FORECAST IN DETAIL
Yesterday Jason said the upcoming weather was good news. It's a little chilly for my taste. Cooler than average temperatures look to stick with us through at least Wednesday. To make matters worse, an unwelcome (unless you're a kite fanatic) wind will enhance today's chill. And foul, wet weather is on the horizon as another potent low pressure system slides towards us on Tuesday and Wednesday. My advice: enjoy the sun while we have it today and tomorrow, and dress for mid-March, not mid-April.
Today (Sunday): We'll see a lot more sun than yesterday. We'll start off to a chilly morning and the afternoon sun will only take a slight edge off the cold. Expect afternoon temperatures only in the mid-50s with gusty winds from the north at 10-20 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: A very cold night is in store with this cool, dry airmass overhead. Many areas will experience a mid-spring freeze. Skies will be clear overnight and temperatures will drop accordingly. Overnight lows will range from the mid-20s in the cold spots to the low-to-mid 30s inside the beltway. Winds will be diminishing overnight, becoming calm towards morning. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through your mid-week...
Tomorrow (Monday): Sunny conditions continue, cheering you up on the way to work. On top of that, no more crazy winds! Still, temperatures will be slow to recover. High temps will only likely top out in the mid-to-upper 50s before clouds begin to move in during the late afternoon. Winds will be shifting to out of the south at 5-10 mph during the afternoon. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Chances for rain will be on the increase throughout the night as another low pressure system approaches from the southwest. We'll see cloudy skies and a 40% chance that it's raining by the time you wake up (at a reasonable hour) on Tuesday morning. As far as overnight lows go, expect temperatures bottoming out in the lower 40s. Winds continue out of the south at around 5 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday marks the first of several unsettled days for our area as the aforementioned low pressure system approaches and passes through the region. We'll see a fairly good chance for some moderate rain to fall throughout the day under gray skies. It will be a rather chilly rain too; with temperatures will be remaining in the low-to-mid 50s. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday stays wet. Showers should continue intermittently throughout the morning, and gradually diminish later in the day. By late in the day we could see a few breaks in the clouds. Temperatures will begin to rebound as well, nearing the upper 50s. Confidence: Medium
