Forecast: More blue sky and enjoyable 60s
Breeze weaker, pleasant conditions through weekend
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Blue skies, very little breeze, and dry conditions through at least Sunday. What a weekend we have in store! With our average temperatures in D.C. at 59F/41F (hi/low), I think you will be pleased at this mostly above-average forecast. Get outside. Enjoy the ever-shortening daylight that shines bright into Sunday. Have you liked this week's broken record of sunshine and 60s?
Today (Friday): Gorgeous, with clear skies and lots of sunshine. Subtract some of yesterday's breeze, and maybe add a degree to highs? Fantastic stuff! Low-to-mid 60s sound great to me. For my fellow victims of Seasonal Affective Disorder, get out around 11:52 a.m., during solar noon, and soak up some sun. It will do you good! Confidence: High
Tonight: Any light northerly breeze (or hint of breeze, really) will fully calm as evening temperatures drop through the 50s. With almost completely clear skies, you might think about taking David's recent recommendation to view the crescent moon on the southwest horizon in the evening. Do bundle up again, as temperatures bottom out around 40 downtown while nearing 30 in the coldest suburbs. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Saturday): Sun shines bright and winds stay pretty calm. Chilly morning temperatures will bound upwards toward the mid-60s during the afternoon. I can't think of a more outdoor-perfect day. Get out and about! Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Clear and decent for going out on the town. Temperatures should stay a tad bit milder than Friday night with low temperatures bottoming in the lower 40s downtown, and perhaps the mid-30s outside of the Beltway. Confidence: Medium
Sunday: Look for a great, sunny morning with a few clouds possible later in the day. Temperatures are still comfortable, at least mid-60s it seems. The evening should pleasant for dining outdoors. It may be the last evening to do so with comfortable temperatures for the foreseeable future. Confidence: Medium
Sunday night, may feature more in the way of clouds. Lows eventually drop into the upper 30s and low 40s through the region -- more uniform temperature readings because of our increasing cloud cover. Confidence: Low-Medium
We hopefully hold off showers for most of Monday despite mostly cloudy skies. High temperatures may be a little cooler, in the upper 50s to low 60s. I believe shower chances stand at 10-20%. By Tuesday, we may be mostly overcast with a higher (50%) chance of showers. High temperatures? Probably in the cooler 50s. Confidence: Low
