FORECAST IN DETAIL
Showers last night into the early morning were enough to give our lawns a drink. Some more rain would be nice, but I don't see any additional meaningful precipitation over the next several days. Instead, we'll enjoy warm 80s (not as warm as yesterday's somewhat surprising high of 91 at Reagan National) and a fair amount of sun. Not bad as weekends go.
Today (Friday): The sun and clouds mingle today for partly sunny skies. Any remaining showers should be gone by around or just after sunrise. A steady breeze from the northwest, near 10-15 mph at times, gradually decreases the leftover mugginess in the air. Temperatures are a little cooler than yesterday with highs in the low-to-mid 80s. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: Mostly clear skies, lowering humidity, temperatures mainly in the 70s, and a light breeze from the north make for a refreshing evening. Before sunrise, overnight lows dip to the 50s (suburbs) to low 60s (downtown). Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Saturday): I think you'll be pleased with mostly sunny skies for much of the day, though some high clouds may arrive during the afternoon. Highs in the low-to-mid 80s should be pretty nice, too, especially with comfortable humidity and light winds. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Skies should stay mostly clear and temperatures slowly fall through the 70s into the 60s. Similar to tonight, the suburbs head for lows in the 50s while downtown ends up in the low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday: Another mostly to partly sunny day with highs in the 80s. A cold front looks like it wants to come through dry, but can't totally rule out a shower late in the day or during the evening. Confidence: Medium
Sunday night, we'll have that small chance of an evening shower. Overnight lows are a bit higher than the previous couple nights -- from near 60 in the suburbs to maybe as high as the mid-60s downtown. Confidence: Low-Medium
Monday & Tuesday should be mostly sunny and a pleasant start to the new work week with highs from near 80 to the mid-80s, and humidity in check. Confidence: Medium
Our average highs for this time of year are now down to the upper 70s. But it looks like we'll stay above average as next week progresses.
