Tonight will be dry but cloudy. Overnight lows will fall into the mid 30s to around 40. Have the umbrella and rain coats tomorrow with showers in the forecast. A shower is possible in the morning but a steady period of light rain will likely begin around 10 to 11 AM and wind down during the afternoon. Temperatures will be steady in the upper 40s, so it will be a chilly rain. If you are headed to the National Mall for the Inauguration, small compactable umbrellas are now allowed but large, golf like umbrellas are not. However, if you are in the ticketed area umbrellas are still not permitted so bring a poncho or rain jacket.
Friday night will be dry but thick fog will develop. Anticipate dense fog Saturday morning, especially in the suburbs. Saturday morning will also be chilly with temperatures in the 40s, so you’ll want a warm jacket for the Women’s March. Skies will stay cloudy throughout the day on Saturday but temperatures will be a good ten degrees above normal.
A nor’easter will impact the area Sunday into Monday. A few light showers are possible Sunday morning but rain is most likely during the second half of the day. Winds will really pick up on Monday with rain throughout the day. Rain will be heavy at times as well with temperatures falling into the low 40s throughout the day. Between Sunday and Monday 1-3” of rain is possible across the area. As this system pulls away Monday night into early Tuesday some wet snowflakes may mix in west of the DC Metro; the ground will be too warm for any accumulation. Tuesday will be blustery and cool with highs in the low 50s. Download the NBC Washington App for the latest forecast updates on this active forecast.
