Forecast: Rain to End and Splendid Weather Awaits
Our extended rain event will come to an end today and tonight leading to high pressure and drier weather for the remainder of the week. This weekend, however, we will see a cold front approach which may be accompanied by some unsettled weather. Let's hope the impact is minimal. The nice week/rainy weekend pattern is one us Washingtonians have seen many times before, especially during spring.
Cloudy, cool. Low 60s. Today will be a transition day. We will hold on to much of the cloud cover and easterly flow, but rain chances diminish greatly. Look for a 30% chance of some drizzle or light rain as the upper level low associated with Sunday and Monday's rain moves off to the southeast. Skies will be cloudy with highs in the lower 60s.
Overnight, clouds will remain, but it will be dry with mild overnight low temperatures in the low 50s.
Overnight, there will be some clouds associated with a weak frontal passage, but no rain. Lows will only dip to the low 50s.
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend. Also, check in later this morning to read Andrew Freedman's climate change column
A LOOK AHEAD
Thursday and Friday , much like last week, look excellent, if not quite as warm. Look for abundant sunshine with highs both days in the mid 70s. Confidence: Medium-high
Saturday could start off promising, but an approaching front may be accompanied by some showers and thunderstorms (50%) in the afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s. Confidence: Medium
Sunday looks like it could be quite salvageable with a chance of morning showers yielding to clearing skies and afternoon temperatures around 70. Confidence: Medium
