FORECAST IN DETAIL
Another cold front makes its way through the area tonight. Ahead of it, some gusty breezes from the south transport in warmer air today. Shower chances tonight and tomorrow morning (not too high, though) will mark the front's passage. Then it's cooler but with a decent amount of sun into early next week.
Today (Friday): Partly sunny today with a slight chance of a morning shower. What you'll really notice are warm temperatures, even a touch of humidity, as highs pop into the low 80s across most of the region with some gusty breezes from the south. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: A cold front brings a 30% chance of showers for the late evening and overnight. Under partly to mostly cloudy skies, temperatures won't dip too far with lows in the low 60s. We'll remain breezy as winds out of the southwest eventually shift to come from the west and then northwest after the front passes late tonight. Confidence: Medium
Will breezes continue to blow through the weekend? Keep reading...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Mostly cloudy and breezy with a 20-30% chance of a shower in the morning, but with increasing sun and still-pleasant warmth in the afternoon. Highs will slowly head to near 70 or into the low 70s by mid-afternoon as skies clear. Breezes out of the northwest will still be a little annoying, unless you're planing to sail, but should diminish in the afternoon. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: After the sun sets, watch for temperatures to quickly feel chilly. On their way down to the low 50s downtown with 40s across the burbs. Skies should be partly cloudy. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday: We've had our eye on an area of clouds and some showers expected to track to our south on Sunday -- and it continues to look like it will stay safely south of the area. So our forecast is for partly sunny skies, at least, but with cooler high temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70. Confidence: Medium
Partly cloudy Sunday night with lows around 50 downtown, upper 40s outside the Beltway. Confidence: Medium-High
Nice weather for anyone lucky enough to have Columbus Day off, with partly sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Highs in the 60s will feel warmish in the sun and coolish in the shade. Certainly more autumn-like than today. Similar weather looks to last into Tuesday. Confidence: Medium
