Happy Monday! We will continue to see dry conditions as we head into our Monday night. This evening’s lows will dip into the upper 40s and mid-50s. This evening, some patchy fog will be possible west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A warm front will slowly move through our area Tuesday morning. As this warm front moves through our area, we will see increased warm advection and moist air.

A few showers and thunderstorms are possible north and northwest of the D.C. Metro area. Models suggest the main threat of these storms will be small hail.
