Forecast: Four straight days of sunshine
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Between the Stewart/Colbert rally, the Marine Corps Marathon and Halloween, it's a big weekend in our Nation's Capitol. Thankfully, the weather looks to be just dandy. As we've become accustomed to this fall, beautiful sunshine fills the weekend skies. Temperatures won't be as warm as they have been, but nothing a warm fleece or warm-up jacket can't overcome during any morning or evening chill.
Today (Saturday): Many parts of the area may awaken to some frost outside, but it won't last long. Radiant sunshine lifts temperatures to around 50 by 10 a.m. all the way to near 60 by 2 p.m. Winds are from the southwest at around 10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: Skies are mostly clear most of the night but we may see some scattered cloud cover late as a weak cold front comes through. Lows are chilly ranging from the mid-to-upper 30s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): It's another day of sunshine and seasonably moderate temperatures. The day starts off crisp but is pleasant enough in the afternoon with highs in the low-to-mid 60s -- right around average. For Marine Corps marathoners - start time temps are in the upper 40s warming to around 60 by noon. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Trick-or-treaters can expect evening temperatures to fall back from around 60 at 6 p.m. to the low 50s by 10 p.m. under mostly clear skies. Skies remain clear for the rest of the night with chilly lows ranging from the mid-30s in the cooler suburbs to the low 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
High pressure continues to be the dominating weather force Monday and Tuesday, resulting in mostly sunny days and clear nights. Highs are near 60, with lows 36-44 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
