FORECAST IN DETAIL
An awesome stretch of weather begins today and the timing couldn't be better: Cherry blossoms are reaching peak bloom, Easter egg hunts await, and the Nationals and D.C. United are about to open their home schedules. Get your sunscreen and, if you need it, allergy medicine ready to go. Spectacular spring conditions start to emerge today, and are here in full force (at times a little summery even) tomorrow through the weekend.
Today (Wednesday): Weather-wise, today should be the worst of the next several days -- and it still looks pretty nice. Some early-morning clouds quickly give way to mostly sunny skies with highs climbing to the upper 60s to near 70. Winds will be a nuisance, though, with morning gusts to near 25-30 mph from the northwest (that's windy enough to cost today a Nice Day Sun) before gradually weakening in the afternoon. Confidence: High
Tonight: A pleasant evening as winds decrease and temperatures drop through the 60s and eventually into the upper 50s. With light winds and mostly clear skies, overnight lows should end up in the low 40s in the coolest suburbs to the upper 40s to near 50 downtown. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): A nearly perfect spring day is in store with mostly sunny skies, light winds and highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: A partly to mostly clear and mild night for this time of year. Lows should be mainly in the 50s, with some upper 40s possible outside the Beltway. Confidence: High
Friday and Saturday are sure-fire winners with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs near 80 or in the low 80s. The mild days mean mild nights as well, with Friday night and Saturday night lows in the 50s. Confidence: High
On Sunday, a weak cool front may bring a little more in the way of clouds -- we'll call it partly sunny for now -- and maybe a passing shower or two. But for the most part, it looks like a fairly nice day for outdoor plans with highs in the 70s. Confidence: Medium
