TODAY’S DAILY DIGIT
A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10. 5/10: Most areas get showers, but don’t glower or even look dour, it’s moisture for more flower power! EXPRESS FORECAST Today: Showers likely, light winds. Highs: 60-64
Tonight: Rain and drizzle, mainly calm. Lows: 47-51
Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy, showers developing late. Highs:Near 60. View the current weather conditions at The Washington Post headquarters. FORECAST IN DETAIL The return of showers knocks temperatures back to below normal over the next three days. For those of you less enthused about the rains, the good news is they are mostly light and intermittent for the next two days. But the bad news is that heavier rains begin Friday night and could linger well into Saturday. Mother Nature looks out for her own on Sunday with a mild, dry Mother’s Day. Today (Thursday): Mostly cloudy skies are with us from start to finish. Showers are likely to move into the area in the morning with the heaviest rains south of the city. Showers remain possible through the afternoon. Winds are very light from the east and highs are mainly in the lower 60s. Confidence: Medium-High Tonight: Showers remain light and widely scattered for much of the area, but to the south of the city more steady rains are possible overnight. Winds are nearly calm and lows are in the upper 40s except downtown, where it holds in the lower 50s. Confidence: Medium-High Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest updates.

Tomorrow (Friday): Although showers are possible at any time of the day, they should be very scattered in nature and rain amounts should be quite light (less than a quarter-inch). Southeast winds remain very light through the day. Highs hold in the upper 50s to lower 60s, more than 10 degrees below normal. Confidence: Medium-High Tomorrow night: The debate is still on as to how soon the more steady, heavier rains set in, but sometime during the night they should push into the area. Winds remain light coming out of the east. Lows hold in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Confidence: Medium Sunset in Washington, May 10, 2016.

Winds become brisk as the storm passes through later in the day. Highs hold in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Showers should taper off in the evening with some clearing late. Lows settle in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Confidence: Medium Skies start off clear to kick off a delightful Mother’s Day (Sunday) with highs warming to the upper 60s to lower 70s. A few clouds will pop up during the day and breezes pick up a bit, but it stays dry. Overnight skies clear again and lows drop to the upper 40s to lower 50s. Confidence: Medium Monday is another very fine spring day with mainly clear skies, light winds and highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Confidence: Medium
