Forecast: Spring-like, Thunder Even?
Turning cooler by Sunday
Over the next couple of days, you may see and feel spring in the air. It will be slightly muggy at times, thunder may rumble with passing showers, and temperatures will be way up there! After a cold front passes Saturday, Sunday should be much cooler.
PM T-showers? Warm 70s. Your wake-up could look murky (overcast, 30% chance of drizzle or fog) but some sun could emerge through the clouds, especially in the afternoon. Temperatures may start in the upper 50s, but southerly winds will help pump-up afternoon temperatures into the 70s. Sunny spots, south of the city, may well touch the 80-degree mark for the first time this season! Be advised that during afternoon rush hour, some thundershowers could begin to pop over the region.
Into the evening & overnight hours, a greater chance of rain and possible thunder move in. Most of it should be showery in nature, but a few spots with heavier rain cannot be ruled out. Low temperatures will only dip into the 60s. Notice a tinge of mugginess to the air?
60% chance of showers. Late clearing. Low 70s. Occasional showers are likely through the early afternoon. The Cherry Blossom parade starting at 10 a.m. may be a bit wet. Take that umbrella! By mid afternoon, most rain should taper off.
After dinnertime, skies will begin clearing and drier breezes from the northwest will usher cooler temperatures into the metro area. Lows from 43-48 degrees can be expected by dawn.
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week. Cooler? Cloudier? Also: See my NatCast for tonight's game, and check back later this morning for chief meteorologist Jason Samenow's report from the 2008 Bahamas Weather Conference.
Mostly cloudy, cooler. Upper 50s. Much cooler air will arrive on northwesterly breezes. We'll have some sunshine but an approaching upper-level low-pressure system will likely generate quite a bit of cloud cover by afternoon.
Overnight, clouds. There is a moderate chance (40%) of scattered showers as well. Temperatures will fall down to near 40.
A LOOK AHEAD
Intermittent showers continue into Monday along with a northerly breeze. It will be a fairly cool day, with highs in the mid 50s. Confidence: Low-medium
On Tuesday, some more sunshine is possible but it will remain cool, with highs just shy of 60. Confidence: Medium
