Periods of rain that began late this morning have helped keep temperatures on the cool side this afternoon with temperatures mainly near 50 around the area. Though the rain has generally been light, some embedded moderate rain has traversed the area. The main batch of precipitation is already exiting, but a few more showers are possible into the evening hours. Chilly breezes from the northeast continue, so keep a jacket handy!

Through Tonight: The consistent rain of the afternoon will move off to the southeast and isolated to scattered showers will linger into the evening. Temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50 early fall to lows ranging from near 40 into the mid-40s. Winds ease a bit from today, blowing from the northeast around 5 to 10 mph.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): We return to fairly typical, maybe a little cool, April weather on Wednesday. Sunshine returns with just a few clouds here and there as highs rise into the low-and-mid 60s. Light winds should be little issue.

Well, it won't be the hurricane or duststorm that I "forecasted" last week, but I'm still not happy about having more cold and wet for my game tonight. Drat!

Brian, remind me what game/sport you're playing tonight? Definitely agreed.. it's a little bit icky out there. Messy end to the Nuclear Summit, I'm sure it will aide traffic flow (sarcasm!)

Wasn't it 90 degrees last Tuesday? Right now, it's 46.9 where I live. Sigh, just a drop of 15 degrees and we'd be seeing snow. Not that those white blooming dogwoods aren't nice, or anything.

Must be one of the earliest blooming seasons around here in a long time. I don't recall the azaleas budding this early in D.C. This is more North Carolina than Washington.

But it means the tree pollen season could end earlier than usual (except I'll be in Chicago next week and get to re-experience the pollen).

I noticed today that my azaleas and dogwood trees are blooming too, and I was thinking that it seems awfully early. Is it because of the warm temps we had last week? So glad that we are back to 60's and 70's!

The early blooms are definitely a result of the mild temps -- not just in the last couple weeks -- but also in March, which was quite warm.
