DC, Maryland, Virginia Weather Forecast – NBC4 Washington

Washington, DC’s beloved cherry trees have now reached the peak of flowering, and it’s time to catch a glimpse before the rainy, cooler weather returns.

Tuesday will be our last dry day in a while. Morning sunshine, then rising clouds and temperatures in the mid 60’s are still great weather to see flowers.

Keep an umbrella and warm layer on hand for the rest of the week. Wednesday and Thursday have an 80% chance of rain.

Wednesday gets wet and cooler at times with heights in the 50s. Rain could begin in the middle of the morning and continue throughout the afternoon and evening.

Thursday is expected to be a warmer day, but periods of rain and occasional thunderstorms can be a problem. The heaviest rain is expected before 2 p.m.

The first of several cold fronts arrives Thursday night and begins a long stretch with cooler weather.

Friday will probably be the last day above 60 ° until the middle of next week. There is also a 40% chance of passing showers.

Storm Team4 says Saturday will be cloudy, cool and windy at times with a passing shower in the afternoon.

Sunday and Monday should be dry, but with a cool northwest wind that will keep high temperatures in the 40s.

The bad news is that temperatures are likely to drop below freezing on Monday morning – even in downtown DC – which could bring the cherry blossoms to a head.
