FORECAST IN DETAIL
The weather is forecast to be up and down during the coming days. Look for milder weather today (highs near 70 in spots) with scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. And then we can expect a variably cloudy tomorrow with scattered light showers and temperatures about 10 degrees cooler. Thursday should be so-so (warmer, more sun), but the big story is the spectacular weekend weather that follows. Yes, we're talking the first 80s of 2009 for Washington D.C. with plenty of sunshine.
Today (Tuesday): Look for periods of both clouds and sunshine today with warmer temperatures (highs in the upper 60s) and then a 40% chance of late-afternoon showers and thunderstorms. We could see an additional .1" to .2" of rainfall. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Showers and thunderstorms appear most likely during the evening hours (60% chance) with lessening chances toward and beyond midnight. We could see some heavy downpours around thunderstorms, but otherwise look for another .1" to .25" of rain. Temperatures should cool back down into the 40s. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): A large upper level low pressure will be passing over and north of the area and this will trigger intermittent cloud cover with light showers possible (30% chance). Winds will get breezy from the west and northwest at about 15-25 mph. Temperatures should also be cooler (only around 60). Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Cloudy and colder with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Confidence: Medium
Thursday brings back the sunshine with slightly warmer temperatures (low-to-mid 60s). Breezy conditions persist, though, at about 10-20 mph. Confidence: Medium
Friday is considered the weekend by some and the weather will agree this week with temperatures bouncing strongly up into the middle 70s after morning lows in the 40s, thanks to lots of sunshine. Confidence: Medium
The weekend is promising fantastic weather with highs in the low 80s and lows in the 50s and 60s. Sunshine will be more frequent than a few scattered clouds, and forecaster confidence is actually looking good for this early in the week. And with all the rain we have received thus far this week, no one need feel guilty about the beautiful dry weather this coming weekend. Confidence: Medium
