Weather Summary

A pleasant spring day is expected on Wednesday across the Washington region as high pressure builds over the region from the southwest. The high will result in breezy conditions at times, but there will also be plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures as highs reach the mid to upper 60s. The high will continue to provide sunny and pleasant conditions through the day on Thursday with highs once again in the upper 60s. This high will nudge offshore on Friday as a cold front approaches the area from the west. This will produce more cloudiness with a few scattered rain showers, but most locations will remain dry.. Warm air surging northward ahead of the front will enable temperatures to reach 70 on Friday. In the wake of the cold front, winds will shift to the northwest and sunshine will return for Saturday and Sunday as high pressure builds over the area. As this high moves to our east on Sunday, a more southerly flow of air will develop and temperatures will approach the lower 70s on Sunday and the middle 70s on Monday. Next week will bring some changes with showers on Tuesday and much cooler conditions for the rest of the week.
