After a gorgeous weekend, unsettled weekend returns with some welcomed rain for the new work week.
High pressure off the New England Coast, the source of this weekend’s fantastic weather, is sliding away. Expect an increase in cloud cover today ahead of our next storm that will be crawling our way from the Tennessee Valley. As the storm draws closer there is the risk of some light rain possible late in the day, especially south and west of the District. However, rain chances increase tonight and into Tuesday from southwest to northeast across the area.
The storm will be a very slow-mover and will impact the area Wednesday and Thursday, providing chances of daily showers and cooler-than-average temperatures in the 60s. This is good news since we are still in need of rainfall with a yearly rainfall deficit of nearly three inches at Reagan National Airport. The storm will finally depart by the end of the work week, allowing for the some sunshine and warmer-than-average temperatures in the upper 70s Friday. Enjoy the new week.
At last check tree pollen was high as was the grass pollen which generally explodes in May!
