Tax Day Nor'easter To Continue Weekend Soaking
Rain to persist through the afternoon, winds to increase

Jason Samenow @ 1:00 PM

** Wind Advisory in Effect until 2am Tuesday **

Today's weather, courtesy of a strengthening spring Nor'easter, will cooperate for tax preparation procrastinators who need to finish the job. Rain, wind and unseasonably cold conditions will offer little motivation to be outside.


Forecast Confidence: HighRain and wind. Steady,wind-swept rain, heavy at times (especially in DC and points east) will continue through around noon. By mid afternoon, the rain will begin to decrease in coverage and intensity from southwest to northeast -- but scattered showers will still be around. Winds will gradually increase from 10-20mph this morning to 15-25mph by late this afternoon with higher gusts. High temperatures will be near 50.

Tonight, it will be variably cloudy, windy and cold. Some widely scattered showers remain possible which may even mix with snow towards morning well north and west of DC. Lows will range from 34-39 (suburbs-city) with winds gusting as high as 30-40mph.

Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighVariably cloudy and blustery. As the Nor'easter winds up over New England, strong northwest winds will blow from 20 to 30mph and gust from 30-45mph. Skies should be mostly cloudy and an isolated shower is possible. High temperatures will be in the low 50s.

Rainfall Totals

So far, rainfall totals have generally been between 1.5 to 2 inches. By the time most of the rain tapers off late this afternoon, totals are likely to be in the 1.5-2.5" range, with some 3" totals. You can track rainfall totals by clicking on observing stations in WJLA's WeatherBug Network or by checking out the National Weather Service official observing station reports.
