The week ahead

Jason Samenow @ 12:43 AM

What a beautiful weekend! Yesterday's highs approached 60 in many areas with max temps of 57 and 58 at Reagan and Dulles airports, respectively.

Image of high temp forecastThis week we'll see a gradual cool down -- with each successive day being a bit colder than the previous one.

But we start off the week with a dandy. Expect partly sunny skies today, with southerly winds and highs in the mid to upper 50s.

Tomorrow, clouds will increase and a sprinkle can't be ruled out in the afternoon or evening. Highs in the low 50s.

On Wednesday, a cold front will move through the area, bringing a better chances of showers. Highs should once again be in the low 50s.

The forecast becomes tricky Wednesday night, as wave forms on the cold front which will have passed to the east. Depending on the strength and exact track of the wave, additional precipitation may develop as colder air begins streaming in. So there is a slight chance of wintry precipitation late Wednesday night into Thursday. Too early to speculate about details and it's possible that nothing will materialize. But we'll keep you informed each day with updates.

On Thursday, it will be cloudy and colder with a slight chance of lingering snow or flurries (30%). Highs should be in the mid to upper 30s (high may occur early in the morning).

Friday looks to be partly sunny, but chilly, with highs 30-35.
