FORECAST IN DETAIL
Our short-term streak of decent, fairly autumnal weather is hard pressed to end. Even a weak cold front that would like to move through our region tonight should only throw a few clouds our way (and perhaps an isolated shower). While this cool, dry air reinforcement should keep our temperatures and humidity in check for a bit, we do need the rain. Summer not to be forgotten, we may get warmer reaching up to around 90 degrees by midweek..
Today (Sunday): A pretty darn nice day with sunshine in the morning, and just a few clouds increasing during the afternoon hours. High temperatures feel great in the low-to-mid 80s because of the dew points in the 50s (making it feel essentially humidity-free). Enjoy the Dupont Farmer's Market or your kickball game! Winds will be light ahead of a weak, moisture-starved cold front, from the southerly direction. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Clouds gradually build up overnight and temperatures only slowly drop into the low-to-mid 60s in most areas. A stray shower can't be ruled out, mainly early. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through midweek...
Tomorrow (Monday): Despite scattered clouds in the morning, another fine day is in the cards. Temperatures warm back up with the afternoon sunshine, to around 80 in most spots. Light winds come from the north and west lowering our dew points. This ushers in that crisper, dryer autumnal air we've started getting a taste of recently. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Skies are mostly clear and we relish in the dry and comfortable air. Lows are expected to cool off in the range from the upper 40s to mid-to-upper 50s (downtown). Open those windows! Confidence: High
A LOOK AHEAD
Tuesday is a still slated to be a comfortable day without much humidity but sunshine encourages temperatures to reach into the low 80s or even a bit warmer. Look for clear skies for most of Tuesday night as the lows drop down slightly less, into a broad range from the lower 50s in the cooler suburbs to lower 60s in the city. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday finds our area perhaps entering another warm spell? OK, maybe I should say hot. Temperatures threaten to top out around 90 degrees. Humidity may creep up slightly as well. Lots of sunshine contribute to our midweek weather heat, and we slowly edge toward D.C.'s record number of 90+ degree days in one season. Could this be day #64? Confidence: Medium
