PM Update: Freezing cold tonight, cool weekend
Next chance of rain arrives Sunday p.m.
To think, yesterday evening we were enjoying temperatures in the low 70s dropping into the 60s, before the rain arrived last night and left this morning. A very different story this evening, as readings drop into the 30s after spending most of the day in the 40s. Winds that gusted near 30 mph today, sending wind chills into the 30s, are weakening. Still, cool weather is here to stay through this opening Cherry Blossom Festival weekend.
Through Tonight: We'll see clearing skies and diminishing winds (though still somewhat breezy, around 10-15 mph from the north) through evening as temperatures drop into the chilly 30s. Overnight, winds settle to around 10 mph, and under mostly clear skies lows bottom near freezing downtown (would be DCA's first freeze this month) and in the mid-to-upper 20s across the burbs.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Mostly sunny skies help temperatures rebound from their near-and-below-freezing start. But they can only go so high after starting so low -- highs near 50 or in the low 50s should do it. Winds should be light, around 5-10 mph. An area of high clouds may move in later in the afternoon or toward evening.
