DC Area Forecast: Scattered showers continue today with a cool breeze

A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather on a scale of 0 to 10.

3/10: Damp, dark and desolate as we are stalked by the rainy remains of Ian (but an extra point or two as we could use the rain).

  • Today: Cloudy and windy, scattered showers. Highs: Upper 50’s to near 60’s.
  • This evening: Cloudy with persistent showers. Lows: Upper 40s to near 50s.
  • Morning: Cloudy with occasional showers. Highs: Upper 50s to low 60s.

The remains of Ian will produce many showers today as we remain cloudy, cool and windy. An additional 1.3 to 1.9 inches of rain is possible in some locations today. An occasional shower is still possible tomorrow, with just a sporadic shower on Tuesday as temperatures remain well below average before higher pressure brings a brighter and warmer Wednesday.

Today (Sunday): Lots of clouds with isolated showers throughout the day. Northerly winds are breezy with peak gusts near 30 mph. Some higher squalls are possible along the Chesapeake Bay and on the east coast. Temperatures are mostly steady to near 60 (more than 10 degrees below average) in the mid 50’s and feel even cooler with the clouds, rain and gusty breezes. Confidence: Medium-High

This evening: It’s likely to be a mostly cloudy night with isolated showers. Nighttime lows cool to the upper 40s to near 50s while an occasional gusty breeze persists. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Monday): Abundant cloud cover remains as the remains of Ian continue to meander nearby. An occasional shower is still possible throughout the day with cool highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. And it’s still windy with gusts around 20-30mph. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: Mostly cloudy with a chance of a few showers. Overnight lows in the upper 40’s to near 50’s. Confidence: Medium

Dry air tries to penetrate from the west Tuesday, pushing Ian’s remnant circulation further east. But the clouds are slowly gathering, with mostly to partly cloudy skies and an isolated rain shower. Temperatures are trending only slightly higher, with highs still well below average, in the low 60’s with lighter winds. Tuesday night’s lows remain sharp in the upper 40s to low 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium

High pressure builds up from the west Wednesday. That means partly to mostly sunny skies and rebounding temperatures to highs in the low 70’s. Enjoy!
