PM Update: Low 60s again and again and ...

By Jason Samenow

Sometimes the unremarkable is remarkable. Here are the highs at Reagan National Airport (DCA) for the last three days: 64, 63, 64. Today's high isn't in the books yet, but the 3 p.m. reading at DCA was ... 63! Tomorrow's forecast? You guessed it -- highs in the low 60s.

Through Tonight: This is actually our coldest night in the recent stretch of monotonous weather. Skies are clear and winds go calm allowing the heat of the day to filter straight out to space. Temperatures tank in response, falling to the mid-30s downtown to the upper 20s in the cooler suburbs.

Tomorrow (Friday): A splendid end to a splendid work week. Skies are blue and temps return to their proper place in the low 60s. All is right in the world.

Even more on La Nina and snow: Not to beat a dead horse, but the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Sterling breaks down La Nina and what it means for DC/Baltimore winters. Its analysis has striking similarities to Wes Junker's cogent analysis posted here on CWG earlier today.

This "broken record" of 60 degree temperatures making anyone else as happy as me? It is pretty enjoyable, right? :)

After a week like this, anyone who does not think Fall is the best season, weather-wise, in this region has some explainin' to do.

Fall is the prettiest season, but it won't grow crops.
The weekend forecast is great.
I wonder if tonight will be the "death to the very last of the persistent annuals" freeze we've yet to have here in Centreville.

Okay, going to go off topic... but noting that our suprise January snowstorm in 2000 happened during a La Nina... interesting...
