A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10. 5/10: Colder again, I wanted a 10. Clouds likely to roll in, just can’t win. EXPRESS FORECAST Today: Becoming cloudy, light breezes. Highs: 50-54
Tonight: Light rain arrives late. Lows: 44-48
Tomorrow: Steadier rains through the day. Highs: 58-62 View the current weather conditions at The Washington Post headquarters. FORECAST IN DETAIL Today is not nearly as dreary as last Sunday, but the wind off the Atlantic caps our temperatures, as do increasing clouds. For all those rooting for rain, Friday is your day! Saturday could "fool" us and clear up quickly, but Sunday is the best bet for sun and outdoor activities. Today (Thursday): A shift to light winds from the east brings in cooler, humid air, and clouds should increase over the area. Highs struggle with the lack of sun, and most of the area only reaches the lower 50s. Confidence: Medium-High Tonight: Clouds thicken in the evening, and a few raindrops could begin to fall. Showers become more widespread later at night but remain light and intermittent. Winds are barely noticeable from the southeast. Lows hold in the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend… Tomorrow (Friday): Rains are likely to fall fairly steadily throughout the day and at times could be briefly heavy. A rumble of thunder is possible during the late morning to early afternoon, but nothing severe. Rain decreases in intensity by late afternoon as winds remain light from the southeast. Despite the clouds and rain, highs should still manage to reach the upper 50s and possibly lower 60s. Confidence: Medium-High Tomorrow night: Showers are likely to linger through much of the night but are very light. Winds go calm and lows hold in the mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: Medium-High A LOOK AHEAD Saturday should see a gradual improvement to start out April. Clouds slowly break up as the day progresses. If enough sun breaks through, the area could reach the lower 60s but most likely settles for upper 50s. The night is clear and on the chilly side with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s outside the Beltway and mid-40s inside. Confidence: Medium Skies are much more open Sunday but a few clouds pop up during midday. Highs reach the upper 50s to lower 60s. Overnight lows are again cool, with lows ranging through the 40s. Confidence: Medium-High Monday should see a sunny start but a cloudy finish as the next rain event approaches the region. Highs reach the upper 50s to lower 60s. Confidence: Medium
