Weather Summary

Morning temperatures dropped into the upper 10s to mid 20s under cold high pressure and light winds. Baltimore (BWI) tied the record low for this date of 20 degrees, and Dulles Airport VA unofficially broke the record low of 17 degrees by dropping to 16 this morning. Temperatures rebounded into the mid 40s today under a bright, sunny sky. Although still ten degrees colder than average for this time of year, the 40-degree readings were an improvement over yesterday's strong winds and near-freezing temperatures. A southerly flow will develop this evening, and this will hold temperatures above freezing during the overnight hours. Lows by Friday morning will only drop into the upper 30s. Meanwhile, a cold front will approach the area from the west on Friday. This will result in cloudiness and widespread rain showers. Temperatures will be mild with highs in the 50s to near 60. A wave of low pressure will develop and move along the front on Saturday, producing heavier rain showers. By Sunday, the sky will begin to clear with highs in the 50s. The long-term outlook calls for several days of sunshine next week along with temperatures in the mid 50s to near 60, which is typical for the end of March.
