Forecast: Winter Weather Briefly Returns
The next three days will provide quite a contrast compared to the last three days. Instead of 70s and 80s, high temperatures will likely be stuck in the 50s due to a big dip in the jet stream over the East Coast. Today, there is even the possibility of some sleet mixing with afternoon showers.
Mostly cloudy, p.m showers and sleet. 54-58. We may have some sunshine in the morning, but considerable cloud cover will develop during the afternoon. Scattered rain showers are likely (60% chance) and some of the showers could contain some sleet, especially north and west of the beltway. With temperatures way above freezing, no sleet will accumulate or cause any iciness. Highs will be in the mid 50s, but will drop into the 40s when showers pass by.
Some widely scattered showers may continue into the evening hours, with partly cloudy skies after midnight. Lows should range from the mid 30s in the colder suburbs to near 40 downtown.

Partly to mostly cloudy and cool. 51-55. Monday may give us our coolest day until some time next fall -- November perhaps? Under partly to mostly cloudy skies, temperatures will only rise into the low to mid 50s.
Partly to mostly cloudy overnight, with chilly lows from near freezing in the colder suburbs to the mid to upper 30s inside the beltway.
A LOOK AHEAD
High pressure will begin to build in from the west Tuesday, resulting in increased sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures. Highs will likely near 60 -- a bit below average, but an improvement from Sunday and Monday. Confidence: Medium-high
Wednesday will feel like spring again. We should have lots of sunshine, with temperatures rising into the mid 60s. Confidence: Medium-high
