FORECAST IN DETAIL
Ready or not, here comes the warm-up. (Can't imagine who isn't ready after yesterday's brutal cold.) Today, we'll watch the thermometer rise about 15 degrees higher than yesterday, but that only gets us to the low 40s. By Sunday, however, you might be smelling a hint of spring in the air. Will it last into next week?
Today (Friday): Thank goodness my hands and face won't hurt like yesterday. Still, it'll be a chilly morning with temperatures climbing out of the teens and low 20s. But sunny skies, light winds and afternoon highs in the low 40s isn't bad. As Dan Stillman mentioned yesterday, the sun feels even better from behind a window or windshield. Confidence: High
Tonight: Breezes should remain light. But temperatures dipping toward lows in the upper 20s to near 30 downtown and low-to-mid 20s in suburban spots like Gaithersburg and Manassas may still require a scarf? Skies should be clear through the night. Confidence: High
What is this "warmth" you speak of? How long will it last?...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Blue skies will still show brightly, and highs by afternoon will be in the 52-56 range. A light breeze from the south will spurt about in the afternoon, but shouldn't cause much of a chill. Instead, it'll continue to pump in milder and drier air (enough of the static electricity already!). Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy and not as chilly as tonight. Upper 30s downtown, mid-30s outside the Beltway. A light breeze from the southwest will be fairly constant overnight. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday: Last Sunday we got up to 61 at both National and Dulles. We could do it again this Sunday with a steady breeze from the southwest pumping mild air into the region. At the very least we should get to the upper 50s. Skies may have several periods of clouds but do not fret -- a slight chance of a stray shower is about as much as we'd see in the way precipitation. Confidence: Medium-High
A bit cooler on Sunday night as our pattern begins to shift back toward winter -- with lows in the low 30s, even downtown. Confidence: Medium
Continued quiet but cooler on Monday. Skies should be partly to mostly sunny and high temperatures will likely stay in the mid-to-upper 40s. Just a day after Sunday's hint of spring fever, you'll need your winter coat again. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday could feature more in the way of clouds -- we'll call it partly sunny for now. Yet temperatures should still reach the upper 40s to near 50. It looks like a chance of showers could enter the picture toward the latter part of the day. Confidence: Low-Medium
