The world looks just a bit brighter as you wake this morning. For one, the sun has been up for an hour longer, and our skies free themselves from the passing cloudiness we saw yesterday. We stay bright for the majority of the week as well, warming as we go. The only chink in the plan so far is an iffy coastal low that has the potential to increase clouds on Tuesday and also keep some gusty breezes around.

Today (Sunday): Our sun asserts itself a little more today as skies become mostly sunny. Our temperatures remain on the cool side though, with highs in the range of 50-55. Winds from the northwest are just breezy enough -- around 15 mph at times -- to add an extra chill. Confidence: High

Tonight: Frost is possible for some areas that haven't seen it yet as lows dip to the mid-30s downtown and to the south and east. Northern and western suburbs are a bit colder, down to the low 30s to near 30. Clear, star-filled skies aide in the cooling as do calming winds. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday): At first glance, tomorrow's forecast looks like a good one -- mostly sunny skies finally begin to work their magic, urging highs to the upper 50s. However, the warmer temperatures may be countered by breezes from the northwest around 15-20 mph with higher gusts, the result of a storm system spinning along the New England coastline. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Night: Air temperatures won't be as chilly as tonight, but winds remain quite breezy. And as that storm system off the New England coast meanders a bit southward, it could throw enough clouds our way for partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows drop to the upper 30s to low 40s in the suburbs and to the low-to-mid 40s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High


Tuesday, low pressure is centered well off the coast, but likely having moved south from New England all the way to around due east of D.C. (yes, most coastal systems typically move in the opposite direction -- from south to north). The result could be continued partly cloudy skies, with highs probably in the upper 50s. We should remain dry as any isolated showers should stay east of the area. With forecast confidence on the low side, keep an eye here for updates. Confidence: Low-Medium

Wednesday and Thursday look to be near perfect fall days. We'll be under the influence of high pressure, meaning mostly sunny skies, morning lows in the upper 30s to low 40s, and mild afternoon highs in the low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Approx 1/2 inch of ice left in the small plastic container with water in it, melting quickly in bright sunshine. Time to hang out the laundry.

eric654 - your locale probably got into the 20s last night, I suspect? I observed some really cold temperature readings in Manassas & Harrisonburg, for instance. Good luck with the laundry! Cash in on today's direct (cloud-free) sunshine :)
