Save for some gusty winds and elevated pollen counts, an "eggs"cellent Easter weekend is on tap!{ } The perfectly clear skies of late, { }provided by an extensive high pressure system, will continue today with highs in the lower 60s and northwesterly winds gusting to 25 mph.{ } A{ } Red Flag Warning is in effect for much of the area from 10 AM until 8 PM;{ } low fuel moisture, very dry air, and{ }strong winds have raised the risk of fires.{ } With the rainfall{ }deficit{ }at Reagan National nearing 4 inches for the year, additional Fire Weather Watches and Red Flag Warnings{ }are likely.

Easter Sunday promises to be almost as sunny as today{ }and even a bit milder with highs near 70.{ } Gusty winds will continue out of the west up{ }to 25 mph.{ } Easter Monday{ }could show the effects of a passing front with partly sunny skies and the chance of some showers; with the air so dry, however, the rain chances are low.{ }{ }A low pressure system over Canada will likely give us cool and somewhat unsettled wesather at midweek before high pressure returns at week's end.{ } High temperatures throughout the week should be in the upper 50s.{ } Enjoy what should be an "eggs"ceptional holiday weekend!
