Clouds have hung tough much of the day thanks to cold air aloft, and this has kept temperatures a smidge cooler than forecast with highs reaching the low-and-mid 50s most spots. The clouds are beginning to dissipate as we get past peak heating of the day and we'll lose them entirely heading into tonight. If you're headed out this evening, bundle up, it's going to be chilly.
Through Tonight: Any clouds left this evening quickly fade, leaving us clear and cold. Lows should fall to within a few degrees of freezing (near 30 to the mid-30s) in the suburbs to near 40 downtown. Winds subside, but should not go totally calm, so that may help keep temperatures up slightly in spots.
Tomorrow (Saturday): After a pretty cold start, it should be a relatively nice if still somewhat cool day. We'll probably see afternoon temperatures rise a bit higher than today, so let's say upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds should also be less than today, but some afternoon gusts are possible.
Foliage watch: Fall color has continued to expand across the area as we enter into the typical peak period. According to the Foliage Network, places north and west of D.C. were seeing high color as of the 27th, while those south and east were seeing moderate color. Peak conditions were reported across the highlands to the west. This should be a great weekend for local leaf peeping, though some folks across the area are already reporting many bare trees thanks to recent winds, so the best views may be patchy.
