FORECAST IN DETAIL
Are you as excited as I am for the streak of great weather that's upon us? It couldn't have come at a more perfect time for those who have a three-day weekend. Don't have Columbus Day off? Today's brilliant sun may tempt you to skip out of work today instead. Enjoy!
Today (Friday): Yesterday's winds slacken for a fantastic autumn day. After morning temperatures rise steadily through the 50s and 60s, afternoon highs should top out in the mid-70s to near 80 with a light breeze from the northwest and west. With dew points in the 40s to near 50, humidity is once again in that "sweet spot" where you'll neither sweat nor need the lip balm. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mostly clear skies with only a very light breeze out of the west. Evening temperatures drop back into the 60s and overnight lows have that fabulous fall feel -- upper 40s in the suburbs to mid-50s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into next week...
Tomorrow (Saturday): Mother Nature delivers another superb day. Glorious highs near 80 should feel great. Agreed? Breezes are light and refreshing, too. Less than 10 mph. Top it off with partly to mostly sunny skies and we have a great day for the Taste of Georgetown, the Capitol Riverfront Fest at the new Yards Park, and a host of other events around town. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Skies are partly to mostly clear as evening readings fall through the 60s. Overnight, temperatures drop again toward lows in the upper 40s to the mid-50s. Are you like me and looking forward to keeping your windows open? Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday: The amazing weather continues. Plenty of sun with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. Get out and BBQ! Play kickball! Anything! Confidence: Medium-High
Sunday night, a bit of a warmer and moister flow may lead to a slightly warmer evening than the previous couple. Lows aim for the 50s to near 60. Confidence: Medium-High
Sunshine should stick around on Columbus Day. Temperatures remain enjoyable in the upper 70s to, perhaps, low 80s. Confidence: Medium
Tuesday may see some clouds come into the picture with highs again shooting for the upper 70s to low 80s. Confidence: Medium
