WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Sweater weather continues through Wednesday
The average high for Nov. 8 in Washington is 61. So, today’s high of 62 was much more in line with what we should expect compared to the recent warm spell. Tonight’s temperatures will also be closer to normal, and normal is getting pretty chilly as we approach the holidays. More autumnal weather will be on tap Wednesday. That’s good, since it is November, after all.
Through tonight: Clear skies will persist. It will be seasonably chilly, with lows in the mid-30s to lower 40s. Winds will be light from the north.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Skies will mainly be sunny, with lighter winds than today. Highs will be right around 60. Clouds might increase by sunset. Classic autumn as you crunch through the leaves.
Back to November: Other than some pockets in Montana and Wyoming, the D.C. area and much of the East Coast has seen the most substantial temperature drop over the past 24 hours across the Lower 48. In and around Washington, afternoon highs were a good 20 degrees cooler than Monday’s records near and above 80. From Second Summer to November norms in a snap.
