PM Update: Cold Front Poised to Dislodge Warmth
Mostly sunny and much cooler Friday
A cold front now approaching the western sections of the area will move through this afternoon and evening, sweeping the warmth of recent days out. Prior to cool air arriving, highs have once again reached the upper 70s and low 80s despite mostly cloudy conditions.
Clouds will continue to plague the region for the rest of the day, and a few isolated showers will be possible before the front moves through entirely. After the front passes, briefly gusty winds from the northwest may occur during the evening as temperatures fall.
Tonight: The front will take its time moving away from the region, so mostly cloudy skies will remain for much of the night before some more clearing toward morning. Look for readings to drop to near 50 in the cooler suburbs and into the mid 50s in D.C. North winds will blow around 5 to 10 mph overnight.
Tomorrow: Some clouds may still be around early on Friday, but skies will trend mostly clear during the day. Temperatures will be much cooler than recently as highs struggle to reach the low and mid 60s across the area. A northerly breeze will add to the chill in the air.
