We're seeing a major swing of temperatures once again, but severe weather may be behind us.
A tornado watch issued for most of the D.C. region was canceled, and a severe thunderstorm warning for some counties in Maryland expired at 1:30 p.m.
Rain showers will continue until 8 p.m. or 9 p.m., NBC Washington Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer reported, and then temperatures will drop into the 30s overnight and winds will pick up, but severe winds aren't expected.
Ahead of the strong cold front moving into the region Monday afternoon, storms with the potential for damaging winds, hail, possible tornadoes and some brief periods of heavy rain moved through the area. Before the front arrived, temperatures rapidly climbed to around 70 degrees before falling back into the 50s.
After the front, winds will shift to the northwest and increase in strength.
Tuesday will be much cooler with sunshine and highs in the upper 40s. It will remain dry and cool into Saturday.
