DC, Maryland, Virginia Forecast – NBC4 Washington


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

Tuesday will be our last dry day for a while. Morning sun, then rising clouds and temperatures in the mid-60s are still ideal weather for flower viewing.

Keep an umbrella and warm layers handy for the rest of the week. Wednesday and Thursday have an 80% chance of rain.

Wednesday will be wet and cooler at times with highs in the 50s. Rain could start mid morning and continue into the afternoon and evening.

Thursday should be a warmer day, but periods of rain and the occasional thunderstorm could be a problem. The heaviest rain is expected before 2 p.m.

The first of several cold fronts will arrive Thursday evening and begin an extended period of cooler weather.

Friday will likely 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 are expected to be dry but with a cold northwest wind that will keep temperatures high in the 40s.

The bad news is that temperatures are expected to drop below freezing by Monday morning — even in downtown DC — which could end peak cherry blossom blooms.
