The high hit at least 70 degrees at all three major local airports on Sunday. Dulles International set a record high of 70 degrees, breaking the previous record of 68 set in 1976.

Monday will bring yet another mild day. Although cloud cover will remain, winds out of the southeast will allow highs to climb into the middle to upper 60s. Southern Maryland may flirt with the 70 degree mark.

A strong cold front will bring showers and periods of heavier rain beginning Monday night and extending into Tuesday. Some models indicate the potential for one to two inches of rain by the end of Tuesday. Skies will clear Wednesday as cooler air settles across the mid-Atlantic.
