By Ian Livingston

More warm weather expected Wednesday

After all the rain and bad weather of recent, today has been a welcome and beautiful break! Highs are now topping out in the low 70s, just about everywhere, and light winds out of the northeast are the only reminder of the long-lived storm that ended yesterday.

Tonight: Clear and cool conditions will rule the night. Temperatures will range from the mid and upper 40s in the suburbs to right around 50 degrees in Washington. Some patchy fog may form by morning as temperatures cool to near the dew point -- the area remains quite soggy from the last few days.

Tomorrow: Our short-lived spell of nicer weather will continue tomorrow, even as clouds begin to increase again by late in the day. Temperatures should reach the mid and upper 70s on a warm southerly wind that will blow between 10-15 mph by afternoon.

Unfortunately it's only a two-day respite. Then more rain.
