Light southerly winds and partial sunshine delivered a delightful Friday afternoon, with temperatures around 60 degrees. We hold on to these mild conditions over the weekend, but sunshine may be hard to come by.
Through Tonight: A weak wave of low pressure rides through the region tonight, likely offering a period of light rain. Rain could start in areas southwest of the District as early as 8 or 9 p.m. and end as late as 7 a.m. in our eastern suburbs. The best chance of rain – regionwide – is between roughly midnight and 5 a.m. It shouldn’t amount to much, maybe 0.1-0.2″. Overnight lows are not nearly as cold as the last several nights, ranging from the mid-to-upper 40s.
Saturday and Sunday: Both days are mostly cloudy, although some breaks in the clouds are possible at times – particularly Saturday afternoon and evening. Highs Saturday are near 60 and, with a push of winds (around 10 mph) from the south, in the mid-60s Sunday. I can’t entirely rule out the chance of some light showers late Saturday night – when lows are near 50 – and/or on Sunday, but odds are only 20 percent or so.
