DC Area Forecast: Heavy But Welcome Rain Today

DC Area Forecast: Heavy But Welcome Rain Today

A somewhat subjective rating of the time of day, on a scale of 0 to 10.

5/10: A mid-range 5 for those who hate and those who celebrate today’s rainy state.

  • Today: Rainy, windy. Highs: 48-55.
  • Tonight: The rain will end late. Minimums: 45-55.
  • Tomorrow: Partly sunny, breezy. Highs: 55-63.

Vigorous low pressure traveling into the Ohio Valley along a cold front is causing severe flooding in the Mid-Atlantic today. This will bring about 1 to 2 inches of rain needed tonight. The bad weather clears up Wednesday, also setting up a sunny and seasonable Thanksgiving.

The calm weather should continue into Black Friday, but the weekend could see some increase in cloud cover, cooler weather and perhaps a period of rain.

Today, Tuesday): Showers will develop this morning from southwest to northeast. Rain may be moderate to heavy at times this afternoon into the evening, so please allow additional time for travel. Highs range from the upper 40s in northwest areas to the mid 50s southeast of the Beltway. East winds at 5 to 15 mph, gusting to 25 to 35 mph, add to the chill. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: The rain continues during the afternoon hours and ends late in the evening. It is mostly cloudy and windy after the rain ends. Winds are coming from the south and then southwest at 5 to 15 mph with gusts to 20 to 25 mph at times. Confidence: Medium-High

thanksgiving thursday We should finally see mostly sunny skies with highs within a few degrees of 55. It may still be a little breezy but overall a pretty typical late November day. Thursday night features mostly clear skies with lows between 30 and 40 degrees. Confidence: High

Friday It looks mostly sunny in the morning, but we could change to partly cloudy in the afternoon as high temperatures range from near 50 degrees in our coldest suburbs to the mid 50s in the city. Friday night will also be partly cloudy with lows in the low 30s. Confidence: Medium

The end weekend November is leaning colder to colder than normal. Saturday sees highs in the 40s to near 50. After lows in the 30s and 40s, Sunday should be a little milder with highs likely topping out at 50 in most areas. Low pressure developing to the south could lead to a period of rain, but the timing is uncertain and models have partly ruled out that possibility. Confidence: Low-Medium
