Forecast: Decent Shopping Weather; Wet Sunday?
Black Friday to be warmest day this weekend
* Redskins Forecast: A Giant Question Mark | Noon: Winter Weather Joke *
Today's all-important shopping will go off unimpeded by weather as highs reach the pleasant low-to-mid 50s. Precipitation should not threaten the area until Sunday -- just in time to bother Thanksgiving travelers on their return home. Highs are back down into the 40s for Sunday into early next week, with precipitation chances continuing into Monday.
Increasing sun. Low-to-mid 50s. After yesterday's highs near 50, temperatures rise slightly higher today -- to the low-to-mid 50s. Breezes out of the west, though, may make it feel chillier than that. Lucky for shoppers, there's no rain to threaten your mad dashes. In fact, skies should go from fairly cloudy in the morning to partly sunny in the afternoon.
Tonight will be mostly clear, allowing temperatures to fall to the low 30s downtown. Suburbs like Leesburg and Olney will be cooler, into the upper 20s perhaps. Winds will be light from the northwest.
It sounds like Sunday could be wet. Any chance of snowflakes, too? Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Partly sunny. Upper 40s. A good deal of sun, light winds, and somewhat cool highs in the upper 40s will combine to make for a decent day. High clouds may stream in before sunset, representing the first signs of a storm system developing to our south.
Clouds continue to increase overnight, preventing temperatures from getting quite as cold as tonight. Look for mid 30s downtown and around 30 for folks outside the Beltway.
Mostly Cloudy. Chance of rain/snow showers. Low 40s. Rain is likely to develop, as early as late morning or as late as late afternoon. While highs here at the surface should reach the low 40s, temperatures higher up in the atmosphere may be cold enough for some snowflakes to mix in, especially north and west of D.C. Not the nicest of conditions for Thanksgiving travelers returning home during the latter part of the day.
Sunday night, rain is likely as temperatures hover above freezing, in the mid 30s to near 40. It won't be a good night to be out. ugh.
A LOOK AHEAD
Monday stays mostly cloudy and poses a continued chance of showers (40%). Highs in the mid 40s with gusty winds. Confidence: Medium
On Tuesday, brrr! Highs could only reach the upper 30s to low 40s -- and still quite breezy -- under mostly sunny skies. Air behind the exiting storm system will sure be chilly. Confidence: Medium
