It was another day of springlike temperatures around 60 degrees for much of the area. Although we’ve struggled to see full sunshine in recent days, that won’t be the case tomorrow. Those abundant rays come with somewhat cooler temperatures, as well.
Through tonight: Skies trend clear this evening. We may see a few high clouds blow by overnight, but it’s more clear than not. Somewhat cooler and drier air is moving in. Winds counteract maximum cooling a bit, although we’re still talking chilly lows ranging from near 30 to the mid- and upper 30s.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Clear skies persist for much or all of the day. It’s certainly cooler than today, as highs reach the upper 40s to lower 50s in most spots. Some mid-50s might sneak into the city and south or east.
Always raining: With weekend rain adding about half an inch to our annual tally, Washington is already up to 8.73 inches of precipitation this year. That’s well above the pace of last year at this time, when we’d recorded 6.16 inches. This is good enough for the wettest start to the year since 2003, when 10.10 inches was tabulated by this time. Storminess has been targeting the weekends again lately, as well, although there is reasonable hope that won’t be the case this coming weekend.
