DC Area Forecast: A Saturday to go out, showers possible Sunday


A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

7/10: It’s hard not to love a mild Saturday in January, even in this strangely warm month.

  • Today: Partly to mostly sunny. Highlights: Mid 1950s.
  • This evening: Partly cloudy. Lows: Mid 30s to near 40s.
  • Tomorrow: Mainly cloudy. Afternoon showers. Highs: Over 40 to low 50s.

Yesterday Washington was on its way to a top-five warmest January on record. There has only been one day with an average temperature lower than normal for the date. We won’t be adding this weekend to that very small list, but it’s not impossible we’ll try before the month ends. Before cold air returns, temperatures in the city should try to climb above 50 both days this weekend.

Today (Saturday): It only seems appropriate to end this warm January with a warm weekend. Today’s temperatures are close to 10 degrees above average. Add the sun and we’ll continue to see some blooming crocuses and other midwinter oddities. High temperatures should be in the mid 50’s in most places. The wind is from the south-southwest at around 10 mph. Confidence: medium to high

This evening: Occasionally some clouds float by. We should still see a lot of stars. Not as cold as recent nights, with lows mostly in the mid and above 30s. Confidence: Medium to High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Don’t be fooled by morning breaks in the clouds – raindrops are a good bet during the day. In the course of the afternoon and early afternoon, some showers are likely to come from the west. Most of this activity is light, but it can thwart all plans, especially west of the city. Given the clouds and the occasional shower, temperatures will remain somewhat contained, probably within a few degrees 50. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow evening: We continue to see a chance for some raindrops, mainly light, while a low pressure area develops off the coast to our southeast. Temperatures should drop to lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Confidence: Average

Showers can linger Monday morning as weak low-pressure scoots through the coast. We should try to do some tidying up between noon and noon. Especially when a cold front passes, it can get very windy. Before that, the highs are in the mid-50s or so. Confidence: average

Colder air begins to push in Tuesday. It is uncertain whether some precipitation is trying to work its way into the area or whether it will remain dry. This is the beginning of a period where we may see some wintry weather threats emerging. Highs are around 40s or in the low 40s. Confidence: Average

A daily rating of the probability of at least an inch of snow in the next week, on a scale of 0 to 10.

1/10 (): Nothing looks attractive yet, but it will become more favorable for wintry weather in the middle to late next week.
