This evening will start a period of generally unsettled weather, mainly occurring in the overnight hours of the next few days. Skies will gradually become mostly cloudy throughout the region with an ever-so-slight chance of an isolated shower. Lows tonight will range from the upper 30's to lower 40's to the north and west and in the lower to mid-40's to the south and east. Around the city, our low will dip into the lower to mid-40's as well. Winds will gradually decrease as well, from the southwest around 5 mph. Tomorrow, we'll have partly sunny skies again for most of the day and a great kickoff for Marathon Weekend. Clouds will, once again, thicken by evening ahead of an impending cold front. Highs will be up tomorrow as well, with most of the area topping out in the mid- to upper 50's. Some locales to the south and east could see their thermometers top out in the lower 60's as well. Winds will remain calm.
During the day on Sunday, we'll be mainly dry, with only a few sprinkles moving through. As we move closer to the evening, maybe just as the Eagles/Redskins game lets out, we'll start to see more substantial shower activity move into the region. Sunday will still be warm, with highs in the mid-60's and lows only dipping into the mid-50's. We'll be back into the mid-60's on Monday with showers through the morning. By afternoon, however, we'll start to see the showers taper off and the clouds move off. By nightfall, we will be behind the cold front, dropping our temperatures into the lower 40's.
Clearing will continue on Tuesday with cooler temperatures in the lower 50's for our high and near freezing for the low. For Wednesday and Thursday, we'll see mainly sunny skies with highs only in the mid- to upper 40's and lows in the mid-30's. By next Friday, skies will be partly cloudy but there is the possibility of a late showers. Highs will remain in the mid-40's.
