PM Update: Cool Weather to Continue Another Day

By Ian Livingston

Morning clouds, afternoon sun on Thursday

Morning clouds burned off quite well in most of the area, though those folks well south of D.C. have seen more in the way of gray skies. Temperatures are generally reaching into the mid 70s where sunshine is most dominant while sticking to the lower 70s where clouds are thicker. Readings will remain pleasant to cool during the rest of the afternoon and evening as clouds try to drift back north across the region.

Tonight: Moisture levels at cloud level begin to move up overnight, so skies will once again go mostly cloudy in many locations. Lows should hit the mid-to-upper 50s in the suburbs and the low 60s in the city. Winds will be light and from the east.

Tomorrow: Thursday should be something of a repeat of today. Early morning clouds should burn off throughout the day, and skies will be sunniest from D.C and to the north while it remains cloudier south of the city. Highs should reach the mid-to-upper 70s as winds switch to more of a southerly direction during the day.

Fox5 is saying that the Federal Government is encouraging workers to take the day off or telecommute tomorrow to alleviate congestion issues due to road closures for the September 11th memorial dedication at the Pentagon. Just thought you guys might want to know that.

The weather seems like it's going to be great tomorrow! Definitely window-opening weather. Can we have this (most) of the year? Of course, we have to reserve a few weeks for snow, but I'll take the mid 70s with low humidity and cloud cover any day of the week, month or year! :)

Too bad the Feds can't declare 9/11 a Federal holiday with the day off. All the Pentagon areas will be back open by PM rush, however.
