PM Update: Temperatures Trending "Toastier"
60 degrees possible Thursday; Weekend wintry mix?
Temperatures near average for this time of year and light winds made today a winner in the minds of those waiting for winter to end. This afternoon, highs have reached up to right around 50 across most of the area while skies have been generally cloud free. Despite a chilly night ahead, milder conditions have settled in for now.
Tonight: Partly to mostly clear skies will allow temperatures to fall below freezing across much of the area overnight. Look for lows in the upper 20s for the suburbs to right around freezing downtown. Winds will be light from the south.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Pleasant conditions persist Thursday as temperatures rise even higher than today. Under partly cloudy skies, highs should range from 55-60, with a lucky spot or two possibly climbing into the low 60s. Winds will remain light and from the south.

Spring is Coming: National Airport's average high temperature rises to 50 degrees tomorrow for the first time since early December. Dulles lags behind a bit, with the average high reaching 50 on the first day of meteorological spring, March 1. By the end of next month, both stations normally see highs topping 60. Thinking about warmth to come? Or will you miss the dry and cold winds of winter 08/09?
