11:16 pm
wednesday we'll get a push of warmer air. we see that warmer air already on the maps, but when you have the cold stuff coming behind it, you can fire up a line of strong storms. that's what we'll see. in the short term we're looking for temperatures in the 50s and by wednesday into the 60s as the last of the trapped cold air gets scoured out of town. there could be a few places tomorrow that don't hit the 50s north and east, but the rest of us should with a little sun, not a lot. that's the only tradeoff. today's high temperature 44 degrees, dulles 40, bwi thurgood marshall 40. we'll be well above that tomorrow. the last of the precipitation moving out of the northeast. we continue to have showers that exited the east coast, but we'll hang onto clouds for a bit longer. when the clouds try to break up, we might see areas of fog forming. i think those clouds will try to build back in and these showers will pass to our south and west. even if they came through
