Most everything took a tumble yesterday. Temperatures dropped to January levels, snowflakes fell in defiance of the season and spirits sank as hopes for a spring break were dashed once again. Although Saturday's official high at Reagan National was 42, that reading occurred right after midnight; the actual daytime high was a bone-chilling 37 with the unrelenting winds producing wind chills in the low 20s. This morning still feels wintry with temperatures in the 20s flirting with all-time lows for the date. But the weather pendulum is about to swing our way. Look for plenty of sunshine today and significantly lighter winds. And while today's highs in the upper 40s are still far below the seasonal norm of 60, it won't be as bitingly cold as Saturday. A switch in the winds from northwest to southwest tonight will bring milder air our way on Monday. A morning shower is possible and winds will gust to over 20 mph, but tomorrow will see temperatures rise to the low 60s. And to further raise your spirits, the warming trend is likely to last through the week with daytime highs in the 60s throughout!
