Today's Forecast Updated Sunday at 5:32 AM

Look for some showers to the south of DC this morning; otherwise mostly overcast skies will prevail. But those clouds will decrease at midday and a partly sunny afternoon is on tap with high temperatures in the lower 60s.
This Afternoon:
Turning Partly Sunny, Cool
Highs: 59-65
Wind: N 5-10 mph
Partly Cloudy
Lows: 38-47
Wind: N 5-10 mph
Mix of Sun & Clouds, Showers Possible, Quite Cool, Breezy
Highs: 61-65
Wind: NW 10-15/G 25 mph
After the chilliest and one of the dreariest days this month, we'll finish the weekend on a brighter note. Saturday's average temperature at Reagan National, a mere 49 degrees, was 11 degrees below the seasonal norm. The actual high temperatures of 53 was a whopping 17 degrees below average. And the rain, which fell late in the day and tallied about 1/4 inch, compounded the day's chill. But while showers continue to fall to the south and southwest of Washington this morning, prospects are good for a gradual decrease in the clouds throughout the day. Skies should be partly sunny by afternoon and temperatures, while not near the seasonal norm of 70, should make it into the lower 60s. Still our late April angst over cool, windy and overcast days will continue for one more day as Monday will feature highs near 60 and possible afternoon showers. Thereafter however, sunny skies and increasingly milder days will reboot the season. Look for readings in the low 70s Wednesday through Saturday with a few showers on Thursday the only fly in the ointment. Enjoy your Sunday and get ready to welcome back spring!
