WASHINGTON — This weekend will feel more like late winter, but next week we get an early taste of spring.
- Warming trend starts Monday
- Some areas southwest of D.C. may hit 70° by Tuesday
- Thursday and Friday are warmest days with 60s and 70s.
- We stay dry through Thursday
A large storm in eastern Canada has the Jet Stream dipping far into the eastern U.S.A. this past weekend and that allowed unseasonably cold air to dominate.
As we head into Monday, the storm in eastern Canada will pull away and this will allow the Jet Stream to lift north. Our surface winds will go more southwesterly and we warm up nicely with 60s by Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday will be the warmest days with 60s and some 70s across the region. Those highs are 15° to 20° above average.
