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.
Dry conditions will compliment the weather these two days.
The next chance for rain will come later in the week.
Tropical Depression Two has formed in the Atlantic and could become the next tropical storm of the season by midweek.
Severe storms will rumble through parts of the Midwest, including Chicago, early Tuesday night.
Warm and humid air in place over much of the Midwest and Northeast at midweek will contribute to the risk of drenching, gusty and locally severe thunderstorms on Wednesday.
After temperatures briefly climb to typical midsummer levels, another cooldown will roll into the Midwest and expand to the East for the last part of July.
With the recent heat fading away, more relief will greet the Northwest by midweek in the form of rain.
