PM Update: Drying out, but clouds slow to depart

By Ian Livingston

Wed. through Saturday looking delightful

* D.C.'s winter was cold, but the globe stayed toasty *
* River flood warnings | Coastal flood warnings *

Who is ready for some sunshine to return? I know I am. While we have none today, and maybe won't see much tomorrow, it is poised to return and when it does it will be sweet! Just a bit of rain moved through midday, otherwise it has been another cloudy and cool one around here. Afternoon readings in the upper 40s and low 50s are about 5 degrees below the quickly rising average high temperature for the date.

Through Tonight: Though the rain is pretty much done, a scattered shower or some drizzle is possible the rest of the afternoon and into the night. Temperatures settle within a few degrees of 40 across the area. Winds stay breezy.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): We fully ditch the rain chances on Tuesday. Clouds, however, won't be in a major rush to leave. Clearing should begin late in the day, but perhaps not 'til around sunset. Temperatures begin to warm back up a bit with highs probably hitting the mid-50s most spots.

Flood waters receding: Around here, only minor to moderate flooding was observed over the weekend and into today, but some places west and east saw more in the way of high water. All the local waterways levels have peaked and are now dropping. Flickr member brownpau caught some of the flooding at the Georgetown Waterfront this morning.

Still waiting for this MESS to vacate the area!

Haven't noticed the change to DST much yet...except at 6:30 AM!
