Published on by Jason Fouchard

5day Graphic for 9/22/12It has been a nice, cool day out so far, but showers and thunderstorms, some strong, are beginning to pop up over the area, especially north of DC.  The SPC says a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is possible if conditions worsen, so keeping an eye on the weather today is a good idea, especially if you have any outdoor plans.  Will the rain continue through the rest of the weekend, or will the rest look bright? Read on to find out!

Isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue into the evening, with some having the potential to bring heavy rains and strong wind gusts of 50-60 mph.  The possibility for a few severe cells cannot be ruled out.  Showers should die down later this evening and overnight.

Tomorrow is looking to be like how today started off.  Expect mostly sunny skies, but with cooler temperatures behind the front that is moving through this evening—they might barely break into the 70s in some places, especially in the mountains.  Temperatures overnight will also be very chilly, ranging from the 40s in the mountains to lower 50s in the city.

Monday will remain much of the same, with highs around 70°, and sun persisting.  Temperatures will warm a little more Tuesday into the mid-70s.

Highs will peak around 80° Wednesday as another system works its way through during the afternoon hours.  Expect some showers during that time Wednesday.

The end of this week is looking to be cooler and sunny, as high pressure build in behind the front Wednesday.
