Mild 'n Moist and the Moon

Jason Samenow @ 2:40 PM

Today and especially tomorrow will be unseasonably mild, with a chance of a few scattered showers. After a period of possibly steady rain during the latter part of Sunday into Monday, we transition toward somewhat cooler conditions that could include at least one day with highs only in the 30s come midweek.


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighScattered showers, warm. A warm front will lift north of the region today, putting us in even milder air (if that's possible). The best chance of rain will be early in the morning (60% chance) and north of town, with variably cloudy skies and just a 30% chance of showers during the afternoon. High temperatures should range from 64-68. Overnight, it should be partly to mostly cloudy, with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s (suburbs-city).


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighRecord warmth? Saturday's record high of 72 degrees at Reagan National could be challenged, particularly if we got a lot of sunshine. But due to the fact I expect more clouds than sun (and a 20% chance of an isolated shower), I think we'll end up being just shy of the record, with highs 67-71. Overnight, a cold front will move through before dawn bringing cloudy skies. Lows should range from 44-49 (suburbs-city).


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighRain, cooler. The cold front is likely to stall out in our vicinity as a wave of low pressure develops along it. As a result, we'll have cloudy skies with rain likely (60% chance) -- starting in the mid to late afternoon and continuing overnight. High temperatures will be cooler, ranging from 50-55.

Full Moon
