By Brian Jackson

Generally pleasant, but no shaking shower chances

EXPRESS FORECAST

Today: Partly to mostly cloudy. Showers? Low 80s. | Tonight: Mostly cloudy, showers possible. 65-68. | Tomorrow: Partly sunny, 81-85. | A Look Ahead

FORECAST IN DETAIL

While a pesky upper low will be giving our northern neighbors grief this week, we'll be just far enough away to reap the benefits of some nice weather with temperatures and humidity below seasonal norms. We won't be completely scott-free though, as the slight chance of occasional showers -- mainly in the afternoon and early evening -- lasts through mid-week.

Today (Sunday): Today won't be quite as nice as yesterday, with more clouds (partly to sometimes mostly cloudy), an isolated morning shower, and a 40% chance of some afternoon showers or thundershowers. Highs should reach the low 80s. Expect a light wind from west/northwest at 5-10 mph, possibly becoming out of the south for a few hours ahead of the approaching cold front. Confidence: Medium

Tonight: Skies will continue to cloud over and we'll have more rain chances (40%) as the front makes its way through overnight. We won't be seeing any intense storms like the ones that rocked parts of the region on Friday, mostly just your run-of-the-mill summertime variety. Overnight lows will only reach the upper 60s and winds will be light. Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through your mid-week...

Tomorrow (Monday): We'll start the week off the right way. Partly sunny skies should last the day for most of us and we'll continue to experience enjoyable summer weather. Highs will reach the low-to-mid 80s and humidity levels will remain moderate. I cannot completely rule out a late day/evening thunderstorm but the chance will be low (around 20%). Breezes from the west will blow at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Night: The slight threat for showers and storms will continue overnight. Otherwise, a fairly nice night is in store. Look for partly cloudy skies overhead and temperatures dropping into the mid-60s downtown and the lower 60s in the suburbs. Winds overnight will be very light from the northwest. Confidence: Medium-High

A LOOK AHEAD

Another pretty nice Tuesday. Partly sunny skies during the day will drive temperatures again into the low-to-mid 80s. We'll see rain chances (40%) return towards evening and continue overnight. Confidence: Medium

Wednesday will be pretty similar to Monday and Tuesday as slight shower and storm chances stay in the forecast. Though it may be a bit cloudier than the preceding days, we'll stay quite comfortable with temperatures again reaching the lower 80s and humidity levels not too sticky. Enjoy! Confidence: Medium

Due to a relatively low dewpoint in the 50's, very little of the precipitation shown on today's radar is reaching the ground in the Metro area.

Those highs in the low 80s are looking remote with the high so far equal to the midnight temperature of 76.

@CapitalClimate

You're probably right. We should've gone 75-80 given the cloud cover. It came in earlier than most of us imagined capping temps.

Unless they blip up slightly through the evening, the highs are:
National 77
Dulles 78
BWI 80 (9:01 am)
