How warm has it been lately? Today's third consecutive 80 degree or higher reading at National Airport (DCA) marks the latest such occurrence since 1963. Add to that, if this morning's low of 67 at DCA stands, it will be a record for the highest minimum temperature for the date. Meanwhile, most in the area have topped out in the upper 70s to low 80s this afternoon despite a fair amount of mid and high level clouds throughout the day. Expect mild conditions through the remainder of the afternoon and into the evening.

Tonight: We will see partly to mostly cloudy skies overnight with temperatures dropping to the upper 50s in the suburbs and mid 60s in D.C. Winds will be light and variable.

Tomorrow: Thursday looks to be the last real warm day this week, and maybe until next spring. Expect highs to one again reach the upper 70s and low 80s throughout the area as skies generally stay mostly cloudy. A late afternoon shower, or isolated thunderstorm, is possible as a cold front slides through -- rain totals will generally be light wherever it falls. Winds may gust up to 20 or 25 mph, from the northwest, late in the day behind the front.
