Today (Monday): Not an easy forecast today. A wedge of cool air due to winds from the sea can seep into our northern suburbs. We will probably see a whole range of heights throughout the region, with the upper 70s to almost 80 around Fredericksburg, but perhaps just the mid- to upper 60s around Baltimore. In the immediate DC area, the mid-70s seems most likely for heights with partial sunshine. The wind is blowing from the east around 10 mph with some gusts as high as 15 mph possible. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy sky with a chance of light fog. Lower falls in the middle to the upper 50s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Showers are possible at any time, but most likely between noon and late afternoon. They should not be too much (generally less than a tenth of an inch) and we may have enough partial sunshine to push heights towards the mid 70s. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow night: Showers may continue in the evening, but then the sky will gradually clear. It gets noticeably cooler with low in the 40s as the wind comes in from the northwest around 10 mph with some higher gusts. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunny skies Wednesday and Thursday but it feels more like late March than late April. Highs both days struggle to reach 60. Wednesday night we can not rule out the development of frost late, as lows dive into the low to mid 30s in our colder areas and closer to 40 in the center. Thursday night it is only a few degrees milder. Confidence: Medium-High
Temperatures moderate some Friday and Saturday but it is still cooler than usual for the closing days of April. Highlights are the mid 60s Friday and the upper 60s Saturday. The night owls are mostly in their 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
A frontal system that moves into the region Sunday allows for periodic showers. However, it does not look like a leaching. Higher – in the mid 60s – continues to be cooler than usual (the low 70s). Confidence: Medium
