Wow, what a Friday! We hit 80 degrees yesterday afternoon at Reagan National (one degree shy of the record), 70 at Dulles and BWI set a new record when they peaked at 81 degrees. Today will not be a record challenger with temperatures in the low to mid 60s, which is still above seasonable averages. Sunshine will be abundant but a steady northwesterly breeze will be something to take into account.

Overnight skies will be clear and temperatures will be cold. Nonetheless it will be a perfect night to view the Super Moon! The down and dirty is that the moon will be closer to the earth than it has been in nearly 20 years and will appear 14% bigger and 30% brighter. Before you get any ideas about reaching out and touching the orb of Swiss cheese, remember even at its closest point tonight, it will still be 211,000 miles from earth!

Sunday is looking calm with plenty of sun, less wind, but cooler temperatures in the low to mid 50s. High clouds will stream in for the afternoon ahead of our next front. Sunday night should remain dry for the start of spring at 7:21pm. Rain is likely to start off the work-week, with off and on rain throughout the work-week with a blast of cooler air possible. This is what we in the business call an unsettled pattern.

Have a great weekend!
