Looks like a nice weekend in D.C., but could be a little cool and gray at the beaches

Tonight: Clear and Chilly

Lows: Mid 40s to mid 50s | Wind: E 5 m.p.h.

Saturday: Mostly Sunny and Warm

Highs: Around 80 degrees | Wind: E 5-10 m.p.h.

Sunday: Becoming Partly Cloudy With A Slight Chance Of Showers Late

Highs: Upper 70s | Wind: E 5-10 m.p.h.

High pressure centered over southern New England is providing this beautiful weather pattern. Northeasterly winds are keeping temperatures just a little cooler than they would be otherwise. We are still watching an area of low pressure centered just southeast of Wilmington, NC. It appears likely this system will drift northward along the mid- Atlantic coastline line for the next few days. The effects on our area should be limited to a little increase in cloud cover on Sunday and a light easterly wind over the weekend.

By Monday, conditions will change as the coastal low continues. The chances of showers will steadily increase on Monday. And as you will notice in the forecast, I have included a slight chance of a shower late Sunday. All in all, it will be a nice weekend for outdoor activities. If you are going to the beach this weekend, be advised that north- easterly winds will be stronger and as a result, temperatures will be much cooler. Highs are only expected in the 60s and while tomorrow will be partly cloudy, skies could be mostly cloudy on Sunday. Looking well ahead…I am seeing signs that very warm temperatures may arrive in our area by next weekend.
