Temperatures will be above average for the rest of this week and the District will get a break from the wintry weather that has recently battered the area.

A second batch of snow arriving from the Midwest has its eyes on the interior Northeast for Tuesday, but it will bypass Washington, D.C.

Temperatures will reach the low to middle 50s through the middle of this week then climb into the 60s Friday.

Rain and thunderstorms will accompany the mild weather Friday, giving the area a taste of spring.

With the rain will come the potential for minor flooding. Piles of snow will clog storm drains and the uneven weight of melting snow can lead to roof failures.
