The high temperature in Washington managed to get to only 51 degrees today, just a tad cooler than yesterday’s record high of 83. Still, the 51 degrees is notable as it marks the 21st consecutive day where the high temperature hit at least 50 degrees. That’s a record in itself, as Washington has never gone the entire month of March without at least one sub-50-degree day. Judging by the mild forecast for the end of March, its quite likely we will break that record in 2020.
Through tonight: Partly cloudy skies in most locations this evening, with some clearing overnight. Temperatures will be moderated somewhat by cloud cover and a persistent wind from the north at 5-10 mph. Lows range from 32 to 36 degrees.

Tomorrow (Sunday): A mostly clear start with plenty of sunshine through the first half of the day. Highs should be very similar to today, topping out in the low 50s. Clouds should build in by the afternoon as an east wind pumps in more ocean moisture. Rain should break out late tomorrow night with lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.
