The front is sliding through and temperatures are starting to fall.

This Afternoon:
Showers tapering off, temperatures falling
Temperatures: 60s
Wind: NW 10-20 mph
Partly cloudy and chilly
Lows: Upper 40s in the suburbs, mid 50s downtown
Wind: N 5-15 mph
Partly to mostly sunny and cool
Highs: Upper 60s to low 70s
Wind: NE 5-15 mph

The strongest storms, associated with the cold front, continue to push east of the D.C. metro area.  Stay updated via our Live Super Doppler through the rest of the afternoon, as showers taper off from west to east.  Temperatures are already falling into the 60s and will continue to drop into the 40s and 50s overnight with gradual clearing.  Sunshine returns tomorrow with highs barely reaching the 70 degree mark.

The middle and end of the work week looks rather uncertain, as some computer guidance suggests a cut-off low developing off the coast, which could mean clouds and showers from Wednesday through Sunday.  There is still high uncertainty with this forecast, so we'll continue to monitor it closely.  Temperatures, after a hot stretch of days, will finally drop to more "fall-like" levels.
