Dry and unseasonably warm Wednesday

Showers are possible again Friday and for parts of the weekend.

WASHINGTON — Friday we are watching rain and maybe a little wintry mix. Cooler for the weekend.

Quick Forecast:
Wednesday: Cloudy and milder, some showers. High: 62.
Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy and mild. Low: 49.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy. High: 56.

Weather Story:

The evening commute looks mainly dry. On average this time of year we should be in the low 50s but highs today will make it into the upper 50s and low 60s. A few peeks of sunshine will be possible for some later today. Soak it up while you can because more wet weather is on the way.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy and a touch breezy early on. By the afternoon clouds will try to break up but won't have enough time to clear before more rain develops. Scattered showers move in Thursday night and will carry over into Friday.
