At long last, we had a genuinely comfortable day! Saturday's 67 degree high at Reagan National marked the 2nd warmest day this calendar year. Only the 69 degree reading back on February 21st was toastier. However a cold front, now moving through to our south, will bring a temporary halt to the heat. For while it is seasonably cool this morning with most areas in the 40s, breezy northwesterly winds are ushering in chillier air. After widely scattered showers move off to the east, overcast skies will turn mostly sunny and the mercury will top out in the mid to upper 40s. Look for the winds to gust to 30 mph.
Our fortunes reverse by Monday as high pressure over the south will set up a southwesterly flow. The warmer air will bring back the 60s for both Monday and Tuesday. The pendulum will swing again on Wednesday as colder air drops down from Canada, bringing with it the likelihood of a cold rain, highs in the 30sand 40s, and the possibility of some snow in the overnight hours. Thereafter, in what will be a week of weather whiplash, temperatures will start to moderate again with highs nearing 60 by Saturday.
