Forecast: Nothing but sunshine
Warming trend begins
FORECAST IN DETAIL
In our recent interview with Washingtonian.com, I rated this area's forecasting difficulty a "5" on a 1-10 scale (with 10 indicating most difficult). Sure, we have our share of tough forecasting days here, but stretches like we have now are a walk in the park. A huge area of high pressure over eastern third of U.S. will give us three, maybe four consecutive days of sunshine, with ever increasing temperatures. Enjoy!
Today (Saturday): The day will lead off with widespread freezing temperatures, but sunshine will go to work and we'll be up above 50 by noon. Afternoon highs will peak near 60 with little wind to speak of. Confidence: High
Tonight: It won't be as cold as last night as a wind from the south (at around 10 mph) brings in some milder air. Still, some of the colder spots may dip in the mid-30s, with low 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow (Sunday): In light of the mild temperatures expected, tomorrow's the pick of the weekend. Like yesterday, we'll have lots of sun, but highs will be 5-8 degrees warmer, reaching the mid-to-upper 60s. Winds will be light. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Clear and continuing to trend milder. Lows will range from near 40 in the cooler suburbs to the upper 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
The weeks gets off to an outstanding start Monday, with more sunshine and highs headed up all the way to near 70. Partly cloudy overnight, with lows in the 40s (in the suburbs) to near 50 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
A few clouds may increase Tuesday ahead of a weak cold front, but we'll still have some sunshine and temperatures remain mild. High will again take aim at 70. Confidence: Medium
