Temperatures below average for the rest of the week.

A few clouds will linger into Tuesday and Wednesday. A few showers may develop overnight into the early morning hours Wednesday. While some areas in the higher elevations may see light snow, most here in the valley will be a few flurries. In the District and around the metro will mainly see light rain.

A bit of sunshine returns Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. Highs will attempt to rise in the middle 50’s, but that falls to the wayside as we head into Friday with a few extra clouds. Warm air begins to kick up late overnight Friday and give us a few showers Saturday.

Temperatures now through Saturday will be below average for this time of year. Into the start of next week, we see temperatures grow closer to the normal. The mercury will gradually rise into the 60’s with a possible sprinkle Sunday before seeing a mix of sun and clouds Monday.
