Forecast: Wonderful Wednesday & weekend, too
Thurs. & Fri. not bad either; shower chance late Thurs.
FORECAST IN DETAIL
For months, our weather in and around Washington was as extreme as it could be. Now it's about as nice as can be. The only potential interruption to the wonderful weather now through the weekend is a chance of showers tomorrow night. But I wouldn't count on too much in the rain bucket, which is too bad considering how dry we are.
Today (Wednesday): A really fabulous day. Mostly sunny skies carry morning temperatures through the 60s and into the 70s, with afternoon highs in the low 80s. Low humidity and light winds seal the deal for a great day to get out if you can. Confidence: High
Tonight: No weather worries this evening or overnight. Just mostly clear skies and lows in the mid-50s to low 60s. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): Skies are partly sunny as a cold front approaches from the west. Ahead of the front, breezes from the south (around 10-20 mph by afternoon) should help our highs to at least the mid-80s with a touch of humidity. Upper 80s are possible with enough sun and a strong enough push of warm air from the south. A shower may try to sneak in toward evening. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: The cold front brings mostly cloudy skies and a 30-40% chance for some showers during the evening into the overnight. Any rain is likely to be on the light side and of little help to our developing drought. Lows bottom in the 60s with clearing skies overnight or toward morning. Confidence: Low-Medium
The shower threat should be gone by sunrise, making way for a mighty fine Friday. A drying breeze from the west-northwest lowers the humidity once again as highs head for the low-to-mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. Confidence: Medium
The good times roll right on through the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies, comfortable humidity, highs in the 80s, and morning lows ranging from the 50s (suburbs) to low 60s (downtown). Confidence: Medium-High
As Matt mentioned yesterday, a surge of warmer air may arrive as we get into next week. Rain chances, it appears, will remain few and far between.
