PM Update: Welcoming back wonderful weather

By Ian Livingston

Warm into the weekend, some 80s possible?

Welcome back to what this part of fall should be like around here -- mild, sunny days and cool nights. Temperatures in the low-and-mid 70s this afternoon feel mighty fine. I knew it would be sweet when readings were already above the past few days by mid-morning! Looks like we've got a lot more of the same coming up, with daytime temperatures mainly in the 70s (a few 80s possible) for the next several days.

Through Tonight: A lovely, if cool, evening is ahead if you were forced to spend the past few indoors and want to get out. Mostly clear skies rule throughout. Temperatures drop to the low-and-mid 60s post sunset on their way to lows in the low-to-mid 40s in the suburbs to near 50 downtown. Winds that were a bit gusty today drop off toward light overnight.

Tomorrow (Friday): Sunshine fills our Friday and sets the stage for a brilliant weekend. It might be hard not to call in 'sick' though... Highs should reach at least the mid-70s, maybe some upper 70s too. Winds remain light from the northwest, with some afternoon gusts possible.

Great forecast. I'll enjoy the fall but am already getting ready for another great winter. I just ordered some cross country skis so I guess everyone can blame me if this winter doesn't pan out snow-wise.

Currently 55.4 in the Blue Ridge Mtns east of Front Royal

Let's hope it stays around a while...I have to wait at least a week before they turn on the heat.
