Warm weather to come after brief cold front

WASHINGTON — Get ready for a warm-up! I believe that’s something we can latch
on to, given the bitterly cold air that moved into our area last week.

after some evening rain on Sunday, we will warm up nicely on Monday — into
the lower 70s in some spots.


Temperatures warm to around 70 degrees on Monday.

However, a cold front will sweep through Monday night into Tuesday morning,
that’ll gradually bring an end to our mini warm-up. Tuesday should be a fairly
quiet day; temperatures will still top out in the mid- to upper-50s with

However, as we head into Wednesday, we could see some changes. Temperatures
fall below normal Wednesday and Thanksgiving, most likely topping out in the
mid- to upper-40s.


The frontal system passing through the area Tuesday morning will stall out off
the eastern seaboard. The models are hinting at an area of low pressure
along the stalled frontal boundary and moving north along it.

The question will remain: How close to the coast can that area of low pressure
get? If we see a shift westward, then we could have some rain/snow along the
eastern seaboard on Wednesday — D.C. area included. However, if it keeps
veering out to sea, there is a good chance of not seeing anything, so expect a
dry day here. We’ll continue to watch this as we head into next week.

There are no major storms across the region mid-next week. There could
a clipper system diving southeast out of northwestern Canada that could bring
some light snow showers to the Great Lakes region and Upper Plains (this could
include any Chicago airports). However, any snow associated with that looks to
be light.

Until then, just enjoy the weekend and we’ll keep an eye on the weather!
