Regionwide temperatures finally eclipsed 32 degrees today, after just about 72 consecutive hours of below-freezing temperatures. The warming trend will continue with each passing day, peaking by Tuesday when temperatures look like they will reach the low to mid-60s.
Through tonight: Mostly clear skies overnight, with temperatures falling back below the freezing mark. Lows will range from the upper 20s to around 30 degrees. Light winds out of the south/southeast at 5 mph will gradually increase the amount of low-level moisture, which may result in some patchy fog in the predawn hours.

Tomorrow (Sunday): Some low clouds/patchy fog early, before partly sunny skies develop. Just how sunny remains somewhat of an unknown, as winds from the southeast will continue to pump in the low-level moisture, favoring an environment featuring more clouds than sun. Areas west of the District have the best chance at the most sunshine, while areas to the east stand the best chance for mostly cloudy skies. Afternoon highs will range from the mid-40s to low 50s, depending on how much sunshine develops where you are. Partly cloudy and not as cold Sunday night, with lows in the low 30s.
Final snowfall numbers: A widespread 1 to 2 inches of snow fell around the Washington region Friday, bringing the seasonal snowfall total (at Reagan National Airport) to 13.8 inches. Friday’s event slides into the list as the third-biggest snowfall of the 2018-2019 season for most of us. The full list of snowfall totals can be found here.
