FORECAST IN DETAIL
Did you hear that Disney plans to build a resort in the D.C. area? They may want to start shooting their promotional footage immediately, because this kind of weather -- dazzling sun, low humidity, and 70s and 80s for highs -- usually doesn't last long. The sweaty and sometimes stormy days of summer will be here soon enough. But will our resort-quality weather at least last through the holiday weekend?
Today (Wednesday): Today's weather?... take yesterday's blue skies, bright sun and low humidity, and add about 5 to 10 degrees. After another cool morning, but not quite as cold as yesterday morning, temperatures will climb steadily to afternoon highs around 75-80. Confidence: High
Tonight: Thanks to continued clear skies and light winds, temperatures fall off fast after the sun goes down. We're getting progressively warmer each night, but still we're talking lows in the upper 40s for some of the cooler suburbs, low-to-mid 50s downtown. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through Memorial Day weekend....
Tomorrow (Thursday): This is actually a tough paragraph to write because I need to come up with enough words to fill the height of the Nice Day graphic to the right, but there's really nothing different to say about tomorrow's weather compared to today, except that highs will be a few degrees warmer -- into the low 80s. Hey look! I made it! Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Fortunately this paragraph doesn't require a graphic, so I'm free to be brief: Clear and not as cool with highs in the mid-50s (cooler burbs) to near 60 (downtown). Confidence: High
The good times continue Friday with sunny skies, highs in the mid-80s and just a touch of humidity. Mostly clear Friday night with lows in the upper 50s (burbs) to low 60s (downtown). Confidence: Medium-High
The holiday weekend forecast is still somewhat uncertain. But as of now Saturday, Sunday and Monday all look to be partly sunny with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s and a chance (too early for me to put a percentage on it) of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Confidence: Low-Medium
