WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Scattered showers this evening and turning cooler tonight
We made it into the 80s for a second day in a row — not too much like your typical mid-April day in these parts. A cold front is about to change that. You have probably noticed a wind shift already if you have been out and about. Showers and some storms into the evening are on the front edge of a cooler night and more springlike conditions tomorrow.
Through tonight: A cold front is moving through the region in the evening. There will be a scattered shower and storm risk through sunset or so, especially I-95 and east. Overnight, it’s cooler with lows settling across the 40s under partly cloudy skies.
Pollen update: The promised spike in pollen registered in the last 24-hour count. D.C. area tree pollen is high — up to 1,171.92 grains per cubic meter before any rain, jumping out of the 400s the last two days! Grass pollen is also moderate/high.
