Some of this week's weather in the D.C. area might have you thinking it's already June.

Monday's high temperature is expected to be about 75 degrees, and forecasters think that the next few days will be even warmer. The National Weather Service predicts that temperatures could hit 82 degrees at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on Tuesday, 86 degrees on Wednesday and 81 degrees on Thursday.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will also see quite a bit of sun, forecasters said. The normal high temperatures for the week at Reagan Airport are in the mid 60s, while the record high temperatures are in the low 90s.

But by the end of the week, the unusually warm temperatures in the region will come to an end. According to the Weather Service, there's a chance of rain on Thursday afternoon and evening as well as on Friday. The weekend is likely to be mostly sunny, but temperatures will likely be in the high 50s and low 60s.

This week's temperatures will be friendlier to warm-weather fans than the weather from two weeks ago. On the last Monday in March, the high temperature was not even 40 degrees at Reagan, and there was snow.
