FORECAST IN DETAIL
Saturday and probably Sunday are looking splendid, which would be great timing to get in that round of golf, or any other outdoor plans you might have. On each side of our weekend days -- today, Monday and Tuesday -- we have clouds and the possibility of drizzle/showers pestering us. Shall we call it a sunshine sandwich?
Today (Friday): Cloudy skies and even some mist or drizzle may still be around during the morning hours. But flow from the southwest should eat into the clouds and bring increasing sun for the afternoon. Highs should get to at least the mid-70s. If we see enough sun, I'd bet some spots hit the upper 70s. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: With increasingly clear skies and a late-night breeze out of the north, lows cool down to the mid-to-upper 50s in the suburbs to the low 60s to near 60 in the city. Confidence: Medium-High
How does it look for Sunday's Redskins game and Navy 5-miler? Keep reading...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Our recent clouds and drizzle should be a distant memory. Replaced by sunny skies and dry air with pleasant highs in the mid-70s. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Partly to mostly clear. A little cooler & crisper than we've seen lately. Downtown should dip into the mid-50s, Down to the low 50s and perhaps some upper 40s in the suburbs. Confidence: High
Sunday: The next storm system lurks off to the west, but as of now looks like it will hold off long enough for a partly to mostly sunny Sunday. Temperatures in the upper 50s to near 60 for the 8 a.m. start of the Navy 5 Miler aim once again for afternoon highs in the mid-70s. Not bad at all for the Redskins' home opener. Make sure to invite me over if you grill, please! Confidence: Medium
Increasing clouds Sunday night with lows in the mid-50s to near 60. A few showers may try to work their way in from the west. Confidence: Low-Medium
We reach the bread of our sunshine sandwich by Monday and Tuesday as onshore flow brings more clouds and increased showers chances. Highs in the 70s should feel O.K. though. Confidence: Low
