CommuteCast: Clouds Return to Region

By Ian Livingston

Transition back to unsettled weather Thursday

Today was another welcome respite for weather-weary residents, especially those continuing to clean up from flood damage following recent rain across the area. Even with increasing clouds throughout the day, temperatures have managed to climb into the low and mid 70s as southerly winds help pump in warmer air.

Tonight: Clouds will stick around all night as temperatures fall to around 60 degrees in Washington and the upper 50s in the suburbs. Showers may pass through the region overnight, but little rain is expected across the area, and most of the activity should stay to the north.

Tomorrow: After a risk of very light early morning showers, Thursday will feature more clouds and a growing chance of more numerous showers by the afternoon or evening. Highs will reach the low to mid 70s. The cold front responsible for tomorrow's shower chances will stall in or near the area, leading to more in the way of rain for Thursday night into Friday.

I know this might be asking for too much detail, but what does "early morning" mean? I am planning on going birdwatching tomorrow morning from around 6:30-9:30. Will I get lightly rained upon?

Laura -- Not sure if this is too late for you now, but I wouldn't worry too much about rain during your time frame. Sure, a sprinkle or light shower isn't out of the question. But that would be about it, and the risk of even that is rather low.
