PM Update: Autumn's Cool Down Takes a Break

By Ian Livingston

Near-perfect conditions expected Friday

Temperatures: Current area temperatures. Powered by Weather Bonk. Map by Google. Hover over and click icons for more info. Click and hold on map to pan. Refresh page to update. See map bigger on our Weather Wall.

Plenty of sunshine has helped warm us up into the mid and upper 70s today, or a few degrees above average (now near 70 degrees) in most locations. A cold front passing through the area this afternoon will mainly serve to switch the winds away from the south, allowing dew points to drop back off their "almost muggy" readings today.

Tonight: A second weak cold front will pass through overnight without much fanfare. Overall, skies will be mainly clear after some clouds early. Temperatures should drop to the lower 50s in the coolest suburbs to around 60 in D.C. Winds will switch to the north or northwest behind the front and remain light.

Tomorrow: Friday will feature delightful conditions to wrap up the work week. Humidity levels will drop a bit compared to today and skies will remain mostly sunny. Temperatures should rise into the mid and upper 70s as light winds blow from the north or northeast.
