Above normal temperatures are what to expect heading into the workweek

Today's Forecast

We will see a cold start for our Monday with lots of sunshine and lighter winds but will begin to warm up until the 40’s. Clouds will start to increase as we head into our Tuesday as two storm systems will pass through our area. Models show that we could see light showers around the D.C. Metro area, where the rest of us looks to stay dry. Wednesday looks dry, but we are tracking two low-pressure systems. The first will be off the Great Lakes, which will remain towards the north and will most likely not affect our area. The second is off of the North Carolina coast. Models show the system will continue moving south which could bring showers to the D.C. Metro. High pressure will begin to work its way into the area Thursday, bringing cooler conditions. The following system will approach Friday night into Saturday.
