Monday morning greeted us with abundant amounts of sunshine and cooler-than-average temperatures. We’d expect to see high temperatures in the mid-50’s for early March but today’s high only reached the mid-40’s. Even with these relatively pleasant conditions, we still had to contend with some winds. We had a light wind out of the northwest with some occasional gusts up to 25 mph. Today was a far cry from the dangerous conditions we saw last week.
The area will stay dry overnight, but with some increasing clouds. Our winds will shift out of the northeast at 5-10 mph. This should help temperatures to fall into the low-30’s across the region. Some spots may dip into the high-20’s.
Bring a small umbrella with you tomorrow. The morning should start out sunny, but clouds will move in during the early afternoon. A low-pressure system will push into our region from the east, increasing our chances for showers in the afternoon. Temperatures will rise into the mid-40’s with a light wind out of the south. Sleet or a few wet snowflakes may mix in with the rain later in the day, especially north of D.C.
