A strong cold front is heading for the east coast and it will cause periods of rain and thunderstorms in the DC metro region this morning and some of the rain will fall heavily at times. The soaking and beneficial rains of today will make for a "green explosion" this weekend as lawns will suddenly take on a nice dark green appearance. The front will slide off the east coast tonight and drier air will filter into the region just in time for the weekend. Both weekend days should feature some sunshine and seasonably cool conditions with highs not far from 65 degrees. It’ll turn milder early next week, but a couple of fronts could bring us a couple of showers by mid-week.
By late next week, it looks like there will be another strong cold front closing in on the east coast and it will likely generate another significant rain event for the East - perhaps including more strong thunderstorms. Following that end-of-the-week frontal passage, the overall weather pattern could turn chilly again in the East. Also next week, there will be another snowstorm for the places that got hit this week (e.g. Denver, Minneapolis).
