With high pressure sliding offshore, winds have turned south helping bump up temperatures. Highs today will reach the lower 40s in many locations. Clouds will increase later tonight, as an area of low pressure (currently over Texas) tracks north and east. This system will bring a wintry mix to the region beginning tomorrow mid-morning. After noon, temperatures will climb into the middle and upper 30s changing most of the precipitation to rain. Accumulations will light, if any. Far north and west of Washington, accumulations of up to 5 inches are possible, as temperatures won't climb and the transition to rain will not occur.
The precipitation will taper off tomorrow night and Sunday will bring a mix of clouds and sun, highs in the low 40s, and breezy northwest winds. The weather will remain quiet to start the next work week with temperatures, still below average, in the low to mid 40s. Have a great weekend!
