Forecast: More Like March than May

By Matt Ross

Like last week, after some rain over the weekend spilling into Monday, we will see a mostly dry remainder of the work week. However, it will be quite a bit chillier to start, thanks to a pattern not unlike the quick-hitting cold shots we had much of the past winter. But just as in the winter, the cold will be short-lived and temperatures will rebound rather quickly later in the week.


A.M. showers, chilly. Upper 50s. We will start off the day with a 30% chance of showers as a disturbance crosses the region. Shower chances diminish in the afternoon, and we may even see a bit of sun, but temperatures will be cool with gusty winds out of the northwest. Afternoon highs will be about 10 degrees below normal in the upper 50s.

Overnight it will be partly cloudy and quite cold with lows ranging from the mid 30s to the low 40s. Some scattered frost is possible in the outlying suburbs.


Sunny, breezy. Near 60. Wednesday will be sunny, but quite cool to close out April. A northwesterly breeze will persist with afternoon high temperatures only around the 60-degree mark.

Overnight will be mostly clear and a bit warmer. Lows will drop to the low to mid 40s.

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend. See NatCast for tonight's chilly forecast for Nationals Park. Check back later this morning for an inside look at the Suffolk tornado.


Thursday and Friday , like last week, look like the best days of the week. It should be partly to mostly sunny both days with highs in the low to mid 70s on Thursday (could be a bit cooler if a front stalls near the D.C. region) increasing to the mid to upper 70s on Friday. Confidence: Medium

On Saturday a weak frontal passage may (50% chance) spawn some rain showers with highs in the mid to upper 70s, falling late. Confidence: Medium

Some showers may linger Sunday but otherwise expect clearing and cooler conditions with highs in the upper 60s. Confidence: Medium
