Forecast: Gray Skies to Gradually Clear
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Over the past five days, other than for a few brief windows, the sun has not shined. All of that is about to change as the painstakingly stubborn coastal storm finally pulls away. In its wake, it will slowly but surely clear -- partially today and fully tomorrow. As the clearing occurs, temperatures will rise and I trust many spirits will soar...
Today (Saturday): We're not done with the clouds just yet. As the low winds down to our north and northeast, clouds will continue to pivot southward and even a stray shower (20% chance, mainly north of D.C.) is possible. By the afternoon, I think there's at least a 50% chance we'll have partial clearing which will help boost temperatures into the mid-70s, with upper 70s south of town. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Confidence increases that clearing will accelerate. Sometime after midnight, perhaps stars will be viewable again. Overnight lows will range from the upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the low-to-mid 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast for tomorrow and into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Lots of sunshine. For real. High pressure will finally force out all of the gloominess and we'll enjoy blue skies and a warm late summer day. Highs should reach the low 80s, with a wind out of the north at around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Expect a mostly clear and pleasant overnight with lows ranging from the mid-to-upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the low 60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Both Monday and Tuesday look pretty good. High pressure will remain in control with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs 80-85. Overnight lows should mostly be in the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
