What started out as cloudy, some might say dreary day, morphed into a clear, sunny, and generally fantastic afternoon to enjoy the outdoors. A little cool in the shade with a chilly breeze, but the sun helped the temperatures climb into the mid-70s in the late afternoon. Read on for your full forecast for the rest of the week.
Expect clouds to begin returning throughout the evening as a cold front continues to move towards our area from the northwest. Some scattered showers are already moving through Western and Central Pennsylvania.
Wednesday should remain mostly cloudy throughout the area as the front nears, but temperatures should still reach into the mid-70s. The front should reach DC by the afternoon and stall. During this time, there is a slight chance of scattered precipitation over the entire area. The front will begin to move back North as a warm front overnight into Thursday.
Winds will remain from the south thanks to another low pressure system quickly progressing from the west. This will allow temperatures on Thursday and Friday to reach higher into the upper-70s.
The second system will bring with it a cold front overnight Friday into Saturday, giving us rain and thunderstorms overnight into Saturday morning to end the week. Temperatures will also fall ~10° behind the front, leading to a slightly cooler weekend in the lower- to mid-60s, albeit under sunny skies thanks to building high pressure.
