The warm-up begins...

Photo of Dec 28 sky by Kevin Ambrose, Weatherbook.comThe highs for the past five days at Reagan National have been: 34, 33, 34, 32 and 36. BRRR. But now, the cold air is losing its grip and temperatures will rise above 40 today, and 50 is not out of the question.

The real warm stuff arrives Friday and Saturday with highs near or exceeding 60. The rain shower chances over the weekend (as shown Saturday and Sunday in the graphical forecast) are actually pretty low. We will have to watch the setup for early next week as cold, high pressure settles to our north and overrunning precipitation approaches from the Tennessee Valley. This may create a wintry mix scenario on Tuesday (after a cold front brings rain on Monday). Stay tuned.
