PM Update: Warm but pleasant start to weekend
Another 90+ possible tomorrow, then more 80s
Day 54 of 90+ temperatures in D.C. is in the records, and we're now only 5 away from tying for the second most all time. But we're also getting some good distance from the hottest time of the year and if guidance for the coming period is any real indication, we might not be adding a lot more 90s to the tally. 90s aside, this is looking like a pretty solid start to the weekend this evening and tonight, so get out and enjoy!
Through Tonight: It's going to be a warm but fairly pleasant evening as temperatures fall to the low-or-mid 80s around sunset. Mostly clear skies persist through the night and readings fall to lows in the mid-60s to around 70.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Partly to mostly sunny skies start the weekend off nicely Saturday. It should be another warm one, but perhaps a little cooler than today. Look for highs to rise to the upper 80s and lower 90s.
Not so summery: Unlike these parts, much of the West Coast has been much cooler than normal this summer. In San Francisco, where temperatures are averaging close to 5 degrees below average so far, the air has also been much cleaner than usual thanks to the continued onshore flow.
