How about a decently mild weekend day without the wind? That’s exactly what we’ve got today, with increasing high clouds the only blemish on an otherwise pleasant spring day. It doesn’t last, though, as spring showers return tomorrow, before another cooler-than-normal stretch through midweek.

Today (Sunday): High pressure moves off the Atlantic coast today, which means a milder flow from the south-southwest. Highs should reach the low to mid-60s with decently bright skies, even as high clouds increase later this morning into the afternoon. Overall a rather enjoyable day without yesterday’s pesky wind. Confidence: High

Tonight: Skies are mostly cloudy by evening and they’ll stay that way overnight as low pressure approaches the area. Most of the night should stay dry, but some light and scattered showers could develop during the predawn hours. The clouds help keep us fairly mild overnight, with lows in the upper 40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Monday): A few light and scattered showers remain possible during the morning, with a better chance of some steadier rain during the afternoon, as low pressure rides along a front draped across the area. Showers, clouds and a cool breeze from the northeast hold highs to the low- to mid-50s or so. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: A period of steadier rain may linger into the early- to mid-evening, but should exit to our southeast thereafter. A colder wind from the north dries us out late evening and overnight, with clearing skies toward dawn as lows drop to the upper 20s to mid-30s. Confidence: Medium


High pressure moves our way for Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing another push of cooler air. However, in a minor miracle, we won’t be seeing too much in the way of wind this time! I know, I didn’t believe it either. Both days see plenty of sun, but with highs both only near 50 to the mid-50s. Tuesday night is mostly clear and calm as well, with lows falling to the low- to mid-30s. Confidence: Medium
