We are returning to our nation’s Capital for the forecast today. There has been a lot of nasty weather in the east and southeast of late, but now, it looks like there may be a pause. Will it old through the end of March?
At 1152AM, ET, Washington-Reagan was reporting a temperature of 52 degrees with clear skies. In the wake of the latest cold front, skies across the eastern Seaboard had cleared, and high pressure had taken hold, though a brisk west wind was leaving a bit of a chill to the air. Washington was seeing gusts approaching 30mph.
A deep trough in the Plains will advance eastward and lead the complicated jet structure over the mid-Atlantic to devolve. Warm air will rise through the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, though low pressure moving through eastern Canada will drag a cold front out of the Appalachians and into the District of Columbia by late Wednesday morning. Some development along the front around eastern Tennessee will allow for a surge in moisture in Washington, leading to a rainier day than most areas on the Atlantic on Wednesday. Some thunder will mix in late in the day, but again, a lot of the thunder will be confined to points south of the Potomac.
