A strong cold front will pass through our region tomorrow ending our brief run of spring-like temperatures.

This Afternoon: Increasing cloudiness. Isolated showers well west of D.C.

Highs: Upper 50s to near 60 | Wind: SE 10

Tonight and Overnight: Breezy and mild with showers likely.

Lows:  Around 50 | Wind: S 10-15

Saturday: Windy and mild,  a.m.showers and t-storms...clearing during p.m.

Highs: Low 60s | Wind: W 15-25 Gusts 30-35

After hitting 70 degrees yesterday, it's back to reality as we head into the weekend. Temperatures will climb into the upper 50s this afternoon as clouds slowly roll in from the west. As a cold front steam rolls through KY and TN today, there is a high probability of another outbreak of severe weather. Chances are increasing that tornadoes will develop, as well. We do not expect severe weather through the Greater Washington area. But there will be increasing chances of showers and isolated thunderstorms later tonight, overnight and through Saturday morning. Gusty winds and clearing skies are forecast  tomorrow afternoon.

Cooler weather will arrive on Sunday. And by Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will actually be below average. When's the last time that happened during this record warm winter?
