Forecast: Rain Looms at Week's End
Tip top weather through tomorrow
Our stellar series of excellent D.C. days should carry on for at least two more today and tomorrow. Comfortable highs in the 70s and lots of sunshine will prevail through midweek. But I'm hearing more from District dwellers and suburbanites alike about increasing allergy problems due to dry weather. Sure enough, the rain gauge at National Airport has not seen measurable precipitation for 11 days now. This should change Thursday and perhaps in a big way with rain persisting into early Saturday.
Tonight, partly cloudy with lows in the 50s suburbs to lower 60s for the interior. Very cool and comfortable breezes yet again.

Last Day of the Nice Stuff. Low to mid 70s. Comfortable northeast breezes will bring in some clouds at times, but again we are looking at a great early autumn day with highs in the lower to middle 70s.
Wednesday night offers up partly cloudy skies, comfortable breezes, and lows in the 50s to lower 60s once more.
Thursday is expected to see a cloud canopy envelop the area. The loss of dominant sunshine will only allow temperatures to peak in the upper 60s to lower 70s, and we could see the rains arrive as early as mid to late afternoon (30%). Thursday night should feature our needed rains (60% likelihood) with lows dropping to around 60 (just below in the suburbs, just above in the city). Confidence: Low-Medium
Friday should feature more clouds, periods of rain, or just showers at times. Probability of rain is about 60% and this should increase as the weather models get more confident on this story. We should see highs in the upper 60s to around 70. More showers are slated for Friday night with clouds and lows again near 60. Confidence: Low-Medium
The last weekend of September (can you believe it?) could start with some lingering clouds and showers from the late-week weather system, but the current indications continue to favor clearing skies during the day on Saturday and then a decent weather revival for Sunday. Highs should be in the middle to upper 70s and lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Confidence: Low-Medium
