The first work week of November is ending in November-like fashion with considerable cloud cover, a breeze, and cool temps. Afternoon temperatures have probably reached their high point in the mid-50s and now begin their gradual descent. Winds from the west at 10-15, with gusts to 20-25 mph, are adding to the chill but should diminish modestly this evening.

Through Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy skies persist overnight as low pressure aloft works its way into the region. The cloud cover acts as a bit of blanket, preventing a huge drop in temperatures. Nonetheless, it's still pretty cold - especially factoring in the wind - with lows from the mid-30s in the cooler suburbs to around 40 downtown.

Tomorrow (Saturday): It's another day of variable cloud cover. We may start with some sun, but clouds increase during the afternoon. Afternoon highs may be cooler than they've been all autumn long, struggling to reach 50. Winds are from the north at about 10 mph.

We are bundled.
Will plant more spring blooming bulbs this weekend. Lots of garden clean up & winter prep work.

@Camden --

I was out earlier this evening and didn't think it was all that cold at the time; my parents came up from Richmond this evening and I was meeting them at a restaurant, and I said let's meet outside. They called me when I was on the way and said they'd wait inside because they were cold! There's a difference between Richmond cold and NoVA cold...
