The weekend's dreary conditions in Washington, D.C., will give way to a dry and warmer last day of March.

The slow-moving storm responsible for Sunday's soaking rain, wintry mix and gusty winds will clear the mid-Atlantic coast by Monday.

High pressure following the storm will promote a good deal of sunshine with temperatures returning to the 60s.

A gusty breeze will continue to blow but will not be as strong as the wind was on Sunday.

Further warming will occur Tuesday through Wednesday, allowing temperatures to approach the 70-degree mark on Tuesday before cracking that mark on Wednesday.

The next chance for rain will come later in the week.
