Forecast: Weather That Makes it Hard to Work

By Dan Stillman

Did your work productivity drop during the sunny and warm middle to end of last week? This week will again finish in fine form. And you may want to take advantage of the nice weather -- maybe a conveniently timed "sick" day? -- before clouds and the chance of showers return for the weekend. Then again, if you're an allergy sufferer, you may not have to fake the coughing and sneezing considering the pollen forecast.

TODAY

Becoming partly to mostly sunny. Low to mid 70s. Early-morning low clouds and fog should dissipate by late morning, giving way to a partly to mostly sunny day with highs in the low to mid 70s. Tonight, partly cloudy with lows in the mid 50s and a slight chance of a sprinkle or light shower.

Confidence: Medium-High

TOMORROW

Partly to mostly sunny. Upper 70s to near 80. Not much to say, other than another nice day is on the way. Mostly sunny skies should warm high temperatures into the upper 70s to near 80. Overnight, mostly clear with lows ranging from the low 50s in the burbs to the mid to upper 50s downtown.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend. See NatCast for tonight's game at Nationals Park.

A LOOK AHEAD

The good times roll for one more day, with partly to mostly sunny skies on Friday as highs reach the mid 70s to near 80. Friday night, clouds could be on the increase, and could produce a few showers, as the next cold front approaches. Confidence: Medium

The forecast for Saturday depends on the timing and juiciness of an approaching cold front. For now, I'll call for a mix of sun and clouds early as highs head for the 70s, then becoming mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and into Saturday night. Confidence: Low-Medium

It's unclear whether clouds and showers will linger into Sunday. At the very least, I think there's a chance we'll see sunshine emerge in the afternoon, which would probably boost highs into the 70s. However, if we stay mostly cloudy, then temperatures might not get out of the 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
