Forecast: Unsettled Until Sunday
Over the next couple of days, you may hear more about the rain than you actually see and feel it. That's because it's most likely to occur and fall heavily tonight while you're sleeping and may not happen tomorrow when you're awake. We'll be right on the edge of a batch of rain tomorrow -- with the greatest rainfall chances southeast of the beltway and pretty good odds of staying dry northwest. Everybody dries out Sunday.
Rain mainly at night, mid to upper 60s. The morning may well be murky (overcast, drizzle, fog) but some sun could emerge through the clouds, especially in the afternoon. After a fairly raw start in the 40s this morning, southerly winds should eventually pump warm 60s into the metro area by late in the afternoon.
Into the overnight hours, rain and possible thunder move in. This rain may be heavy, with upwards of 1" possible. Low temperatures will only drop into the upper 50s.
Fifty-fifty chance of rain. Low 60s. The big question is the timing of a slow-moving cold front moving through the region Saturday. If it's able to push through the metro area early enough, a lot of the rain may stay to our south and east. But if the front moves more slowly and doesn't clear out until later in the day, another slug of rain may trudge through the region -- especially south of town during the afternoon.
After dinnertime, any rain should be over. Temperatures will drop slowly into the mid 40s, with clearing overnight.
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week. Think drier... warmer? See UnitedCast for the forecast for Saturday's D.C. United home opener.
Mostly sunny, lower 60s. Finally we get to see some sun again. Slowly drying out. Light northerly breezes helping out. We'll be able to get out and about without an umbrella for the first time in days. It will feel pretty decent in the sun, a sense of warmth aided by temperatures above 60. woohoo!
Overnight, clouds. Again! Darn those (light) easterly winds. Well, at least there is no rain expected. Temperatures will hold in the middle to upper 40s.
A LOOK AHEAD
We appear to dodge precipitation on Monday though it will stay cloudy with a high around 60.
Cloudy skies overnight Monday may hold into part of Tuesday with spotty afternoon sunshine possibly warming us into the mid 60s.
