PM Update: Delightful sunshine thru weekend

By Jason Samenow

* D.C. flood wall enough? | Still no freeze in D.C. *

A cool airmass settled over the region today, but abundant sunshine took away the bite, pushing afternoon temperatures into the low-to-mid 50s. A clear, calm, and cold night is ahead, so grab your jacket for the commute home and any evening plans.

Through Tonight: Under starry skies, temps steadily drop through the 40s this evening and deep into the 30s late tonight in many spots. Lows range from 30-35 in the suburbs to the upper 30s downtown. Winds are light.

Tomorrow (Saturday): What a day to kickoff the weekend. Beautiful sunshine lifts temperatures quickly through the 40s and into the 50s during the morning. Afternoon highs should end up right around 60, with a gentle wind from the west at 5-10 mph.

2010 tied for warmest on record so far: NOAA reported yesterday that the year-to-date was tied with 1998 for the warmest year on record since 1880. The month of October itself ranked eighth warmest.

Heh - looks like the 12Z GFS is spitting out something white for the morning of Black Friday...doubt it will happen, but just goes to show that Dec. 5 is only a few days away!

Hey DullesARC, are you looking at morning of Nov 26? or morning of Dec 3? Those are the next two Fridays' dates.

Camden, I believe he is talking about the morning of the 26th. I also noticed the 12z had us in the few-white-flakes zone. Still 7 days away, though.
