Forecast: From Clouds & Rain to Cold
Wet the better part of the next 72 hours
In what feels like one of the cloudiest early Novembers in recent memory, we've got plenty more of it on tap over the next several days. An area of low pressure approaching from the west and a developing coastal low will bring decidedly rainy conditions today, a relative lull of sorts on Friday, and more wet weather again Friday night into Saturday. High pressure comes to the rescue on Sunday -- clearing, cooling, and drying out the area for the start of next week.
Overcast and rainy. Low 50s. As we've been alluding to for several days now, today is most certainly an umbrella day. There will be frequent periods of rain throughout the day, with the heaviest probably falling from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. A thick blanket of clouds will hold high temperatures in the low 50s again today.
Skies remain overcast tonight with the steady rain ending, but a few showers or areas of drizzle can't be ruled out. Temperatures should remain steady around 50 degrees.

Mostly cloudy, shower? Mid 60s. While conditions on Friday won't be nearly as rainy as today you should still plan on mostly cloudy skies with occasional scattered showers; some places may even remain mostly dry. Warmer air surging north ahead of a cold front will boost high temperatures significantly to the mid 60s, though.
You're probably going to want to bring an umbrella with you if you head out Friday night, however, as showers, and perhaps a steadier period of rain, are a good bet. Overnight lows will remain mild -- in the mid 50s.
Unfortunately, we'll hold onto overcast skies on Saturday along with a good chance for periods of rain, especially during the first half of the day. It will stay on the mild(er) side, with high temperatures near 60 degrees. A potent cold front will come sweeping through later in the day, likely drying us out by the early evening hours, quickly dropping temperatures 10+ degrees and bringing gusty winds from the northwest. We'll see partial clearing and blustery conditions Saturday night, with overnight lows dropping to the mid to upper 30s in colder spots to near 40 downtown. Confidence: Medium
Sunday's weather will be dramatically different from Saturday's as strong high pressure builds in behind the aforementioned cold front. Expect abundant sunshine, blustery northwesterly winds and much cooler highs only near 50. In fact, it may not make it out of the upper 40s in some spots! Clear and cold during the overnight with lows near 30 in places like Damascus and Vienna to the upper 30s downtown. Confidence: Medium-high
Back to work Monday will deliver us quintessentially brisk fall weather; despite plenty of sunshine, high temperatures will struggle to make it past the upper 40s once again. Clear and cold Monday night with lows ranging from the upper 20s to the mid 30s. Even cooler weather is possible on Tuesday with a chance of snow flurries. Confidence: Medium-High
