A number of spots in the D.C. metro area saw record high temperatures on Wednesday, and highs in the 60s are expected to continue Thursday. However, they'll be accompanied by rain.

Today: Filtered AM Sun, Then Mostly Cloudy, Warm

Highs: Near 60° | Wind: NW to S 3-6

Overnight: Rain, Heavy @ Times

Lows: 48°-56° | Wind: E 5-10 mph

Tomorrow: Becoming Partly Cloudy, Cooler

Highs: Around 50° | Wind: N 10 mph

The warmer than average temperature trend will continue through the holiday weekend. In addition, so will the storminess. As one storm exited overnight, the next storm is already approaching from the southwest. There will be filtered morning sunshine but the clouds will be on the increasing clouds with rain, possibly heavy at times, by tonight. There could be up to an 1 inch of rain by Friday morning.

The weather will improve tomorrow with cooler highs near 50°. Christmas Eve will be partly cloudy with more clouds than sun with another disturbance ejecting from the southwest Christmas Day while a cold front sails in from the west. Most of the moisture with the southern storm will likely stay south... but the cold front looks to move through late Christmas Day, with the chance of a late-day shower. Have a good day.
