Forecast: Another Bundle-Up Day, Then Warmer

By Josh Larson

Wind chills in the 20s today; highs near 50 by Sunday.

Bundle up for another chilly day today as winds from the northwest at 15-25 mph, despite abundant sunshine, will keep high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s. However, a milder flow of air will bring high temperatures back into the mid 40s on Friday (along with the chance of some showers late in the day) and mid to upper 40s Saturday. Then, the 50s are within reach for Sunday into early next week.


Sunny. Breezy. Mid to upper 30s. The morning will start off quite cold, with temperatures ranging from the upper teens to low 20s. Though there will be plenty of sunshine throughout the day, highs will only rise to the mid 30s, maybe upper 30s downtown. Winds from the northwest at 15-25 mph will make it feel even colder -- with wind chills in the low to mid 20s at times.

Partly cloudy overnight with lows generally from 20-25.


Becoming cloudy. Chance of showers late. Mid 40s. Though we may see some sun in the morning, clouds will increase as the day wears on ahead of an approaching disturbance. Depending on how quickly it clouds up, high temperatures will likely hit the mid 40s. Some scattered showers are possible from the late afternoon on, though they may hold off until the evening hours.

Mostly cloudy with a few showers Friday night and milder overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s.

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend and into next week.


Mostly sunny and pleasant. Mid 40s to near 50. High pressure will build back into the region for the weekend, providing fair weather and light winds.

Expect a lot of sunshine on Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 40s, followed by mostly clear skies Saturday night with lows in the mid 20s in areas like Reston and Damascus to near freezing downtown.

Mostly sunny skies should continue on Sunday with highs near 50, perhaps into the low 50s. Sunday night, most spots should see lows from 30-35.


Monday is expected to feature times of clouds and sun with considerably milder high temperatures making a run for the 60-degree mark. Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers Monday night and lows in the mid 40s.

A rather organized storm system may pay the D.C. area a visit on Tuesday with overcast skies and periods of rain possible along with highs in the 50s and overnight lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Some sunshine may return again on Wednesday along with high temperatures likely in the upper 40s to low 50s with overnight lows in the 30s.
