Forecast: Overcast, Showery End to the Week
More sun, warmer weather expected this weekend
With the area of low pressure related to the remnants of Fay spinning to our south and west, we can expect plenty of clouds over the next 36 hours along with periodic showers -- especially to the west of DC. However, this precipitation won't put too much of a dent in the recent rainfall deficit. And odds are that, going into the weekend, we'll see warming temperatures and, save a shower on Saturday, mainly dry weather.
Overcast with showers. Mid 70s. You'll wake up to thick overcast skies today with temperatures in the mid 60s in the morning. Most of the day will feature periodic showers, mostly of the light to moderate variety; heavier rain will remain well west of DC. Winds from the east around 10 mph will hold highs in the mid 70s.
Overcast skies will linger this evening with occasional showers through the course of the night. Lows will drop to the mid 60s in most locations.
Mostly cloudy; showers. Near 80. Friday morning will feature overcast skies and occasional showers or drizzle. Some brightening of the sky may occur during the middle of the day when precipitation should become spotty. By late afternoon you may even see some patches of blue sky, boosting afternoon highs to near 80.
Evening plans Friday night? Plan on partly cloudy skies with a rogue shower unlikely though not totally out of the question. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s.
Despite the fact that a weak cold front will approach the area on Saturday, we can still expect a fair amount of sunshine, especially during the second half of the day. That being said, a shower is possible. It will be warmer, too, with highs rising to the mid- to-upper 80s depending on how much sunshine we see. Saturday night will be mostly clear and dry with lows near 70. Confidence: Medium
It's not too surprising that the sunniest day over the next few days -- Sunday -- will also be the warmest. Expect mostly sunny skies and comfortable humidity levels, with highs near 90 and overnight lows in the upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
The outlook for Monday -- Labor Day -- calls for partly to mostly sunny skies and a low chance of precipitation and warm afternoon highs in the upper 80s and overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s. Confidence: Medium
