PM Update: Warm through tomorrow
Rain arrives late Thursday into Friday, then cooler
Sunshine returned in a big way today, but gusty winds from the west and northwest have yet to subside, so shady spots have still felt a bit chilled. Other than the wind, it's hard to complain too much about a day like this as highs rise into the mid-60s across the area. Enjoy the rest of the today and tomorrow, because we're back into an unsettled and cooler period afterward.
Through Tonight: Winds that have been gusty since yesterday will subside near and after sunset. Skies trend a bit cloudier through the night, which should help keep temperatures up a bit. Lows range from near 40 in the colder spots to the upper 40s in the warmer.
Tomorrow (Thursday): There could be a fair amount of clouds around, but probably not enough to keep temperatures from soaring back to well above average. Periods of partly sunny skies should be enough to boost highs to the upper 60s or near 70. Any rain should hold off until evening or beyond, but you may want to have an umbrella for the trip home just in case.
Freeze-less March? So far, National Airport has yet to hit freezing this month. If we manage to stay above that mark through the coming cool period, it would be the first time (since the 1940s) that DCA has not recorded freezing or below temperatures during the month. The closest thus far is 1973, when the first day of the month dipped to 31 and the rest stayed above 32.
