PM Update: Chilly with Some Frost Overnight
Beautiful Tuesday as 70s return to the area
Frost Advisory for Fauquier, Frederick and Loudoun counties from 3 a.m. till 9 a.m. Tuesday
If you did not glance at the calendar today, you may have thought it was early April based on the cool temperatures and brisk northerly breeze. The front that brought us the cool weather slowed down to our east just enough to leave some residual cloudiness across the area today. Temperatures that rose mostly into the low 60s will fall off quite nicely as we head through the evening and overnight. Fortunately, so will the winds.
Tonight: Clear skies lead to a cold one (for mid-May) tonight. Lows should range from the mid-30s in the coldest suburbs to the mid-40s in D.C. -- a few record lows may be tested. Some patchy frost is possible in the coldest locations well north and west of D.C.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Payback for the cool weather comes tomorrow in the form of a gorgeous day. After a chilly morning, temperatures will quickly rise -- more than 30 degrees in spots -- to highs mostly in the lower 70s. Just a few passing clouds will float by in an otherwise sunny sky. Winds will be light.
Another Rainy May: 5.28" of rain has fallen at National Airport this May, already well past the normal monthly total of 3.82". 11 days this month have recorded more than a trace of rain, and 6 have had more than .50". Compared to last year's record breaker that brought 10.66", this May might be considered dry! Other local stations are also running quite wet with 4.51" at Dulles and 4.49" at BWI. How's your backyard faring this month?
