      It feels like forever since we've seen the sun and now we have a good two plus days of the golden delight.{} The coastal low is being pushed out by high pressure over the Ohio Valley that will now dominate our weather through the first half of Saturday.{} Proof of the sun and clearing on our roofcam at WJLA here:{}{}

      A sunny start

      {}Temperatures will be a little warmer the next few days with the lack of cloud cover.{} Highs will reach mid 50s by Saturday. However, the clouds will begin to creep back into the Washington area by Saturday afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west.{} An unsettled weather pattern then sets up with chances of rain by Saturday night continuing on and off through Wednesday.
