PM Update: Temperature Roller Coaster Continues

By Ian Livingston

Cooler tomorrow then warmer Wednesday

* Meteorological vs. Astronomical Spring | Moon's Effect on Hurricanes *

A strong breeze from the north and northwest has been little match for abundant sunshine and leftover warmth from this weekend. Though a little cooler than the past few days, today has been rather pleasant as highs reach into the mid-and-upper 60s. Winds that have gusted between 35-45 mph today will begin dying off, and by later tonight they will be much less of an issue.

Tonight: We start with mostly clear skies near sunset and trend cloudier by morning. Cooler air filtering into the area will provide for a chilly night with lows dropping to the mid 30s in the suburbs and low 40s downtown. Winds drop off considerably after sunset, but continue to blow around 10 mph from the north overnight.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Winds off the still-cold ocean will keep things fairly cloudy and cool. Look for highs to reach within a few degrees of 50 most places. By afternoon, a few scattered showers may move through as a warm front lifts to our north, but they should be rather light where they occur and mainly focused near the Maryland/Pennsylvania border and to the north.

What a difference a couple 100 miles make: Up in NYC for a short meeting and the temp was 42 degrees, overcast and drizzle. Nasty!

Stinker, yikes that does sound nasty. Here in DC we are having high winds though. Knocked my upstairs door wide open-- it may be broken!

Your full forecast link is broken. Got a space before the pound sign.
