7:00 AM | Weekend starts off real well and then goes downhill…significant rain event likely on Sunday night/early Monday

6-Day DC Forecast

Today

Partly sunny skies, quite mild, an isolated shower and maybe an afternoon thunderstorm, most of the day will be rain-free, highs in the mid 70’s

Tonight

Mainly cloudy early with a lingering shower possible then partly cloudy late, mild, lows by morning in the mid 50’s

Saturday

Mostly sunny, a bit of a breeze, quite mild, upper 70’s

Saturday Night

Partly cloudy, turning colder late, upper 40’s

Sunday

Increasing clouds, noticeably cooler, rain possible late in the day and at night, mid 60’s

Monday

Periods of rain in the morning, lingering showers in the afternoon, mild, upper 60’s

Tuesday

Partly sunny, mild, chance for a shower, upper 60’s

Wednesday

Mostly sunny, cooler, low 60’s

Discussion

A weak frontal system is approaching the eastern states today and it is generating scattered showers in the Mid-Atlantic region this morning - perhaps there will be an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. The weekend starts off real well with warm, dry conditions on Saturday, but then Sunday turns cooler along with increasing clouds. A significant rain event is likely in the DC metro region during Sunday night and early Monday as the overall weather pattern begins a transition to colder-than-normal weather which will be the dominate theme in the eastern two-thirds of the nation as we progress through the latter stages of April.

7:00 AM | Shower threat returns by late tonight…decent weekend, but overall unsettled pattern begins early next week with potential heavy rain event…colder pattern sets up for latter part of April

6-Day DC Forecast

Today

A mix of sun and clouds, comfortable temperatures, highs in the mid-to-upper 60’s

Tonight

Mostly cloudy, mild, chance for a shower late, lows by morning near 50 degrees

Friday

Mostly cloudy, mild, an occasional shower, but not a total washout, low 70's

Friday Night

Mostly cloudy, mild, chance for a shower, low-to-mid 50’s

Saturday

Mainly sunny, milder, low-to-mid 70’s

Sunday

Partly sunny, mild, chance for showers late in the day or at night, mid 60’s

Monday

Potential for a heavy rain event, mild, mid-to-upper 60's

Tuesday

Mostly cloudy, mild, chance for showers, mid-to-upper 60’s

Discussion

High pressure will control our weather for another day, but will shift off the coast by tomorrow. At the same time, the next cold frontal system will close in on the east coast and it should generate some shower activity in the Mid-Atlantic region as we close out the work week, but it will certainly not be a heavy rain event. The weekend looks quite nice, but then an overall unsettled weather pattern will develop early next week and there is the potential for a heavy rain event on Monday. This pattern change will ultimately result in much colder-than-normal weather for the eastern two-thirds of the nation during the latter part of April.

Discussion

A cold frontal system passed through the region on Tuesday and high pressure will build back into the Northeast US for today and Thursday. This high pressure system will move off the coastline on Friday and another frontal system will approach the eastern US bringing with it the chance for showers at the end of the work week.

7:00 AM | Occasional rain today from a slow-moving cold frontal system

6-Day DC Forecast

Today

Occasional rain today primarily before 3pm; otherwise, remaining mostly cloudy with some fog possible and a lingering shower or two, not as mild as yesterday with highs in the low-to-mid 60’s

Tonight

Mainly cloudy and quite cool with lingering showers this evening, lows by morning in the mid 40’s

Wednesday

Partly sunny, mild, low-to-mid 60’s

Wednesday Night

Partly cloudy, cool, mid 40’s

Thursday

Partly sunny, a bit cooler, maybe a shower, near 60 degrees

Friday

Mostly cloudy, milder, chance for showers, near 70 degrees

Saturday

Mostly cloudy, mild, chance for showers, upper 60’s

Sunday

Mainly sunny, seasonably mild, mid 60’s

Discussion

A cold frontal system is working its way through the I-95 corridor this morning and the result will be occasional rain in the I-95 corridor that will taper off later today from northwest-to-southeast although lingering showers can last into the early evening hours. High pressure will rebuild into the Northeast US for the mid-week time frame resulting in mainly dry conditions on Wednesday and Thursday. It’ll remain relatively mild on Wednesday, but then turn slightly cooler on Thursday ahead of the next frontal system which should generate more rain around here as we close out the work week. Longer term, a colder pattern is likely to set up for the last 10 days or so of April with below-normal temperatures likely in much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation for much of that time period.
