PM Update: Continued chilly, but calm for now

It’s been yet another unseasonably cold day around here, mixed with sun and clouds. The most clouds have been south of D.C., closer to another small disturbance that has brought a little bit of snow and rain showers to parts of southern Virginia. Temperatures have been painfully slow to rise this afternoon, just now reaching the low-and-mid 40s most spots.

Through Tonight: Any remaining clouds dwindle as we head through the evening, leaving us mostly clear overnight. It’s going to be another cold one as well (we’re used to it, right?) with lows reaching the mid-20s in the suburbs to near 30 downtown.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): We get treated to slightly milder air and partly-to-mostly sunny skies. Enjoy as much of both as you can because the rest of the week looks to be a bit “troubled” with more clouds, precip and cool temperatures ahead. Expect highs to reach from around 50 to 55. There should also be a bit of a breeze, but nothing too bad.

Wedding Weather: Many probably worry about what the weather will do on their wedding day, but few get The Weather Channel to join in on the festivities. TWC has announced that “Wake Up With Al” will feature a special edition from London on April 25th to cover the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Also see a post from Jason discussing the forecast for the big day.
