Off to the Nation’s capital for our forecast this evening. Right now, the region is smothered in remnant clouds behind a cold front that swept through yesterday. What will the end of the week bring?
At 1152AM, ET, Washington (Reagan) was reporting a temperature of 63 degrees with overcast skies. The region was still immersed in an upper level trough, where mid layer moisture remains pooled and clouds are widespread. DC is at the southern end of a thick layer of clouds east of the Appalachians, which should burn off this afternoon, but may return tomorrow morning, as the base of the trough associated with the clouds won’t clear out until tomorrow around midday.
The trough as it rotates north will fold into a broader redeveloping trough over the Great Lakes and New England, but flow through the trough will be fairly weak. The pattern tomorrow afternoon into Saturday morning will be clear and pleasant, while a return to something similar to the current pattern will arrive later in the day, with a few showers in the Appalachians and some mid to high clouds filling into the Potomac Valley.
