High pressure will ease during the overnight hours as clouds increase. Temperatures will fall into the middle to upper 40s in the northern and western suburbs, with 50 degree readings closer toward the District. Mild southwesterly flow will allow for highs to rebound into the middle to upper 60s on Monday.

A strong, yet slow moving cold front will arrive late Tuesday bringing showers and a chance for thunderstorms.  The areas most likely to have thunderstorms will be east of the District, around southern Maryland and the Delmarva. By the time the system clears the mid-Atlantic, one to two-inches of rain will have fallen. Localized flooding is not expected to be a problem.
