WEATHER NEWS: D.C.-area forecast: Sunny and unseasonably cold through the weekend


A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

5/10: Savoring the sunshine, but can we tap the brakes on this winter expressway?

  • Today: Mostly sunny, colder. Highs: 42-48.
  • Tonight: Mostly clear, cold. Lows: 25-33.
  • Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, cold. Highs: 44-48.

Cold, dry and mostly sunny weather remains in control for the next several days as polar high pressure lumbers across the eastern U.S. Daytime temperatures should run 10 to 15 degrees below normal with occasional breezes that make it feel even colder. Meanwhile, nighttime temperatures frequently dip into the 20s to low 30s. Temperatures start to moderate on Monday as it remains dry to start next week.

Today (Thursday): Mostly sunny, breezy and cold, with highs only managing to reach the mid-40s. Breezes from the west at 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 at times make it feel several degrees colder, so bundle up. Dew points in the teens and 20s mean that this air mass is quite dry, too. Confidence: High

Tonight: Mostly clear and cold as lows settle in the frosty 20s to the low 30s toward dawn. Breezes are light and from the northwest. Confidence: High
