FORECAST IN DETAIL
Less humid air arrives behind the cold front that pushed through the region last night. However, as it stalls just to our south, it will keep the slightest chance for some showers in the forecast due to several weak waves of low pressure developing along it. For the most part though, we'll remain rain-free and the next several days will feature comfortably warm air before we finally get close to breaking the 90 degree mark later this week.
Today (Sunday): Isolated overnight showers and t'storms will be working their way out of the area this morning, leaving us with another fairly nice day in their wake. By breakfast time, we should be high and dry around the District, while the Eastern Shore may still be seeing some lingering showers. In the afternoon, we should have a mix of clouds and sun with highs into the mid-80s. By evening, the front may drift back northward and produce a few more widely scattered showers, likely south of the District. Winds will become out of the northwest at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Other than a widely scattered shower mainly south of the metro region in the evening, skies will be partly cloudy overnight with low temperatures in the mid 60s, cooler in the west where clouds may exit earlier. Expect light winds to blow from the west-northwest. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Monday): Tomorrow's forecast is a bit trickier due to proximity of a weak disturbance moving along the front stalled to our south. I'll call for a small chance for an afternoon/evening shower (20%), but otherwise expect partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the lower 80s. Winds will be variable early, becoming more out of the west towards evening. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Showers will still be within the realm of possibility overnight but for the most part the area will remain rain-free. Skies will begin to clear towards morning and overnight lows will be in the mid-to-upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Unseasonably dry air returns to the region Tuesday. High pressure building in will provide us with the nicest day of this week. Skies will be mostly sunny and afternoon highs will be quite comfortable in the mid-80s. Clear skies continue overnight, with lows in the mid-60s. (near 60 in the cooler suburbs). Confidence: High
Wednesday will begin to feel more like summertime around here. Southwesterly flow will begin to pump more moisture and higher humidity into the area along with increasing warmth. Expect sunny, hazy skies during the day and temperatures climbing into the upper 80s. Confidence: Medium-High
