Gorgeous Saturday before rain returns Sunday

Rain could be heavy at times Sunday morning.

WASHINGTON — Saturday is the pick day of the weekend!

Quick Forecast:
Saturday: Mostly sunny. High: 60.
Saturday Night: Increasing clouds. Low: 45.
Sunday: Morning rain and showers. Late day clearing. High: 59.

Weather Story:

Saturday looks gorgeous. Highs will top out in the 50s with plenty of sun and lighter winds. All you'll need for Small Business Saturday shopping are your sunglasses.

Clouds will begin to increase late Saturday night ahead of rain to start your Sunday.  Most of the rain will fall between 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday.  Rain could be heavy at times.  Showers will clear most areas by around 6 p.m.   There will likely be rain at the start of the Commanders game, but the weather will gradually improve toward the end of the game. 

All wet weather looks to clear throughout the afternoon and the evening hours look dry, but cloudy. Despite the rain and clouds temperatures will still be mild in the mid to upper 50s.

The rainfall will be beneficial and thankfully not enough to cause any flooding concerns. We currently have a 0.33" rainfall deficit for the month of November, so the rain on Sunday should bring us back up to near or above average for November rainfall.
