7:00 AM | A one-day spike in temperatures to be followed by a return of winter-like cold and possible snow showers

6-Day DC Forecast

Today

Changeable skies today including some sunshine, becoming quite mild and breezy, occasional showers, but much of the time will be rain-free, maybe a thunderstorm late, highs in the low 70's

Tonight

Occasional showers with a possible strong thunderstorm with downpours and gusty winds, breezy, turning colder late, lows by morning in the lower 40’s

Friday

Mainly cloudy, much cooler and still quite breezy, chance for rain showers in the morning, rain or snow shower possible in the afternoon, near 50 degrees early in the day

Friday Night

Mostly cloudy, cold, chance for a rain or snow shower, near 30 degrees

Saturday

Lots of clouds, breezy, much colder, snow showers likely, near 40 degrees

Sunday

Mainly sunny, cold, upper 40’s

Monday

Partly sunny, milder, maybe a shower, upper 50’s

Tuesday

Partly sunny, mild, near 60 degrees

Discussion

A warm front passed through the region late yesterday and temperatures today will spike in the I-95 corridor; but this warm up will be rather short-lived. A strong cold front arrives this evening with showers and scattered strong thunderstorms and it will put an end to the quick burst of milder weather. Temperatures will begin a downward trend on Friday and that trend will continue into the weekend which will end up being well below normal for late March. In fact, this winter-like cold is likely to be accompanied by snow shower activity anytime from later tomorrow into Saturday as there will be lots of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere generating unstable conditions at the same time the colder air pours into the Mid-Atlantic region.

Discussion

A warm front will push through the region today and usher in much milder air for tomorrow; however, the spike in temperatures on Thursday will be short-lived and accompanied by showers and perhaps a few PM thunderstorms. A cold front will follow the warm front and pass through the area late Thursday and then temperatures will begin a downward trend from Friday into the weekend.

Wednesday Night

Mostly cloudy, mild, chance for some rain and fog, low-to-mid 40's for lows

Discussion

A weak disturbance will be passing through the region early today with clouds and the clouds should linger during the afternoon as well along with chilly temperatures for this time of year. High pressure area will shift off the east coast later in the day and this will open the door for a warm frontal passage on Wednesday and then temperatures should spike on Thursday. In fact, temperatures are likely to soar to 70 degrees on Thursday – the warmest day of the week – but the mild conditions will also be accompanied by showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm. It’ll turn colder at the end of the week following a strong cold frontal passage and this overall colder-than-normal weather pattern is likely to continue right into April.

12:40 PM | The threat for a little snow late tonight and early Tuesday

Discussion

Here we are now officially a few days into spring and temperatures remain at way below normal levels for this time of year. The normal high for today at Reagan National Airport (DCA) is 58 degrees and we’ll be lucky to get within 10 degrees of that mark during the afternoon hours. In addition to the cold, there is a little snow to worry about for late tonight and early Tuesday.

An upper-level disturbance is now crossing the Upper Midwest and it is causing a good deal of snowfall in portions of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois. In fact, Chicago, IL is likely to end up with a few inches of snow by later today and temperatures will hold at or below the freezing mark. While this disturbance will weaken tonight as it moves to the southeast, it is likely to generate snow showers in the DC and Baltimore metro regions late tonight and early Tuesday (between about 2 and 10am). There is even the outside chance for a coating of snow in parts of the area by the time the Tuesday morning commute rolls around. It does get much milder later this week with 70 degrees a possibility on Thursday, but don’t get used to it.
