We’re headed down to the nation’s capital for our forecast tonight. What does DC have to offer?
At 152AM, ET, Washington was reporting a temperature of 50 degrees with overcast skies and a splash of light rain. Low visibilites were being seen throughout the region, but in the immediate vicinity, Reagan National was the only site reporting rain. A weak area of surface low pressure was centered on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, establishing DC in the cooler, wetter side of the feature. The feature is a part of an upper level, cutoff trough, attempting to shift to the northeast.
A wave moving through western Ontario is producing a cold front in the Great Lakes. These two features are attempting to merge, and as a convenient happenstance, their merger will create more stable flow in Maryland and Virginia. Saturdy will be a bit rainy as the system departs, but the cold frontal arrival on Sunday won’t be as dramatic as it will be in the Ohio Valley today. Instead, expect some wind but deteriorating precipitation, and a dry, cooler end to the weekend.
