PM Update: Mostly clear (and frosty?) tonight

By Ian Livingston

Sunshine Wednesday giving way to clouds late

This is the kind of fall weather I love around here. Crisp morning lows have risen to highs in the low-and-mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. The only down side is a bit of a gusty breeze from the northwest, but since it's not too intense it is not too much of a problem. Mostly clear skies continue through the night, probably leading to some frost in the coldest locations.

Through Tonight: We should stay mostly clear throughout the night as breezes from the northwest subside. Lows range from near freezing in the coldest locations to around 40 in the city. Frost will be a concern over western and northern parts of the area, especially if winds die off overnight.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): We start and end chillier tomorrow than today, but it will still be a pretty nice one. Plenty of sunshine the first half of the day will likely give way to more in the way of cloudiness late. Highs will be about 10 degrees cooler tomorrow, topping out in the low-to-mid 50s.

Dave Schwartz: Almost a year ago, we reported that The Weather Channel slashed some jobs, including that held by popular weathercaster Dave Schwartz. If the discussion back then was not evidence enough that the move was the wrong one, perhaps a new Web site will convince remaining skeptics. The folks at say Dave did some fill-in work from June to August at CBS Atlanta, but his current whereabouts are unknown.

Can anyone give a quick forecast for New York City, for games 6 and (hopefully) 7 of the world series? (Wednesday and Thursday evening)?
I hear rumors of rain on thursday. I was hoping to get something more specific from a trusted source.

Wednesday evening looks mostly fine, though wouldn't rule out a light shower or two. Thursday evening, a cold front brings the chance (around a 40-50% chance as of now) of more meaningful showers, but it's too early to make a confident call on the exact timing and whether they would be steady or heavy enough to significantly impact the game. Temps in the 40s for both games.

There was no frost in Arlington this morning, but there may be ground frost tomorrow morning.

I'm ashamed to be a Virginian tonight. The "Republican" wins mean that fascism and a return to old time Byrd-machine style politics have triumphed in the Old Dominion.
