FORECAST IN DETAIL
Payback time. After all those weekends and multi-day periods of cold rain, drizzle, clouds, and general blahness, we cash in and then some this weekend. Just brave today's breezy chill, and the weekend will prove very enjoyable with sunshine and pleasant temperatures, both of which look to stay through Monday.
Today (Friday): Gorgeous sunny skies. But dress for some wind chill, especially noticeable in the shade. Breezes from the northwest could gust to near 25 mph at times before slowing during the afternoon. Temperatures will climb rather slowly. But afternoon highs in the low 50s will feel fairly pleasant in the sun. No chance of any showers like those that popped up yesterday afternoon. Confidence: High
Tonight: Clear and...freezing? This could be the first freeze for areas along & east of I-95 where a Freeze Warning has been posted (see map). So plant those mums if you haven't already, and bring in the sensitive plants. Lows downtown should drop at least down to the mid-30s. With winds expected to go nearly calm, low 30s and some upper 20s are likely outside the Beltway. Confidence: High
A full weekend of sun? Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Saturday): After our chilly start in the 30s (some upper 20s possible in the suburbs), light breezes from the south help temperatures rebound all the way to the upper 50s to low 60s for afternoon highs. I recommend dressing in an extra layer to peel off as the day warms. No rain chances today either, just mostly sunny skies! Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly clear again but a little milder than tonight. Lows in the upper 30s to mid-40s (suburbs to city) by dawn. Probably no frost to worry about tonight, at least. Confidence: High
Sunday: Sunny, pleasant, dry -- even warmer than Saturday. Highs should make the upper 60s. And as Josh Larson mentioned yesterday, a few spots could hit 70. Get out and bask in the sun while it's out. Theses short days are a bummer, at least for me! Confidence: High
Skies remain mostly clear Sunday night with lows in the 40s. Confidence: Medium-High
Continued splendid sunshine again on Monday with highs in the upper 60s to near 70. A great streak of autumn! Can it continue?... Confidence: Medium
Depending on the progress of the next weather system approaching from the west, Tuesday could bring increasing clouds and eventually a chance of showers. Highs in the 60s to near 70. Confidence: Low-Medium
