This last day of March has been very pleasant, so far, with sunshine, spring breezes and temperatures pushing well into the 60s. And now it’s time for a predictable cliché…Sure looks like March is going out like a lamb.
Well… the sunshine will be fading through the remainder of the afternoon as a cold front quickly advances towards Washington. Showers are developing and isolated thunderstorms may develop this evening. This fast moving system will take the clouds and rain out of the area later tonight. Sunshine will return tomorrow but temperatures will be about ten degrees cooler.
Mostly sunny and warmer weather is forecast for Thursday. By Friday, temperatures could reach the lower 70s. But cloudiness will be increasing as will the probability of rain, later in the afternoon. Periods of rain will continue through at least midday on Saturday. Good news for Easter Sunday. We expect skies to be mostly sunny with afternoon temperatures climbing back into the lower 60s.
