slacken tomorrow night as lows dip to the rather chilly low 40s downtown and mid to upper 30s in the suburbs.
