A FROST ADVISORY is in effect overnight for Montgomery, Howard, Frederick and counties north and west in MD and for Loudoun and Fauquier Counties and points westward in VA.
As high pressure builds across the area, cool temperatures and gusty winds have been widespread. Later tonight, the winds will diminish and temperatures will fall into the 30s outside the beltway and remain at or above 40 degrees in the city. We’ll see more sunshine tomorrow than we have seen today as the center of high pressure moves closer. Additionally, temperatures will be milder as we head into the mid 60s. Over the weekend, the high pressure center will move south and east. That will effectively put our region in a return flow on the back side of the high….that means winds will shift and it will become noticeably warmer. Highs will climb into the 70s on Saturday, the 80s on Sunday and Monday and near 80 degrees on Tuesday before a cold front brings the chance of showers and thunderstorms.
