Forecast: Rain to Break Briefly
More heavy rain late Sunday
The window for nice weather this weekend keeps getting narrower. Gloomy and damp conditions may not let go until mid afternoon today. At that time, mercifully, we should begin a 24-hour period with no rain. But late tomorrow afternoon, another round of rain returns that has the potential to bring more flooding to water-logged Washington Sunday night and Monday.
Light a.m. rain. Slow p.m. clearing. Near 60. Patchy light rain is likely in the morning (60% chance). While it shouldn't amount to a whole lot, it won't be particularly pleasant outside with cool temperatures and a raw north wind at 10-15 mph. Skies will gradually brighten and we may (60% chance) have some sunshine by mid to (more likely) late afternoon. 60 may be the best we can do, although spots to the southwest where there's more sun may reach 65-70.
Partly cloudy and dry overnight, with lows 45-50.
Keep reading for the forecast for Sunday into early next week. Also, be sure to check out NatCast.
Rain developing late in the afternoon. Near 65. Plan your outdoor activities for the morning. Sunshine will likely show itself when you wake up. Gradually, cloud cover will begin to increase during the late morning and early afternoon. Rain will likely approach from the west just a couple hours later. By 6 p.m. or so, everyone should be in on the rain. Temperatures may warm into the mid 60s before the clouds and rain lower them to near 60.
Overnight, rain is likely, and it may be heavy at times. One to two inches of rain is possible by morning with areas of flooding a strong possibility. Lows drop to 50-55.
A LOOK AHEAD
A raw, wind-swept rain is likely Monday, with the heaviest rain in the morning. The rain may begin to let up a bit during the afternoon, but this storm will be a slow mover -- so light rain and drizzle may persist through the evening. High temperatures may only reach the high 50s. Confidence: Medium
On Tuesday, it's a pretty good bet we'll dry out and some sunshine will return. High temperatures should be near 70. Confidence: Medium-High
