D.C.-area forecast: Drying out today before more rain Sunday

A somewhat subjective assessment of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

7/10: We got some much needed rain, now we have a much needed pleasant Saturday.

  • Today: Showers/morning dew, then clear. High: Near 70 to 70 low.
  • Tonight: Showers after midnight. Low level: 50s.
  • Tomorrow: Showers and thunderstorms, turning into gusts of wind. High: Mid 60’s to nearly 70’s.

The harshest winter/spring of winter/spring is over, we have a short respite today before more rain tomorrow. After record and near-record rainfall yesterday, our rainfall deficit is dwindling. Great news for the late escalation of drought. With this heavy rain in mind, I will enjoy any dry moment I can find.

Today is Saturday): Cloudy, foggy and perhaps a few showers lingering into the sunrise period. We should see at least occasional patches of sunshine in the mid-morning and perhaps more in the afternoon. The high should top 70 points. Winds from the east are about 5 to 10 mph. Reliability: Medium-High

Tonight: Clouds are dense and descending in the evening, with showers possible in the hours before dawn. Temperatures drop to the lows and mid-50s for most of the lows. Reliability: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Another storm system fired slingshots onto the East Coast. It should be a bit more inland this time than last time, which could mean more showers instead of all-day rain, but the waves last all day. Some afternoon thunderstorms — a few that can be intense — are possible as high temperatures reach the mid-60s or so. A higher total can hit or miss more than yesterday, but some scores could see an extra half an inch to an inch or more. Winds change direction strongly from the south and change direction from the northwest over time. Confidence: Average

Tomorrow night: Rain can mostly dissipate here before sunset. Fairly strong winds due to low pressure are moving northeast. Lows reach mid-40s to about 50s when the sky is clear. Confidence: Average

Cool and cool Monday. The morning sunlight can get a little self-defeating with the very cold air overhead. That means more clouds in the afternoon and afternoon. The high is only around 60 or in the low 60s. Chances of showers or showers in the afternoon. Winds blow from the west and northwest at about 15 mph, with gusts up to about 30 mph. Confidence: Average

We are still under the influence of a large cold vortex over the Northeastern United States through Tuesday. That could mean another sunny day giving way to clouds and perhaps showers. High temperatures may not go well beyond 60, which is nearly 15 degrees lower than average. Confidence: Average
