Temperatures:Latest D.C. area temperature map. See interactive map on our Weather Wall.

Now that average highs are in the mid-70s, there’s no way around a day with a breeze and highs near 60 being a bit chilly. And it only gets chillier from here, at least through tonight. Take care of those tender plants, especially if you’re in the north and west suburbs.

Through Tonight: There could be a random sprinkle early, but clouds wane as we lose the heating of the day. As winds also slacken, we only have one way to go — cold. Overnight lows range from near freezing in the coldest spots north and west to around 40 downtown. Bundle up!

Tomorrow (Tuesday): If you don’t mind the continuation of cooler than usual temperatures, it’s going to be a pretty nice day. Mostly sunny skies and light winds are the story as we begin our climb back toward respectable springtime temperatures. Highs head for the mid-to-upper 60s.
