Thanks to added clouds, overnight temperatures will only fall to the lower 30s in the District and upper 20s in the mountains. This is quite a contrast compared to the cold air that settled over the mid-Atlantic for most of the holiday weekend. An area of low pressure will develop off the North Carolina coast tomorrow bringing increased clouds for us. A few showers may develop across southern Maryland, but chances are very limited. Highs will be near 50 degrees.

Afternoon temperatures are anticipated to increase each day until Friday. By the end of the work week, look for highs in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees. Don't be fooled, a strong cold front will arrive midday Friday and temperatures will tumble. The chances for showers will also increase.

Models suggest the upcoming weekend and early next week will be quite cold.
