WEATHER NEWS: D.C.-area forecast: Very mild through midweek with rain probable Wednesday


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

6/10: Clouds invade, but those 60s won’t fade.

  • Today: Mostly cloudy, shower chance. Highs: 60-66.
  • Tonight: Cloudy, shower chance. Lows: 54-58.
  • Tomorrow: Showers and thunderstorms. Highs: 62-68.

Very warm weather continues for three more days, with highs each day soaring about 20 or more degrees higher than they should this time of year. The nights are mild, too, remaining above freezing through the workweek. Shower chances peak Wednesday, but it trends drier later in the week as temperatures slip toward more typical levels. Highs sink into the 40s by the weekend.

Today (Tuesday): Clouds and some patchy morning fog give the start of this shortened workweek a dreary feel, but temperatures are still very warm as highs head to the low to mid-60s. A stray light shower is possible, mainly north of Washington and during the afternoon. Winds are mostly light from the south at 5 to 10 mph, but they could gust to 20 to 25 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Cloudy skies with a few showers possible, especially toward the morning. Lows range through the warm mid- to upper 50s. Winds from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph could gust higher. Confidence: Medium-High
