PM Update: Delightful Conclusion to Work Week

By Ian Livingston

Mostly sunny, a little warmer Saturday

Clouds and sun mixed with pleasantly cool temperatures to create another magnificent day across the area. Highs have reached the low 70s just about everywhere this afternoon, and temperatures will begin cooling through the 60s during the commute. If headed out this evening, a light jacket or sweater may be needed!

Tonight: Cooler temperatures than most of us have seen in many months will settle in tonight. Expect readings to hit the upper 40s in the north and west suburbs and low-to-mid 50s for the city and southeast suburbs. Overall, we stay partly cloudy overnight, but areas closest to the coast may go mostly cloudy with an onshore wind continuing.

Tomorrow: The broken record of beautiful days continues Saturday. Everyone should see plenty of sunshine and highs rising to the mid 70s. Northeast winds get even lighter tomorrow as high pressure dominates.

Ok, for some strange reason my WTOP Radio weather widget is indicating a coastal flood advisory near Baltimore and Annapolis, but also for "District of Columbia County" until 4 am Saturday. Did they take a quantum leap to another dimension because I don't think there's bad weather happening in our Universe right now, is there? I can hear crickets and Cicadas out there...

Tarkan, the floos advisory was due to the continued northeasterly winds. That was pushing some extra water into the rivers etc. Somewhat like a storm surge.
