Some partial sunshine finally emerged this afternoon after more than three days of cloudy skies. Temperatures responded, warming to 60 degrees or so.  On Wednesday, we see some more sunshine and a shot of 70-degree warmth, but a line of showers may zip through the region in the afternoon.

Not a bad day to “work” from home, if you normally rely on Metro.

Metro system to shut down beginning at midnight

Through Tonight: Clouds continue to gradually increase this evening, but patchy areas of fog may develop toward morning. Temperatures are relatively mild (compared with average), with lows 45-50.  Light winds.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Areas of fog early on burn off, with partly to mostly sunny skies for the balance of the morning.  But clouds increase in the afternoon, with the chance (30 percent) of a brief shower and possibly a rumble of thunder passing through the region before dark.  Any shower shouldn’t last more than 30-45 minutes, so the balance of the day is quite nice, especially considering forecast highs of 70-75 degrees!
