PM Update: Breezes to Slacken But Cold Remains

By Ian Livingston

Sunny Thursday with more below-average temperatures

Despite full sunshine, temperatures in the 50s combined with a chilly breeze to make this another day for at least some cold-weather gear. Winds should slowly weaken this afternoon and evening, but well below-average temperatures should continue through at least tomorrow.

Tonight: Slackening winds and clear skies will allow temperatures to become quite cold overnight. Look for temperatures dropping to near freezing in the normally coldest suburbs to around 40 in the warmest parts of downtown D.C.

Tomorrow: Thursday will be another dry, sunny and cool day. Temperatures will be similar to today, but perhaps a smidge warmer. Look for most places to rise into the mid-to-upper 50s. Winds will be light, from the north.

This is some good weather for running- Not too cold for short sleeves and not too hot for sweating!

This is some good weather for a 10-page history essay due in two days. (ugh.)

Pressure in McLean right now is 30.5," the highest it's been in the 40 days or so that I have been keeping track. No sign of rain on the horizon.
