A Freeze Warning is in effect for areas well north and west of Washington. A Frost Advisory has been posted for Washington’s northern and western suburbs. The hours mostly likely for a freeze/frost to occur are between 4 am and 7 am Saturday morning.
Clear skies, diminishing winds and colder temperatures are forecast again tonight with overnight lows dropping close to 30 degrees well north and west of Washington, the middle 30s in northern and western suburbs and closer to 40 degrees in Metro Washington.
There will be some sunshine tomorrow morning but cloudiness is expected to increase from the south and west during the day. Rain (60% chance) will arrive from the same direction during the late afternoon or early evening hours. High temperatures will reach no higher than the upper 50s. Periods of rain are likely tomorrow night.
Rain is likely to continue Sunday morning. The forecast detail we cannot supply is exactly when the rain will end on Sunday. Different computer models have different times forecast in their simulations. We believe the rain should move south and east of Washington by noon. And then continue to move away from the entire area during the rest of the day. There is a chance some areas, especially north and west of Washington, may see a little afternoon sunshine. Temperatures will remain well below average with highs again remaining in the middle to upper 50s.
Sunny and milder weather will return early next week.
