Friday: Gray, Cool & Rainy

Highs: 50-55 | Wind: E 5-15

Lows: 40s | Wind: SE 10-15

Saturday: Passing Showers, Warmer, Breezy

Highs: Lower 70s | Wind: SW 10-20+

Our weather is turning unsettled with gray skies and areas of rain developing on this Good Friday. A warm front will approach the D.C. area from the southwest, and this will give our atmosphere enough lift to cause scattered showers especially this afternoon and into Saturday as well. Highs today will be cool in the low to mid 50s due to the easterly flow off the Atlantic, but temperatures will climb to more comfortable levels into the weekend.

Saturday will likely have some areas of brief, light rain, but it won't be a washout. Then again, it shouldn't be completely dry either. The wind will increase tomorrow with gusty southwesterlies bumping highs into the lower 70s. Temperatures climb to near 80 on Easter Sunday with partly cloudy skies, but an isolated storm is possible Sunday evening. Overall, Sunday looks like the better day this weekend. Then sunny and near 80 again on Monday.
