PM Update: Winter Departs on Chilly Note
Spring arrives Friday, but temperatures stay cold
The warmth of yesterday was replaced by clouds, some light rain and cooling temperatures today. Highs reached the mid-to-upper 50s this morning prior to the rain and cold front passage. Rainfall totals have been light, generally a few hundredths of an inch, and most places will just be cloudy the rest of the day as temperatures continue falling through the 40s. East and south of D.C., showers may continue for the next hour or two.
Tomorrow (Friday): The sun returns Friday, but cold temperatures remain. Some cloudiness may still be around in the morning before skies trend mostly sunny during the day. Highs should only reach the mid-to-upper 40s, or about 10 degrees below normal for the date.

Spring! Though we are already a few weeks into meteorological spring, astronomical spring officially arrives tomorrow morning at 7:44 a.m. local time. March 17 was the first day we crossed over the 12 hours of daylight boundary (we're currently gaining about 2 ½ minutes of light a day) and we will continue to see more and more daylight through June 21 when summer arrives.
