Weather forecast remains uncertain with patterns in flux

Saturday - 5/18/2013, 7:55am  ET

WASHINGTON - Will the threat of showers mean a weekend washout, or will the D.C. region capture a bit of sunshine and milder air before Monday arrives?

A nearly stationary front continues to lurk to the south of the area. High pressure has established itself across New England, and the flow around this high is funneling cool, damp air into our area.

This will keep weather unsettled over the weekend. There will be widely scattered showers across the area Saturday - not a washout, but there will be some shower activity to contend with at times and there could be some thunder across the southern suburbs.

With the cloud cover and the easterly air flow, it will be cooler Saturday, with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Showers will continue through Saturday night into Sunday, but Monday and Tuesday will usher in warmer weather.
