    DC to Have a Damp End to the Week

    Most days through the weekend will be warm around Washington, D.C., but a damp, cool day is in store part of the region on Friday.

    The typical high for the city the next few days is 63 F.

    High temperatures will generally be in the 60s through Sunday.


    A damp breeze off the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean could keep temperatures in the 40s and 50s in some areas to the north and east.

    According to Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson, "The easterly flow setup on Friday is very common for the mid-Atlantic during April into May."

    In addition to some moisture from the Atlantic, remnants of thunderstorms from the Midwest will reach the area in the form of rain.

    A batch of rain is forecast to move through Friday morning with another batch due in later Friday into Friday night. Thunderstorms could survive the trip in from the Midwest during Friday night, where there could be some gusty winds and downpours.

    South of the corridor of moisture, it will be mainly free of rain and will feel like summertime.

    Dry air is projected to sweep into the area over the weekend on brisk winds from the west and northwest.
