The weather story today has been a continual gusty wind adding a bit of a chill to the early-spring air mass overhead. Otherwise, morning clouds are long gone, and mostly clear skies dominate making it appear rather nice even if it is a little cool. Highs are now reaching the mid-to-upper 50s and they will drop off quickly this evening, setting the stage for a pretty cold night.

Tonight: We stay mostly clear overnight as temperatures fall to around freezing in colder locations to the upper 30s downtown. Winds should begin subsiding, but will remain gusty enough to create an extra chill in the air.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Tuesday should be rather beautiful and a little warmer than today. Expect lots of sun, with increasing clouds late, and highs in the low-to-mid 60s. Winds will also be much lighter, so it will feel a good bit warmer.

Sunday Night Lights: Many residents in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina saw something in the sky last night... Did you? Around 9:45 p.m., hundreds of witnesses began calling National Weather Service (NWS) and emergency offices to report bright lights in the sky as well as thunderous booms. Late word is that the lights and noise were caused by a Russian rocket used to send a new crew to the International Space Station. Read some eyewitness accounts at
