Today: Becoming partly sunny. Near 74-78. | Tonight: Partly cloudy. 56-63. | Tomorrow: Partly to mostly sunny. 80-85. | A Look Ahead


Flood watch, flood warning, severe thunderstorm watch, severe thunderstorm warning ... Adios. Borrowing from the Beatles...
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right...

Today (Saturday): We'll start off the day with a fair bit of cloudiness interspersed with some sunshine. The sunshine will increase in the afternoon with much warmer temperatures than yesterday. Highs should reach the upper 70s. A light breeze will blow from the northwest at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: A few clouds will accompany the pleasant temperatures overnight. Lows will dip down to the mid-to-upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the low 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...

Tomorrow (Sunday): Another nice day as we continue to dry out. Expect a good deal of sun. High temperatures should reach the low 80s with a light wind from the south. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Night: A weak cold front will slowly approach the region from the north, resulting in some cloud cover overnight. This will hold temperatures up, with lows from the low 60s in the cooler suburbs to the upper 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High


We'll have a weak front in our vicinity both Monday and Tuesday, which may help fire up a few storms each afternoon and evening. Storm chances increase from 25% Monday to 40% Tuesday as the front draws closer. Highs both days should be in the mid-80s, with a bit of humidity. Overnight lows will be in the 60s. Confidence: Medium

It is sooo nice to see the sun this morning!

what happened to the sun? Looks pretty gloomy at noon here in Kensington!

Still waiting for that nice day to start!

My apartment is very dark. I'm about to go back to sleep.

The back edge of the clouds is in Loudoun County, and slowly progressing eastward. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the sun makes it here in the next few hours, or this forecast will be a bust, except for the western suburbs...

Same script again next week. Front gonna stall out right over us and hang around all week with disturbances riding along it. This pattern is extremely frustrating.

Still cloudy in Ashburn. Some patches of blue to the west, but today looks to be more clouds than sun.

yay!... the sun has arrived here in North Bethesda. not unusual to have low clouds hang tough the morning after a rainy storm system comes through with no real winds behind it to sweep away low-level moisture. but still took a couple hours longer to break into sun than expected.

The "Nice Day!" Sun graphic is taunting me. Will you please delete it?

Clouds are slow to exit here [West Pike Arlington]. We are finally beginning to get a few peeks of sunshine.

Woops, never mind. The nice day graphic is for tomorrow.

I think next week's front stalls just to our north...meaning that the weather will be warm and muggy and the rain will primarily fall in afternoon and evening thunderstorms, unlike the recent soaking rains we got from a front stalled to our south.

Personally, I was grateful to have it NOT rain (even the high side of my yard is squelchy), but didn't mind having the sun take its time. This AM was ideal transplanting weather - tomorrow my friend is going to have to water the new plantings (except for the ajuga in the ditch!).
