Today: Mostly sunny, mild. Mid-to-upper 60s. | Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy. 43-48. | Tomorrow: Partly sunny. Low-to-mid 60s. | A Look Ahead | Get Express Forecast by E-mail


We'll have two more days to enjoy this pleasant weather before shower chances interrupt our flow as we head into Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon and night may very well bring some decent rains. But the inclement weather is short-lived with sunshine returning during the day Wednesday.

Today (Sunday): Plenty warm out today for whatever your outdoor desires may be. Lots of sun spurs the mercury up to the mid-to-upper 60s before we finally start to see some cloud cover approach or move in late in the day. Winds are light from the southeast. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy skies mean less of a chill than recent nights with lows in the 40s. Confidence: High

Keep reading for the forecast into the work week...

Tomorrow (Monday): Well, the pretty much perect November weather couldn't last forever. The first day of the new work week finally shows some flaws in the way of more clouds. Still, partly sunny skies should help highs reach the pleasant low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Night: Showers most likely hold off until after the Redskins Monday-nighter against Philly, but do become possible as we head into the overnight as low pressure emerges from the Gulf of Mexico. Overnight lows continue their milder trend -- near 50. Confidence: Medium


Shower chances continue Tuesday morning, with periods of rain likely Tuesday afternoon and night. Mostly cloudy skies and an onshore breeze probably cap Tuesday afternoon highs in the 50s with lows Tuesday night around 50. Confidence: Medium

The rain should wind down by early Wednesday morning, followed by clearing skies, some gusty winds, and afternoon highs near 60. Confidence: Medium

After the summer baking our garden went through it so deserves this wonderful mild autumn.

FIREDRAGON47 - I hope your garden is doing ok? It wasn't baked into oblivion this past summer, was it? But yes what a great day--enjoy!

What do you guys think about the demise of Eastern Weather Forums?

Posted by: MKadyman | November 14, 2010 5:16 PM | Report abuse

Tuesday's rain figures to be as much as one inch, storm total. Once again this is a MUCH UNNEEDED interference with a Clarendon Ballroom dance Tuesday evening...wish the rain would start clearing out during the afternoon...and quit scheduling these nasty SAD-inducing events for my dance nights!

@ MKadyman...if you have been checking my posts, I've been following the "Eastern Wx Forums" business since it developed on Friday. What seems to be happening is that the administrator/owner "Vortmax" decided to shut down the forum abruptly as the result of a dispute with fellow administrators of the site. Meanwhile many of the Eastern Wx members are joining the similar "American Weather Forums" portal and posting there. Though I can't be absolutely sure of it, I think CWG will be addressing the "Eastern Wx Forums" situation some time this week. Meanwhile we can continue getting the same information from American Weather Forums.

I was aware of the new site. But I normally don't follow your tedious posts about your dances, etc, etc. I was asking for the admins of this for their opinion.

Folks-- We're not going to do anything special on the weather forum drama. Just a small subset of our readers are aware of and participate on these forums and the reasons for Eastern closing are stated on that site.

A week of so ago you mentioned that there was a chance of some quite cold weather next week. Is that still in the cards?

It had looked like early the week of Thanksgiving it might turn appreciably colder...but now that might be pushed back to closer to Thanksgiving itself. Arctic does look like it will start spilling into the northern Rockies and northern Plains in about a week, but projecting its arrival here is tough. Confidence is low for these longer range projections.

I'd just like to point out that the moon looks spectacular tonight shining through the thin, high clouds.

Posted by: Brian-CapitalWeatherGang | November 14, 2010 9:12 PM | Report abuse

The moon, along with the night in general, is gorgeous. I'm looking forward to next week when we can have a better idea what that Arctic mass will be doing. I'm rooting for the cold.

What kept this current high-pressure over us so strong, for so long? Jet-stream just shunting all the systems/fronts around it?...Seems like, for a while, it was almost a blocking-pattern.
