PM Update: Clouds Remain; A Chance of Rain?

By Ian Livingston

Variably cloudy and warm on Thursday

Radar: Latest regional radar loop shows movement of precipitation over past two hours. Powered by HAMweather. Refresh page to update. Click here to see radar bigger. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Though the area has seen plenty of cloudiness today, temperatures have warmed up into the mid 60s just about everywhere, and these readings are a few degrees above average this time of year. The rain shield associated with low pressure off the coast will slowly attempt to back west this afternoon and evening, and may provide some light rain (especially from D.C. and to the east) this evening and overnight.

Tonight: Clouds stick around all night and there will be a risk of light rain or drizzle, especially from D.C. to the east. Look for lows to drop to around 50 in the suburbs to the low 50s in the city. Winds will blow from the north around 10 mph. Rainfall amounts should be light where it falls.

Tomorrow: Thursday will feature more clouds across the area, but some breaks of sun are possible during the day. A slight risk of a shower or two will be present from D.C. and to the east as low pressure continues to hang around just offshore. Temperatures will once again rise above average, this time into the mid or upper 60s. A north wind will continue around 10 mph.
