PM Update: Near-Perfect Weather Continues

By Ian Livingston

Pleasant conditions again Tuesday, clouds increase late

Days like this help explain why I love fall in D.C. so much; too bad it's a Monday! Wall-to-wall sunshine helped cool morning temperatures rise to right around 70 in most spots this afternoon. The only real weather story of the day is a sometimes gusty wind from the northwest that may add a bit of an extra chill to the air, but even that will become mainly a non-factor overnight.

Through Tonight: Temperatures fall off nicely again tonight, thanks to clear skies and light winds. Look for sunset temperatures in the low-to-mid 60s eventually falling to the low-and-mid 40s for the suburbs to around 50 in the city.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): We're looking at another pretty nice day on Tuesday, even if we should see a few more afternoon clouds than today. Highs look to rise mainly into the lower 70s. By evening we should be trending mostly cloudy and some showers are possible overnight.

Tropical Storm Grace: An area of disturbed weather near the Azores spun up quickly yesterday into Tropical Storm Grace. Cool waters and a northern latitude did not keep the system from developing an eye-like feature overnight that has persisted through much of today. Grace appears to be a rather short-lived system -- the NHC expects it to be sucked into another soon -- but is also quite interesting given where it formed.
