Yesterday's chill was the exception{ }in a month that has been resolutely warmer than a March ought to be!{ } The 50 degree high at Reagan National was just the third below average day in a month that is over 6 degrees above the norm.{ }

Given that the coming week is expected to be almost summer-like with daytime highs in the 70s and nighttime lows dipping only to the 50s, March will come to resemble May even more.{ }

With southerly winds and high pressure in place, today will feature plenty of sunshine and highs in the low 60s.{ } The high begins to move away on Monday. But while some clouds and a cold front{ }will arrive late in the day and some showers could fall into Tuesday, there is no cold air in the wake of the front.{ }

On the contrary, a succession of warm, even slightly humid days will characterize an unseasonably warm week.{ } Highs in the mid to upper 70s will make{ }belie winter{ }- which is still the official season until March 20!{ } Enjoy your first day of Daylight Saving with sunny skies until 7:12 PM.{ }
