We're heading into a chilly evening under mostly clear skies. Fortunately, it won't be as cold as last night with temperatures only dropping into the 40s overnight.
Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week with afternoon temperatures in the upper 60s and even 70 degrees. A dry cold front will slide across the DMV late Tuesday allowing for cooler air Wednesday. Highs Wednesday will fall back into the middle 50s with breezy northwest winds. Each day this week will likely be a degree or two cooler. However, we will at least have mostly sunny skies for the majority of the week. By Friday, more cloud cover will build in as rain heads our way for part of the weekend.
Our next weather maker will develop from the remnants of Hurricane Willa (in the Pacific Ocean heading toward the Mexican coast). Low pressure will redevelop along the Gulf Coast and then track north along the eastern seaboard bringing rain. Steady rain is more likely Saturday, which is better news for those running in the 43rd Marine Corps Marathon. We are still several days out, so stay with StormWatch7, as we fine tune the forecast.
