PM Update: Rain to End Brief Warm-up
For the first time since Nov. 16, Reagan National Airport touched 50 degrees this afternoon. Winds from the south boosted highs to 50 or above at most places in the metro area. The price we pay for the warmth is rain -- already advancing into the western and northern suburbs -- late this afternoon and tonight, followed by blustery conditions tomorrow.
Tonight: Incoming rain showers mean a wet commute for many. The steadier rain should continue until just after midnight, with just a slight chance of scattered showers through dawn. Lows drop down to 35-40 (suburbs-city), warm enough to keep the precipitation all liquid.
Tomorrow: Drier and colder air will settle in behind tonight's cold front. Expect variably cloudy skies and brisk conditions with afternoon highs only in the mid 40s. Winds from the west will blow at 10-20 mph with higher gusts.
