Forecast: Commencement Worthy Weather

By Jason Samenow

The sun will shine down on the beaming new graduates at George Washington, Georgetown, George Mason, and Catholic Universities today (and all Washingtonians). Tomorrow's weather won't be so radiant, but a shower or two shouldn't dampen too many spirits.


Mostly sunny. Increasing clouds late. Mid 70s. Everyone should enjoy today's weather. Pleasantly warm temperatures and sunshine will make up for yesterday's gloominess. Afternoon temperatures will reach the mid 70s. By evening, you may notice some increase in cloud cover.

Overnight, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with just a 20% chance of a shower as a weak disturbance passes by to our north. Lows drop to 55 downtown and near 50 in the suburbs.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast for Sunday into early next week.


Scattered showers. Near 70. A more vigorous disturbance will swing through the region tomorrow afternoon, likely triggering some showers and/or thunderstorms. It won't rain the whole day and the sun could pop out from time to time, but most of us will get wet at some point. The best chance for showers is from 12:00-4:00 p.m.

After dark, skies gradually clear. Lows drop from 43-48 (suburbs-city).


Monday should be beautiful. Conditions will be a lot like today with lots of sunshine and high temperature in the mid 70s. Confidence: Medium-High

Rain showers are likely to return Tuesday, with high temperatures 65-70. Confidence: Medium
