Forecast: Exceptional Eighties
Hopes for rain stay south with Fay
Today will again be sunny with highs in the 80s. And dry. The whole weekend will be dry in fact. And in the 80s. Is it getting repetitive yet?! We could certainly use a little moisture from, say, the remnants of a tropical storm? But Fay will stay well south, at least through early next week.
Mostly sunny. Low humidity. Mid 80s. Looks good, again. With light easterly winds and a mostly cloud-free sky, the sun will warm us to highs in the mid 80s. Humidity levels will again stay under control and not be too noticeable. Especially for August.
After dinner, clear skies will dominate as temperatures drop through the 70s, eventually dipping to the middle 60s overnight. Perhaps around 60 in places like Manassas or St. Mary's County. Winds will be light, out of the southeast.
Keep reading to find out just how nice the weekend will be. Does Fay stay out of the picture?
Mostly sunny, again. A touch more humid. Lower 80s. Again it will be nice. Maybe even a couple degrees cooler, with highs in the low 80s. You might notice a touch of humidity, though it will still be fairly low. Top things off with mostly clear skies and light easterly breezes? We have a winner!
Just a few clouds for your Saturday night. Lows won't be quite as cool as they have been. Upper 60s in the city. Mid 60s in many suburban locations.
Quite nice. More humid? Mid-to-upper 80s. Southerly breezes could kick up the humidity just a half-notch. Still, dew points in the mid 60s is not bad at all for August. It will feel pleasant and the sun will shine as highs make the mid to possibly upper 80s.
A moisture-starved front could bring an increase in clouds Sunday night but the chance of a shower is slim. Lows should be in the upper 60s in the suburbs to near 70 downtown.
A LOOK AHEAD
Monday should be partly sunny with a slight chance of a shower and temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s. It appears this stretch of quiet weather has impressive staying power! Confidence: Medium
On Tuesday, high pressure tries to keep moisture leftover from Tropical Storm Fay from working its way into the area. If it succeeds, then we're probably looking at a partly sunny day with highs in the 80s. Confidence: Low-Medium
