Forecast: November off to sunny, cool start
Rain and cold for second half of the week
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Some of the recent starts to the week haven't really felt like fall -- with almost summer-like temperatures in 70s and 80s. But today and tomorrow, there's no mistaking the season - with a frosty morning in many spots and high temperatures struggling to 55. Then, after mid-to-late week rains, it turns practically winter-like by late Friday into the weekend with highs temps struggling to reach 50.
Today (Monday): Just like the last couple mornings, we begin with 30s to near 40. Though we'll also continue to have a lot of sun, a cool wind from the north and northwest stunts afternoon warming, with highs only in the mid-50s. Confidence: High
Tonight: The coldest night of the season arrives, with everyone dropping into the 30s under clear to partly cloudy skies. Frost is possible even inside the beltway with lows ranging from near 30 in the coldest suburbs to the mid-to-upper 30s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through next weekend...
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Canadian high pressure sits parked to our north, supplying more chilly air to the region. Under mostly sunny skies, highs only reach the low-to-mid 50s. Winds from the north are light at about 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: It's another frosty night for the region, with lows from 29-36 (suburbs-city) under clear skies. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday gets off to a sunny start, but mid-to-high level clouds probably increase during the afternoon as low pressure develops to the south. Highs head up into the mid-to-upper 50s. Turning cloudy Wednesday night with a chance (40-50% chance) of light rain developing, especially toward morning. Lows are in the low-to-mid 40s. Confidence: Medium
A chilly rain is likely Thursday into Thursday night as low pressure to the south organizes into a storm off the mid-Atlantic coast. Highs are probably just 50-55 with the clouds and rain. Winds from the northeast become a bit gusty toward evening and overnight when the rain gradually subsides. Lows range from 40-45. Confidence: Medium
It dries out Friday through Sunday, but it's cold and windy - especially Friday and Saturday. Highs Friday are in the low 50s, possibly only in the upper 40s Saturday, and then back to the low-to-mid 50s by Sunday - when there's likely to be less wind. Sky cover ranges from variably cloudy on Friday to mostly sunny Saturday and Sunday. Both Friday and Saturday nights are mostly clear and cool, with lows 28-35 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
