Forecast: Showery Saturday
Slow clearing late Sunday
Intermittent showers will continue pivoting through the metro region into Sunday. During the second half of Sunday, the persistent cloud cover may finally break and some sunshine may break out, especially to the south. But it won't probably be until Monday that appreciable sunshine returns to the entire region and the rain threat evaporates.
Occasional showers, humid. Mid 70s. An upper level low pressure system to the southwest will continue to generate bands of showers (70% chance) that will pivot through the region from southeast to northwest, especially during the afternoon. It won't rain all the time, with breaks between bands (like yesterday) when the skies brighten. During the afternoon, there may be enough instability for a couple thunderstorms. Temperatures should reach the mid 70s.
Scattered showers will likely (60% chance) continue well into the evening but should decrease in coverage and intensity after midnight. Lows will drop into the low-to-mid 60s.
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week. See our new Weather Wall for the ultimate overview of D.C. area current conditions.
Mostly cloudy. Mid-to-upper 70s. As the upper low lifts north of the region and weakens, there could be a few breaks in the cloud cover -- particularly south of the region. But enough instability will linger that a few showers and/or thundershowers may develop (50% chance). High temperatures should warm into the mid-to-upper 70s.
Overnight, skies should partially clear, with lows near 60 in the suburbs and mid 60s downtown.
Nice, dry weather returns just in time for the work week. Both Monday and Tuesday should be partly to mostly sunny with highs near 80. Confidence: Medium-High
