PM Update: After some sun, clouds return

By Ian Livingston

Mostly quiet rest of work week; What about the weekend?

Behind last night's storm, skies cleared a little quicker than anticipated today leaving us with a relatively nice afternoon. Before departing, the second wave of rain that arrived late yesterday brought many spots around or over 1" of rain, including 1.4" at National and 1.27" at Dulles. Today's early appearance of sunshine allowed highs to reach the upper 60s and low 70s. Don't get too used to the clearer skies as more clouds are on tap for tonight and tomorrow.

Through Tonight: Clouds fill back in the rest of the afternoon and evening as temperatures fall into the low 60s after sunset. Overnight, we're looking at mostly cloudy skies and lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Some drizzle is possible by sunrise.

Tomorrow (Thursday): A wind flow off the ocean should keep us at least somewhat cloudy on Thursday with the possibility of morning drizzle. As the day wears on, we may see more breaks in the clouds, perhaps leading to a partly cloudy afternoon. Highs should rise to around 60.
