THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT
Area of low pressure continues to move across the Mid-Atlantic this evening keeping the shower threat around for the commute and much of the late night hours. Temperatures fall from the upper 40s to the low 40s. Showers will dwindle after midnight but thick fog will be around through morning. DENSE FOG ADVISORY in effect until 9am. Lows will be fairly mild in the upper 30s to near 40. Fog may limit visibility at times for a bit until winds pick up and bring in drier air.
Clouds will continue to break up as we head through the day. Highs will be warm in the mid to upper 50s with a mild breeze out of the northwest. High pressure builds in overnight clearing the clouds. Lows dip to the low 30s.
We are looking at mostly sunny skies as the high controls our weather. We’ll crack 50 degrees again too. Our next system will bring showers Friday night. Most of the day is dry with thickening clouds, and highs reaching the upper 40’s. Showers will spread across the area overnight and the bulk of the rain will fall in the early part of Saturday. Clouds will break up and temperatures will be able to rebound to the 50s with mild morning lows around 40. Sunday is a tad cooler as a weak trough brings a bubble of colder air across the area. You can still expecting near seasonal temperatures despite a mix of clouds and some sunshine. There may be a few isolated showers too but I anticipate a mostly dry day at this point. Monday, another cold front approaches. We are dry during the day and very mild with temperatures once again well into the 50s ahead of the system. Showers hold off until late evening. They will continue into early Tuesday before moving out. Temperatures will be drop but we should still be able to hit 50 degrees for St. Patrick’s Day. At least it is looking mainly dry!
