FORECAST IN DETAIL
An energetic cold front will sweep through the region today, possibly triggering some showers and even a gusty thunderstorm. The threat of rain should gradually lessen this afternoon with brighter skies and welcoming warmth, although a few spots could be impacted by a storm or two up until evening, particularly to the north and northeast of town. By tomorrow and Tuesday, we'll completely dry out with lots of sunshine.
Today (Sunday): After any morning rain/drizzle, skies should brighten. Afternoon highs should range from the upper 60s to lower 70s though any extended sunshine could push the mercury up a few notches more. A round of showers and storms is possible in the afternoon hours, which could be strong -- but mainly north and northeast of the District. Winds will be out of the south and southwest at 10-15 mph with stronger gusts possible in any thunderstorms. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Any remaining t'storms will be winding down along with the sun and skies will quickly clear out behind them. Temperatures will drop quickly out of the 60s dropping to around 40 degrees for the overnight low with some upper 30s possible in the outer suburbs. Winds will be out of the west-northwest at 10-15 mph. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday): We won't be breaking any record highs but conditions look quite pleasant to begin the work week, if you don't mind a stiff breeze now and again. Skies will be bright though, and afternoon highs will warm into the low-to-mid 60s. Winds from the west will be strong, blowing at 15-25 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night:Winds will begin to ease overnight and we will be in for a very similar performance to tonight. Clear skies and temperatures right around 40 for overnight lows will be the norm across the region. Winds will become out of the northwest but weakening to around 5 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday, fair and mild conditions continue for us, and this time, without the wind. Sunny skies will greet you as you head out the door and temperatures will again warm to the mid-60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday brings with it a return to a more active pattern that will last the remainder of the work week. A cold front approaching from the west brings mostly cloudy conditions that will keep our afternoon temperatures from climbing out of the mid-to-upper 50s. We'll have a good chance for some rain as well as I'll call for a 60% chance for afternoon showers. Confidence: Medium
