DC Forecast for Sat, May 18, 2013

 

Published on by Jason Fouchard

5day Forecast 5/18/13It’s been a cool and dreary day out, complete with scattered showers over parts of the DC Metro area.  With no sun in sight and cooler offshore air being blown in from the East, it has not been the best weekend to be outside.  Take a peak after the break to see when the rain will end and sun will return.

The frontal system which has stalled to our south and has been helping to produce the showers today, will begin to slowly move North back towards the DC metro tomorrow.  This will bring with it slightly warmer temperatures than today, but will still be below normal in the lower-70s.  The sun will remain mostly hidden behind mostly cloudy skies, and scattered showers, much like today, are likely.

The scattered showers will taper off Monday morning, and we will begin to see more sun, along with warmer temperatures.  Highs will soar into the upper-80s, with some areas potentially breaking 90° on Tuesday.

The extra sunshine and heat will bring the chance of scattered afternoon thunderstorms on both Monday and Tuesday.

Wednesday should be a tad quieter, under partly sunny to mostly sunny skies, and temperatures still hovering in the mid-80s.

Throughout the week, a low pressure system will be slowly making its way eastward across the country, and will finally reach the East Coast late Thursday.  Showers and thunderstorms should enter our area late in the evening Thursday, and will continue into Friday, as temperatures fall slightly to around 80°.
