Forecast: Outstanding Outdoors

By Jason Samenow

This holiday weekend gifts us a trio of nice days, with beautiful sunshine throughout. Temperatures will reach the upper 70s to near 80 each afternoon, which is about 6-10 degrees above average. What a great time to spend some time outside. This could well be the last weekend it's warm enough to wear shorts until the spring...

TODAY (SATURDAY)

Sunny, 75-79. You may want a light jacket or sweatshirt early in the morning, with temperatures in the mid 40s to the low 50s. But the sun will go to work quickly, with temperatures climbing above 70 by noon. By the mid-to-late afternoon, a few spots will get near 80-- perfect weather for the Taste of Georgetown. Winds will be light.

Clear skies overnight, with lows from the mid 40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through the week. See SkinsCast for the outlook for tomorrow's game.

TOMORROW (SUNDAY)

Spectacular sunshine. Near 80. Once again, a crisp morning will yield to a sunny, warm afternoon. Temperatures will max out near 80, with light winds.

Clear skies overnight, with lows from the upper 40s in the cooler 40s to the mid 50s downtown.

Confidence: High

A LOOK AHEAD

Both Columbus Day and Tuesday will remain sunny, warm, and dry -- with highs around 80, and overnight lows generally in the 50s. Confidence: Medium-High

Perfect - I have to work today. Oh well, at least there's no wind!
