Forecast: Cool and sunny today, warmer coming
Chilly beginnings, but sunny through weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
We should have a beautiful Friday and weekend -- albeit chilly from time to time. Temperatures and breezes notwithstanding, looks like a good opportunity to enjoy some sunshine, go for a run, or any myriad of outdoor activities. Just be sure to dress in layers, especially early or late, because the sun will be the main factor keeping you warm. By early next week, our slow upward trend in temperatures shows results. However, clouds become an issue on Monday, and by Tuesday we may end our fair weather completely.
Today (Friday): Sunshine is the definite plus, but chilly temperatures are the minus. Temperatures start in the 30s for most of the region, and take their time getting to mid-afternoon high temperatures near 50 and into the lower 50s. Winds are light from the west. A decent Friday, no? Confidence: High
Tonight: Clear but a bit breezy. Downtown could maintain temperatures right near 40, while the coldest suburbs drop toward the lower 30s. There could be a light frost as well, with dewpoints hovering around the freezing mark by sunrise. Confidence: Medium-High
How long does sun stick around, and what about milder weather? Keep reading for the forecast into next week...
Tomorrow (Saturday): High pressure continues its excellent, sunny influence. Few, if any clouds, will dot the sky. Along with a stronger breeze from the west, this facilitates slightly warmer temperatures around 60 degrees. Breezes do increase a bit, around 10 mph sustained. Get out and about! Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Clear and acceptably worry-free for going out on the town. Temperatures should be about the same or slightly milder than Friday night, with low temperatures bottoming near 40 downtown, and perhaps the low-or-mid-30s outside of the Beltway. Confidence: Medium
Sunday: This may look like the same mostly sunny day as Saturday, but we pick up a northerly breeze at least for a time. Temperatures are cooler, though still acceptable I suppose, probably mid-50s. It won't feel quite as warm as Saturday. Confidence: Medium
Sunday night may see a few more clouds move into the area. Temperatures drop a bit, but are not quite as variable or cool, because of the clouds. I foresee a range mainly in the upper 30s and lower 40s throughout the region. Confidence: Low-Medium
Monday remains dry despite cloudier skies. The sun still puts up a fight though, so partly cloudy is the story. High temperatures should be warmer, like the low-to-mid 60s.
By Tuesday, we see even more clouds as a cold front approaches and slows down. Shower chances go up to about 30-40% by afternoon. However, highs heading for the mid-to-upper 60s are warm for this time of year, thanks winds from the south ahead of a storm in the Midwest. Unsettled conditions may then persist later into the week. Confidence: Low
