This Afternoon:
Mostly Sunny, Seasonably Mild, Breezy

It's looking good for the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House tomorrow as this Easter weekend in Washington is itself on a roll!  With the sun shining through high clouds yesterday, the high temperature reached a balmy 71 at Reagan National by mid-afternoon and the upper 60s at BWI Marshall and Dulles airports.  Today should be almost as mild as readings close to the seasonal norm of 68 are likely again.  But a low pressure center just off the Georgia coast continues to spread a layer of cirrus clouds in our direction, muting otherwise pleasant days and knocking the temperatures down a few degrees.  However high pressure to our north will be the stronger influence yet again today with 10 to 15 mph northeasterly winds gusting up to 22.  After a mostly clear night with temperatures in the low 40s, Easter Monday should be a mostly sunny day with lighter winds and highs near 70.

Showers and even a thunderstorm are likely on Tuesday, followed by a windier and cooler day on Wednesday.  Warmer air is due back later in the week -  along with more showers- as highs rise to the 70s.  Enjoy you Easter!
