Last chilly day, then 80s are back the rest of the week.

This Afternoon:
Sunny and Milder but Increasing high clouds
Highs: Upper 60s

Partly Cloudy early then Mostly Cloudy and not as cold
Lows: Near 50
Wind: S 5
Partly Sunny, Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms

Finally, the warm up sticks around into the weekend. Look at these morning lows

It was the coldest morning of the week with temperatures more indicative of March than May.  We tied the record low at Dulles(32 degrees) and in Baltimore(34 degrees) and missed it by one degree at Reagan National (Record was43 in 1996). Check out the chilly morning lows:   

Morning Lows

This is the worst of the cold snap and we will see winds become southerly  this afternoon as a warm front moves through. It will also bring some clouds this afternoon and tonight. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible by mid-morning Wednesday and then again in the afternoon, but no washout in the forecast. Chances of storms almost every day the rest of the week, but the warm temps remain.
