PM Update: Showers Fail to Produce Much Rain

By Ian Livingston

Some a.m. fog, breaks of sun and warmer Thursday

* March in Review | Cherry Blossoms: Near Peak Photos and more *

Lots of clouds produced not much precipitation today, though some light showers are still possible this afternoon. One thing the gray skies did do was help to keep temperatures in the mid-and-upper 50s across the area. We may end up seeing some breaks in the clouds this evening, but those breaks won't last forever.

Tonight: Look for variably cloudy skies overnight as temperatures fall to the low-and-mid 40s. With a fair amount of low-level moisture around, some fog may form around the area. Winds will be light and variable.

Tomorrow (Thursday): We start the morning with areas of fog, but should see some sunshine during the day before clouds thicken back up late. Highs look to reach the mid 60s most places prior to a chance of rain arriving by late in the evening. Winds should again be light and variable.

More Local Radars: Weather Underground has added several additional local radars to their lineup. TDWR "High Definition" radars began going online in the 1990s at and near major airports in the country to help prevent airline accidents caused by wind shear. Local TDWR sites now available to the public include Washington National, Andrews Air Force Base, Baltimore Washington Airport and Dulles Airport. Read more about TDWR radars in a post by Weather Underground's Jeff Masters last December.

Despite a little more rain this evening, we're still under the predicted system total of 0.5--0.75". There seems to be more raw weather in next week's forecast.
