The sunshine rules for the start of the week with a quiet pattern through the weekend.
The month is already well above normal as far as temperatures are concerned and there is no real threat of that changing this week. With highs only in the mid 40s this weekend, temperatures have been on the rise in the D.C. area today, making it to the lower 50s through much of the area. This is where they should stay tomorrow before falling as a weak system passes through the area on Wednesday. Here's more in my latest afternoon analysis.
Question for the Week: Will it snow on Wednesday? I would say the region will see a few flakes during the daytime hours, possibly around lunch time. Anything that does fall will be very light in nature and only add up to a trace or so. I'm also thinking it could mix in with a little light rain as well.
Next Weekend: The weekend ahead may feature cooler temperatures back into the mid 40s at best as an area of high pressure settles in over the northern Plains. As of now, it appears there could be a chance for a few flurries but otherwise it will be breezy and cold. Next Monday may have some of the coldest air we've seen over the past few weeks. We'll have updates for you later this week.
