Forecast: Fantastic Foreseeable Future
By Brian Jackson
A stretch of very nice weather takes hold of our region today, just in time to salvage the remainder of the long weekend. This sunny, warm weather will dominate the mid-Atlantic landscape through the coming week. Still, for all of our fortunes, we should keep a wary eye to the south, as we could see some tempestuous weather next weekend as the remnants of the tropical dynamic duo, Gustav and Hanna, may affect our area.
Sunny, very warm but less humid. 87-90. We'll be moving back into the pattern that's kept us mainly dry for weeks today. High pressure builds in behind last night's frontal passage and skies will clear out as a result. My midday we'll have mostly sunny skies and our temperatures will be on their way into the upper 80s. Winds will be light, and out of the north at around 5 mph.
Overnight, starry skies will prevail and we'll cool down quite nicely. Temperatures should back into the low 60s in the district, and 50s in surrounding areas. Winds will continue out of the north but will likely become calm by early morning.
Keep reading for the forecast through next week. See NatCast for today's game. We will post the latest on the tropics midday.
Sunny and pleasant. 85-88. You couldn't ask for better weather to help you celebrate a much needed day off on Labor Day. While we'll reach the upper 80s again, humidity levels will be very low so it will be nice and comfortable outdoors today. Sunny skies will greet you all day long. Winds will blow in from the northeast at 5 - 15 mph.
Monday night holds great sleeping weather to get you ready to go back to work after a long weekend. We'll cool off nicely as overnight lows will dip to near 60 downtown and mid 50s in the cooler suburbs under continued clear skies. Light northerly winds will diminish through the night.
The forecast for Tuesday through Friday looks to be quite pleasant, and consistent. Typical summer humidity will begin to return, but we won't see any oppressive heat come our way. Expect mostly sunny skies during the daytime hours this week with highs each day hovering around 90 degrees. Our nighttime weather will stay consistent as well with clear skies and lows in the mid to upper 60s. We'll keep our eyes to the south as moisture from Gustav and Hanna could begin to affect the region next weekend. Confidence: Medium-High
