Forecast: Cool Today, But All Set to Warm
We hang on to late winter or early spring chilliness for 48 more hours before the weather pattern flips and mild air makes a strong push into the area. By Thursday and Friday high temperatures will warm as much as 25 degrees relative to today. Rain chances are low to non-existent until late Saturday.
Partly to mostly cloudy and cold. 52-56. We feel the heart of the current cool snap today, with temperatures 10 degrees colder than average. Partly cloudy skies in the morning will become mostly cloudy in the afternoon. Despite the increase in cloud cover, we should stay dry with most shower activity to our south.
Gradual clearing will occur overnight but it will be quite cold. Normally colder suburbs should experience a freeze, with upper 30s in urban areas inside the beltway.
Mostly sunny. Near 60. After a frosty start in many locations, temperatures will warm steadily. High temperatures may nearly double from their morning lows. While it will be noticeably milder compared to today, it will remain cool in the shade and you'll still want a jacket for a better part of the day.
Tuesday night will be clear and cool with lows from near freezing in the colder suburbs to near 40 downtown.
Keep reading for the forecast for the rest of the week.
A LOOK AHEAD
After a chilly start, beautiful, mild weather asserts itself Wednesday, with sunshine and temperatures rising into the mid to upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-high
Thursday and Friday are likely to bring gorgeous spring weather with warm highs in the mid 70s Thursday to near 80 on Friday. Confidence: Medium-high
More warm weather seems to be in store for Saturday, with highs in the 70s. However, clouds may increase in the afternoon and showers can not be ruled out. Confidence: Medium
Sunday may be showery as a weak upper level low pressure area spins through the area, with highs near 70. Confidence: Low-medium
