Morning Update: No Update.

Today:

A blank map. That’s what we have for you today. As far as DC is concerned, it’s just another clear, cold day, with temperatures peaking at 38 degrees around 3 p.m. And as far as the rest of the country is concerned, it’s also a clear, cold(ish) day, depending on exactly where you are. But in terms of rain, storms, or anything of significance, there’s just nothing going on. Why? High pressure systems dominate the country tomorrow, and a high pressure system is an indicator of clear weather. Just take a look at the map below.

As you can see here, there’s nothing to see. A high pressure system centered in northern Texas dominates 2/3rds of the country, and the storms you see off the southeastern coast aren’t projected to have an impact.

Although there isn’t an official record of how often this happen, the Weather Channel estimates that this only happens a couple times each year, so if you’re reading this article you can tell people that even though the weather seems boring, it’s actually a very rare weather “event”!

Tonight:

Same thing as during the day, but colder. The low drops down to about 22 degrees overnight.

Tomorrow (Saturday):

Tomorrow will also be a clear, quiet day, but significantly warmer, with highs in the low 50s. Overnight, temperatures drop to about 26 degrees.

A Look Ahead:

Next week, expect rain to kick off the week, with precipitation expected on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, a sharp contrast to the clear weather expected over the weekend.
