Thursday: Partly Sunny, Sprinkles/Flurries

Yesterday, today and tomorrow...three different days with nearly identical weather conditions. This is due to the interaction of a large area of low pressure over the North Atlantic and a large ridge of high pressure that stretches from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico. The morning sunshine diminished as gusty winds developed, which, in turn, developed cloud waves and decks that produced sprinkles and flurries. The pattern will begin to break down on Friday with more sunshine than clouds and temperatures climbing into the lower and middle 50s.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with highs in the middle to upper 50s. Easter Sunday will be mild. In fact, the high temperature may approach 60 degrees. But any early morning sunshine will quickly give way to increasing cloudiness as a strong push of moisture overspreads the region ahead of the next cold front. While steady or heavy rain will stay well west and north of the Washington area, there is a 40% chance of areas of rain developing by afternoon or evening.
