TONIGHT: Cloudy, Spotty Showers

WINDS: Northwest 5-10 mph
MONDAY: Partly Cloudy, Still Mild
WINDS: North 5-10 mph
What a beautiful start to the weekend! Many of us hit 70° Saturday and could do it again Sunday!
As an upper level disturbance moves over head tonight, spotty showers are likely. Fortunately, it will bring cloudy skies as well and this means temperatures stay very mild. Overnight lows will be close to 50°. The chance for rain is best in the higher elevations, but a sprinkle is possible in the Metro area tonight as well, especially around midnight. Sunday morning will start off with lingering cloud cover, 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.
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.
Our coolest day this week is Tuesday, but in the low 50s, it is still above average.
Another disturbance moves through late Tuesday, which will increase clouds and the chance for rain. Some showers could show up as early as Tuesday evening, but overnight is more likely. 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.
