For a part of the early afternoon, the skies offered some Valentine’s day love, with a window of splendid sunshine. But for most of the day, it’s been cloudy, with a few sprinkles mainly north of the District. The clouds stick around tonight, but Wednesday looks wonderful, with sunshine and temperatures in the 50s.
Through Tonight: We may have a few sprinkles or light showers around this evening, mainly north of the District. Otherwise, it’s mostly cloudy, but not too cold. Lows range from near freezing in the colder suburbs to the upper 30s downtown. Winds are light.
Wednesday: High pressure builds into the region. We may have some morning clouds, but sunshine dominates by afternoon. Temperatures rise in response to between 50 and 55. It’s a little breezy, with a wind from the northwest at 10-15 mph.
Warm winter continues in D.C.: Half of the first 14 days of February have reached 50 or higher at Reagan National Airport. Tomorrow, we’ll make it 8 of 15. If you thought today’s 56 in DC was mild, do you remember Valentine’s Day 2011? It hit 70!
