Forecast: Sunday and Monday sunshine
Showers probably return Tuesday
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Much nicer weather is most welcome today. While we won't see quite the warmth that we saw late last week, mid-60s this time of year puts us right where we should be. I doubt you hear anyone running 26.2 this morning complaining about it. Fair weather stays with us to start out the work week but uncertainty looms as a coastal system may dampen our spirits Tuesday and into Wednesday.
Today (Sunday): This is more like it. We'll enjoy a much nicer second half of the weekend today as high pressure builds in behind a cold front. For us, this means mostly sunny skies and cooler, but comfortable, temperatures. Afternoon highs will top out in the low-to-mid 60s. A light northerly breeze will add a slight chill to the air so you may want to carry around a light jacket if you'll be out and about. Confidence: High
Tonight: Clear skies overnight combining with a drier atmosphere spells chilly conditions. Lows should be right around 40 inside the Beltway, with the cooler suburbs in the mid-30s. We shouldn't see any frost concerns as dewpoints will remain above freezing through the night. Winds overnight will dwindle to near calm. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday):More of the same is in the forecast tomorrow with mid-60s and sunny skies. By evening though, we should begin to see the approach of our next weather-maker in the form of some increasing high cloudiness. Winds will turn easterly, then southeasterly, but remain fairly light at less than 10 mph. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Clouds continue to build overnight. We'll likely stay dry until after midnight, with rain chances arriving in time for Tuesday's a.m. commute -- bummer. Overnight lows will be in the mid-to-upper 40s. Winds light and variable. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday we'll likely see occasional showers. Though rain chances are around 70%, most of it should be scattered and light, except for the possibility of some moderate rain during the late morning. With overcast skies, and the showers around, highs will be kept in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Showers may continue overnight, with lows around 50. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday gets tricky. I'm leaning towards a nicer solution at the moment We should see any showers taper off during the morning hours with clearing skies during the afternoon. However, there's a chance that a second wave of low pressure will develop to our southwest and keep rain in the forecast a bit longer. Either way, highs should be in the vicinity of the lower 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
