PM Update: Gloomy weather on its way out
Sun and breezes tomorrow; Chilled nights ahead
It's just one of those days. A good one for a nap if you aren't (or even if you are?) at work. Clouds have held tough across much of the area, and some brief light rain made it as far north as D.C. and immediate surrounds before sinking back south and east. Highs have only made it to the upper 50s and near 60 thanks to the clouds and light rain around.
Through Tonight: The last of the light showers are pulling off to the east. Skies start clearing this afternoon and evening as low pressure moves away. Overnight, we'll see mostly clear skies, with perhaps some areas of fog. Temperatures fall to near 40 in the coldest spots to the upper 40s or near 50 downtown.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Sunshine returns and we're looking at a pretty sweet day. A cold front pushing through by afternoon should kick up gusty winds from the northwest, sustained around 10 or 15 mph. There should be some temporary increase in clouds along with a slight risk of a very isolated shower somewhere late day. Highs reach the mid-or-upper 60s.
Winter forecast: Joe Bastardi, who according to AccuWeather, "nailed the forecast last year," is set to release his winter outlook tomorrow. Today, there was a bit of a preview. The story around here? Not great for winter weather enthusiasts it seems. As is typical in a La Nina, he expects the worst of winter's wrath to be centered well to our north and northwest, but also potentially an early start on the East Coast in November and December.
