tweetable. you can see they need another day but when they are referred to as being at peek, it means 70% of the blossoms are out. it looks like 50 to me but it doesn't take much to get them going and craig actually said that during the blizzard of 2016 he would shut his eyes and dream of the cherry blossom festival to help him get through the winter. so yes, it is gone fast and now it's cherry blossom time and the next few days are going to promote a lot of you to get out there and enjoy it. the workweek is going to end with a little bit of rain. we think that will be primarily on friday morning. this frontal boundary that's going to come through will get us cooler by the time we get into friday and saturday. but easter weekend still looking really great. it's not going to be as warm as the next two days will be, it's a bargain for march. sunday also dr,
there may be some rain late at night into the first part of monday and that may affect the white house easter egg roll. that is something we'll be watching. but tonight we're watching temperatures stay a little bit warmer than they were last night. last night at this time we already had places below 32 degrees. everybody in the 50s tonight with the exception of annapolis at 49. won't be quite as cold tonight. winds did get a little bit breezy this afternoon and there's still a little bit on the breezy side but follow the direction of the arrows. they're coming up from the south and that means we're going to be staying on the warm side. a high of 73 degrees, i don't think we're going to break the record unless something goes really wrong with my forecast. it's a real old record, 93 degrees set in 1907. we're mentioning this because that's the all-time high for that month of march. tomorrow that 73 is going to feel great. thursday also about 76 degrees and again we're thinking that an
into friday will really be holding off so that thursday is a great day to get down and enjoy. we've got a little bit of snow and rain shower activity moving up to our north. we will see a little bit of this high cloud cover coming in later tonight and tomorrow. high, thin clouds around for a beautiful sunrise. bermuda high. it's literally a high pressure system centered over bermuda that warms up us nicely. we see this pattern in the summer and when we get it in march and april it usually is a comfortable temperature. here is that rain we mentioned will be coming in early on friday. but i think the afternoon clears out nicely and we're back to sunday shy and breezy conditions and temperatures pretty decent. overnight we have a low temperature expected of 48 in dc, 45 for dulles, 48 for quantico, 46 for frederick and again a few high clouds coming in no where near as cold as it was. you can see some of those clouds behind me and a few high clouds
what you'll notice is that lovely warm breeze, that temperature as the warmth returns to the area. 73 for quantico, 66 for annapolis, a little cooler near the water. leonardtown 72 and gaithersburg 71 degrees. a look at your weekend, still on the dry side and we think high pressure is going to continue to rule on saturday. nice easter, but this is the system that we'll be watching that will come in, we think very late sunday overnight and bring us perhaps a little bit of rain for easter monday. your fox 5accuweather 7-day forecast. two days in the 70s and a run of days in the 60s but every single one of those days is above average for this time of year. a little bit of rain friday, maybe a little rain monday and our temperature on tuesday right around 62 degrees. so pollen ought to be flying tomorrow so everybody take your
antihistamines. >> thank you sue. >> former skins running back alfred morris has a new team, we're going to tell you which team it is and you're probably not going to like it. coming up next. >> u.s. airports on heightened alert after those terror attacks in brussels. as you can imagine the new travel concerns hitting travel stocks. the europe markets not moving that much. a sign of resolve or complacency. meanwhile you'll have enough money to make your golden years golden? you're not alone. a new survey showing only one in five workers very confident that they'll have enough savings to retire confidentbly. and starbucks is stepping up to help feed the needy. the company participating in a food sharing program that will allow to donate 100% of its unused food
