D.C.-area forecast: Warmer, sunny end to the workweek

WEATHER NEWS: D.C.-area forecast: Warmer, sunny end to the workweek


* Frost advisory until 9 a.m. for much of the immediate area and east *

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

9/10: It’s hard to hold back a point, but frost needs time to thaw, I suppose. Then we have an absolutely fantastic rest of the day upon us.

  • Today: Mainly sunny. Highs: 62-68.
  • Tonight: Generally clear and calm. Lows: 40s
  • Tomorrow: Sunny, slight breeze. Highs: Mid-60s to around 70.
  • Sunday: Rain chances rise with time. Highs: Around 60 to mid-60s.

Splendid blue skies today and most of tomorrow should soften the blow to any Sunday outdoor plans. It’s trending cooler and cloudier, with growing chances of rain, especially by afternoon. More warmth should resume Monday and Tuesday, although clouds and rain chances can’t be eliminated fully, as it looks now.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Sunshine dominates, and again light morning breezes only become a bit more noticeable in the afternoon, blowing from the southeast at around 5 mph. High temperatures top out around 70 degrees. A few clouds are possible in the very late afternoon. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Clouds build, and a couple of showers are possible in the predawn hours. Overnight low temperatures don’t fall too far, into the upper 40s to low 50s. Confidence: Medium

Sunday: Showers are possible most anytime, with highest rain chances during the afternoon hours. Even before sunset we could see a brief downpour. A storm system looks likely to move northward off the Atlantic coast, and we’re toward the western edge. High temperatures may hover merely around 60 to 65 degrees if we see the rainier solution, with mid-60s to near 70 more likely if it was mainly dry. Confidence: Low-Medium

Sunday night: Clouds and rain chances continue. Anything should be waves of showers, but a downpour can’t be ruled out completely. Temperatures may hover in the low to mid-50s for most to all of the night. Confidence: Low-Medium

Low clouds may hang at times Monday and Tuesday, but sunshine should also be plentiful, especially Tuesday. High temperatures are able to manage the upper 60s to mid-70s, with perhaps a tinge of humidity (dew points around the 60-degree mark are possible). We will monitor how slowly this storm system exits our region in case Monday trends grayer. Confidence: Medium
