From StormWatch7's Molly Cochran:
TODAY: AM Sprinkle & Clouds, Gradual Clearing
WINDS: Northwest 5-10 mph, Gusts to 20
TONIGHT: Mainly Clear
WINDS: Northwest 5-10 mph
MONDAY: Partly to Mostly Sunny
WINDS: North 5-10 mph
Sunday morning will start off with lingering cloud cover and a stray sprinkle, but plenty of sunshine returns for the afternoon. This sun and some downsloping flow out of the northwest will help most of the area get back toward 70° again! Afternoon plans outdoors look great!
Presidents' Day looks dry and relatively mild, but not quite as warm as the weekend. The temperature forecast gets a little tricky Monday because a back door cold front will be slicing the area. Northeast Maryland is expected to be much cooler Monday compared to today, while D.C. on south stays mild. It all depends on where the boundary sets up on who is still warm and who drops about 10 degrees. I expect D.C. to top out just shy of the 60 degree mark.
This cold front keeps us cool on Tuesday, but temperatures are still above average for this time of year.
A little disturbance passes through on Tuesday night/Wednesday. This feature looks to lack moisture once crossing the mountains, but cloud cover will be plentiful. A warming trend takes over for the end of the work week, followed by our next rain maker and cold front Friday night into Saturday. With all of the warm air around, the chance for thunderstorms is possible Saturday. This is at the end of our forecasting period so there is room for adjustments.
