Megan James' Forecast | Much needed rain and cool temperatures

D.C.-area forecast: Cloudy and damp early this week before crisp, dry fall weather takes over

There is a cold front off to the west and as this progresses east, showers will begin to overspread the region. However, a much larger cool down comes Monday night/Tuesday morning as lows drop to the mid 40's.

Looking at Tuesday, she said: "We start off tomorrow with some brightness from time to time". A wall-to-wall blue sky remains into the afternoon as highs reach the middle to upper 60s.

Back here locally, the bulk of the rain showers hold off until Monday morning, but mainly west of the 495-corridor.

Tue: High: 73 Low: 49 Sunny and breezy.

Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Clouds will gradually break for some clearing overnight.

Fri: High: 59 Low: 41 Sunny.

Thursday: A 20 percent chance of showers.

Temperatures will peak in the mid twenties to low thirties with partly cloudy and foggy conditions expected for the rest of the week. This allowed for showers and thunderstorms to develop this afternoon, providing some relief for a few of us. It will be accompanied by fresh to strong southerly winds, which will veer southwesterly as the rain clears on Friday evening and night.

While average temperatures have been in the region of 16 to 17c over this past weekend, this coming Saturday and Sunday could bring with it temperatures as low as 12c.
