A cold front came sweeping through the region this morning, and we were able to bask in the sunshine for a few hours after its passage. It didn’t last too long, though, as the clouds quickly filled back in. Despite the overcast skies, we were still able to warm well into the 70s. It’s more of the same tomorrow, with warm temperatures and cloudy skies, before a line of thunderstorms moves through Sunday night.
Through tonight: Clouds will continue to filter into the region, leaving us with overcast skies for the remainder of the evening and overnight. Some areas of patchy fog and/or drizzle are possible toward daybreak, especially south and east of the city. Remaining quite mild, with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Tomorrow (Sunday): Scattered showers and pockets of drizzle are possible in the morning. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy, warm and noticeably humid on Sunday. Winds will pick up out of the south during the day, gusting to 20-plus mph. Highs will top out in the mid-70s, with dew points rising into mid-60s. A strong cold front will pass through late Sunday night, touching off a few thunderstorms, some of which may become severe. Overnight lows will be around 60 degrees.
Masters outlook: Tiger Woods is in the hunt as we head into the final day at the 83rd Masters. And that means all eyes will be on Augusta, Ga., come Sunday afternoon. They were lucky enough to avoid any weather delays through the first three rounds, but I doubt that’s the case for Round 4.
A strong line of thunderstorms, associated with the system that brought severe weather to Texas and Louisiana on Saturday, will pass through the tournament Sunday afternoon. That should be good enough for at least a brief weather delay right as the leaders tee off for their final rounds.
