Something pretty odd for this April happened today -- the sun came out from hiding. With 10 of 16 days this month being characterized as overcast at National Airport, we'll take it. Though morning lows started in the chilly upper 30s in some places, this afternoon brought near-seasonal warmth to the area with highs topping out in the low-to-mid 60s. Wonderfully clear skies continue through tomorrow and into the beginning of the weekend!

Tonight: Temperatures will be similar to last night tonight, but perhaps a tad cooler. Lows in the upper 30s and low 40s will do it for most folks, though some suburbs can expect to dip into the mid-30s. Winds will range from calm to light and variable.

Tomorrow (Friday): The only weather difficulty you may have on Friday is finding many clouds in the sky. Lots of sunshine will wrap up the work week along with highs in the low 70s. If you have an opportunity to start the weekend early, you may just want to do so. If not, be sure to spend at least some time outdoors.

Cyclone Bijli: Nearly one year to the day of Cyclone Nargis' hit on Myanmar, another storm system is churning toward the country. Tropical Cyclone Bijli is gaining strength in the Bay of Bengal today and is expected to hit Myanmar this weekend. While the storm will likely be much weaker as far as winds go, heavy rains are likely to cause widespread and serious flooding.
