CommuteCast: Brightening Skies in Some Places

By Ian Livingston

Sun returns Wednesday, a few p.m. showers possible

Morning rain gave way to cloudy skies across most of the region, after some additional early afternoon showers moved through north of D.C. Today's rainfall of .58" at National Airport (through 3 p.m.) moved D.C. into 4th place in the category of all-time wettest Mays, with a current monthly total of 9.21".

Rest of afternoon: Cool temperatures will continue as many locations struggle to pass 60 degrees, even with brightening skies and some breaks in the clouds, especially south of town.

Tonight: Clouds will hang tough in the area overnight, with only a few breaks mixed in, and temperatures will once again be fairly chilly for this time of year. Expect lows in the mid 40s for the suburbs and into the upper 40s in D.C.

Tomorrow: Wednesday will start off partly sunny, but by afternoon clouds will once again increase as a small upper-level disturbance moves through. There is a chance (about 40%) of a few showers during the afternoon and early evening. Temperatures will once again struggle to rise very high during the day, but it will be warmer than today as highs hit the upper 60s in most locations.
