    DC: No Signs of Lasting Warmth Just Yet

    The weather pattern through this weekend will bring temperatures fairly typical for this time of the year to Washington, D.C.

    Temperatures typically range from a morning low near 50 F to a high near 70 F.

    The pattern will feature a couple of days of cool weather and warm weather here and there.

    The next chance of rainfall is Friday afternoon as a system moves in from the Midwest. However, while there can be a couple of showers and a thunderstorm for outdoor activities, including Nationals and Orioles baseball, it will not be a washout.


    Temperatures are projected to reach well into the 70s despite the showers.

    Looking ahead, for folks with outdoor plans next week, the weather pattern has the potential to get very unsettled with a daily dose of showers and/or thunderstorms.

    A day or two of rain is also possible as a large storm develops over the eastern third of the nation and stalls. The pattern may also result in a several-day stretch of below-normal temperatures.

    It may not be until this large storm breaks down during early May when warmth will be a frequent visitor to the region.
