PM Update: A Shower or Two Before Chilly Night
Abundant sun returns for Thursday, may not last long
A small weather system moving by today has kept us fairly cloudy and cool with just a few peeks of sun and a few quick-moving but briefly intense showers. Winds that have been gusty the past few days continue to diminish today, but are still adding an extra chill to the air. Readings that mainly reached the mid-and-upper 60s for highs will fall back tonight to levels unseen in some time as skies clear under building high pressure.
Through Tonight: After a few afternoon showers, any remaining clouds should dwindle this evening and we should end up mostly clear overnight. Temperatures look to fall a bit lower than recent nights -- into the low 40s in the cold spots to around 50 downtown. If National Airport can get below 50 it will be the first time since May 19 when it hit 45. Frost is also expected tonight west of the area in higher elevations.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Cool high pressure will provide a brilliant fall day on Thursday. Clouds of the last two days should be much less numerous with plenty of sunshine from start to finish. Highs rise mainly to the upper 60s and near 70. Winds will be light from the west.
Tony Pann to Baltimore: Tony Pann left the D.C. market behind this weekend and will begin his new job as the morning meteorologist at WBAL-11 in Baltimore next week. Pann spent eight years at WUSA-9, but knows WBAL well as he worked there from 1993 to 2000. Pann will also move to a new radio station in Baltimore, WBAL-AM, where he will provide weather coverage in the morning.
