With the rain in the rear view mirror, look for a partly sunny, breezy, and seasonably cool Sunday with high temperatures around 50.  Yet another milder than normal January day is on tap for Monday.

This Afternoon:
Partly Sunny & Breezy, Seasonably Cool
Highs: 48-52
Wind: NW 10-15/G 25 mph
Clear & Chilly
Lows: 31-37
Wind: S 5 mph
Partly Sunny & Milder
Highs: 53-55
Wind: S 10-15 mph

After the deluge, a day to dry out and bask in some sunshine!  Yesterday's significant rain, averaging 0.75 to 1.25 inches, and its attendant fogginess, are gone and strong northwesterly breezes have ushered in partly to mostly sunny skies.  But while Saturday's sogginess is history, its milder than normal temperatures happily remain.  After a high of 58 at Reagan National - making for the warmest day this new year - readings today are generally in the 40s as they head for near 50 this afternoon.  Downslope winds off the Appalachians will make for a seasonably cool day with plenty of sunshine to the south of the District, but considerable cloudiness north toward the Mason Dixon Line.  Tonight will be clear and chilly before yet another comfortably cool, partly sunny day on Monday.  Showers are likely Monday night into Tuesday with chillier air and the possibility of some snow on Wednesday.  Thereafter, high pressure will return with mostly sunny, but colder days into next weekend.  Some models show a coastal low developing late in the week, a possibility we'll be following as the week progresses.

NOTE: Just as we've been battered by a week of extraordinary temperature swings, icy precipitation and drenching rain, so too have been the roads.  Enjoy your Sunday, but be careful of an outbreak of potholes across the area, the jarring souvenirs of our challenging weather week!
