PM Update: 'Perfect' Spring Weather Grips Area
Sunny Saturday; Showers possible late Sunday?
If I was going to deem a calm-weather day "perfect" (I'm going a step further than Camden's "near-perfect"), this might be it. Wall-to-wall sunshine greeted those who were able to get outside along with temperatures rising up into the low 70s this afternoon. Readings will fall back through the mighty-pleasant 60s this evening as we head toward sunset. I suggest starting the weekend off right by spending some time outdoors!
Tonight: Temperatures drop off quickly overnight thanks to clear skies and low humidity, but we'll stay warmer than last night. Lows should range from near 40 in the chillier suburbs to the mid 40s downtown.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Downsloping westerly winds will crank up the warmth another notch or two tomorrow helping to create one of the warmest days of the year so far. Under tons of sun, watch for highs to reach the mid-to-upper 70s.

Drought? April has been rather wet, so does the drought continue? For now, the experts say it does (NOTE: the new update does not capture this week's rain). On the year, National and Dulles airports are running 3.29" and 3.40" behind normal, respectively. In April, many locations are currently above normal rainfall, with National recording 2.52" of rain (91% of normal for the entire month) and Dulles coming in with 2.13" (66% of normal for the entire month). With more rain on the way, both stations have a good shot of a normal or better month of rain.
