Now seems like a good time to remind everyone that schedules for forecasts here at The Weather Blog are generated randomly by a computer algorithm. Now, on to the April Fool’s Day forecast for the Nation’s Capital.
At 1252PM, ET, Washington Reagan Airport was reporting a temperature of 55 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. A weak ripple along the mean wave has moved through Canada and is generating disturbed weather to the west, while remnant clouds from a system off the North American coast has left moisture in place over the Eastern Seaboard.
The surface low that has been affiliated with the weak disturbance in Canada isn’t even close to where it was initially expected to be. Model guidance wanted the system to redvelop over New York and Pennsylvania, though that hasn’t born out. More northerly solutions have carried showers and storms more quickly through the DC area overnight tonight, and at this time, the prudent forecast is one that is mostly dry. There is still some slight chance that the associated boundary may squeeze out a drip or too, but it is more likely that DC stays dry the next two days as a narrow window of high pressure builds into the area.
