Hopefully the gray skies haven't gotten you down too much, because we're looking socked in with clouds for a lot of Tuesday, too. Hang in there, we've got some sunshine on the way. For now, keep the umbrella handy tonight and at least the first half of Tuesday.
Overnight will stay cloudy and drizzly. Temperatures will hang in the 60s area-wide and won't move much from now until Tuesday morning. Rain is most likely during the morning with cloudy skies at least through lunchtime. There may be some late day peeks of sun, but it will generally stay cloudy. Rain is likely with the steadiest north and west of the District, closer to areas like Winchester and Hagerstown. It will get a bit warmer, with most of the region back in the 70s.
Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the middle 80s. A cold front pushing through the area will bring showers and thunderstorms for the afternoon and evening. We are under a "slight risk," for severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center. The strength of Wednesday's storms will largely depend on how much sun and how hot we get during the day. The hotter it gets, the more unstable the atmosphere will become. Regardless, a line of showers and some thunderstorms can be expected in the afternoon and evening. Behind the front, temperatures and humidity drop. The front may stall along the coast keeping slight chances for rain in the forecast late week.
At this point, the first full weekend of fall is looking quite nice with sunshine, low humidity, and highs in the mid to upper 70s. Finally!
