WASHINGTON, D.C. – Warmer air will surge into the region tomorrow morning ahead of an approaching cold front. Temperatures will actually rise a few degrees overnight, ending up in the upper 50s by daybreak. We’ll be in the 60s midday as the front moves through, triggering a round of showers and a few thunderstorms. There’s the potential for a few strong wind gusts, so Metro DC and points east remain under a “marginal” risk for severe weather.
Thursday will be a sunny but cool day for the Nationals home opener. Afternoon temperatures will be in the low 50s. We’ll then enjoy a warmer Friday before a cold front slides through Friday night. This will set us up for a chilly weekend and a storm moving along the front will bring the threat for rain and wet snow on Saturday. It’s still too early to tell, but our latest computer model data suggests that much of the DMV may see wet snow. This could be an accumulating snow for some, although much of it will fall during the daylight hours. We’ll provide more details on this forecast over the next few days.
