Not As Mild Today But Still Above Average
In terms of temperatures, we should reach the upper 40's northwest of the city and the low 50's along I-95 and points southeast for highs. Our average highs in the city are around 40 so we're going to get about ten degrees above average today. In terms of skies, expect a varied mix of sun and clouds, with more cloud cover northwest of the city and more sunshine southeast.
The first of two troughs will push through the Mid Atlantic tonight, bringing a shower or sprinkle to the region between 6 and 10 PM. Temperatures will be mild enough locally where it will be liquid, not frozen...and not a big deal since the atmosphere isn't exactly abundant with moisture. These two cool fronts will knock temperatures back about five degrees per day for both Sunday and Monday...before another bounce higher in temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday...and yeah, 60 is not out of the question by Wednesday afternoon.
