As far as overnight March temperatures go, tonight really isn't all that cold. Under cloudy skies most of us will settle to a low near 50°. The only issue is that we have trouble warming up much beyond that during the day Sunday.
A backdoor cold front slices through the area tonight. This means our winds will turn easterly and northeasterly and chilly air will invade the DMV. After almost hitting 80° today, many places will be stuck in the mid and upper 50s on Sunday. It won't be a cold day, just a far cry from the warmth of Saturday. The coolest places will be north and east of D.C., while farther south and west, we'll warm into the 60s. While I expect Sunday to stay mostly dry, clouds will be persistent pretty much all day long.
The chill doesn't last long as we warm back into the 70s for Monday and Tuesday. Along with the warmth, comes some much needed rain as multiple waves of low pressure move across the country and ultimately affect the Mid-Atlantic. This will bring some rain on Monday, especially during the morning hours. Another chance for rain moves our way for the second half of the day Tuesday and Tuesday night as a cold front moves through. Wednesday will stay rather mild, but things cool for Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will only climb into the 50s, thanks to a good amount of sunshine.
Another system takes aim, bringing another chance for rain Friday and Saturday. Fortunately, after a cooler end of the work week, temperatures do look to rebound back into the 60s by next weekend.
Enjoy your Sunday!
