Forecast: Today Brings Best Weather of Week
Cool and wet wreck late Wed. into weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The rest of this week does not look nice weather-wise, which means you must get out and enjoy today's dry ad mild conditions. By tomorrow, our local weather goes downhill very quickly as weather systems gang up on the D.C. area. Canadian high pressure to the north will push cool winds upon us, and a series of weather disturbances tracking from the south will push clouds and ultimately moisture into our area. It is an unfortunate situation that could penetrate deep into the weekend.
Today (Tuesday): We should see more sunshine than we saw on Columbus Day with only some scattered clouds at times. Highs should range from the upper 60s to low 70s. Winds should be coming from the northwest at 10-15 and could be a bit gusty at times. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Mostly clear skies this evening and for much of the overnight period may give way to a little cloud cover toward dawn. Temperatures will turn colder with lows in the upper 30s in the far-out suburbs to the middle 40s in town. Winds will shift and start arriving from the northeast. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): For right now, tomorrow does not look wet - just cloudy and cool. A brisk wind from the northeast or east will require some additional layering when venturing outside. Highs should only be in the low-to-mid 50s throughout the area. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Cloudy and cool weather will prevail, with a 40% chance of rain moving into the region. Look for lows in the mid-to-upper 40s with continued cool winds from the east and north. Confidence: Low-Medium
Thursday should remain cool and cloudy with a 40% chance of rain at times. Brisk winds from the north and east will keep temperatures suppressed from the upper 40s to mid-50s around the area. Thursday night temperatures should back down into the mid-40s. Rain chances increase to 60%. Confidence: Low-Medium
Friday should be very cool and dreary right with rain likely (70% chance), while temperatures struggle again to crack the 50 degree-mark. Cool winds from the north and east will persist. That rain could be heavy at times and may continue into Friday night with even some gusty winds possible. Lows will be in the 40s. Confidence: Low
The weekend is not looking too nice at this early stage with more clouds and showers on Saturday and even a few lingering ones possible on Sunday as well. Highs should be in the 50s with lows in the 40s or maybe the upper 30s farther north and west away from the city. The best chance to see sunshine may come on Sunday afternoon, but that's iffy. Confidence: Low
A peek at early next week shows the opportunity for both drier and warmer weather along with more sunshine. Highs should work their way back to the 70s again to offer some grade A days. Confidence: Low
