Forecast: Another fantastic fall weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Mother nature has a keen sense of timing lately, as the overwhelming majority of the season's nasty days have conveniently occurred during the work week. Almost without exception, the weekend days have been beautiful. That's the case again this weekend, with Saturday the sunnier of the two days. Sure enough, the next chance of rain is late Monday into Tuesday.
Today (Saturday): The normally colder suburbs (e.g. Oakton, Manassas, Sterling, Gaithersburg, and Clarksburg) may have some patchy frost early on. But in little time, everyone warms up to above 60 late morning, with afternoon highs near 70. Sky conditions are mostly sunny, with a light wind from the south at 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: Flow from the southwest gradually increases the high cloud cover, meaning a warmer night than the previous. Lows range from the mid-40s in the cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown. Everyone is about 10 degrees warmer than Friday night. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): The potential is there for a nice day, but it's not a lock due to the possibility of at least partial cloud cover at times. Irrespective of the clouds, warm flow from the south means above average temps with highs 70-75. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: The southerly flow and some cloudiness make for a mild evening with overnight lows 50-55 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
Monday is quite the mild day as high pressure offshore continues to pump warm air into the region from the south. But the moist flow may bring considerable cloud cover in the afternoon and the outside (20%) chance of a shower. Highs are in the mid-70s. Showers are more likely (40-50% chance) Monday night, with lows in the 50s. Some shower chances (30%) linger into Tuesday, which is also mild, with highs in the low-to-mid 70s. Confidence: Medium
