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.  It was nearly as mild at BWI Marshall and Dulles airports with highs in the upper 60s.  Today should be almost as comfortable with readings close to the seasonal norm of 68 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!
