DC area forecast: mild today and tomorrow, much cooler through the week after that

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

8/10: Our lucky weekend continues with a partly sunny and mild day leading up to this week’s approaching cooldown.

  • Today: Partly sunny, stray shower? Highlights: Low 70s.
  • This evening: Mostly cloudy, some showers possible. Lows: Low to mid-50s.
  • Tomorrow: Mostly to partly cloudy, spotty shower? Highlights: Mid 60’s to nearly 70’s.

Hopefully you enjoy the seasonal warmth this weekend as a change in the weather pattern is on the way. After the chance of a few showers tonight and another mild day tomorrow, much cooler air is coming in from the north as we see the first real cooling of the season. Ready or not, the autumn (almost winter) cold is almost here!

Today (Sunday): A stray shower is possible early this morning and late afternoon. But otherwise it will be a partly sunny and pleasant day with high temperatures towards the low 70s and light southerly winds around 4-8 mph. Try to get outside for fun fall activities as much cooler weather is coming. Confidence: medium-high

This evening: The sky will become mostly cloudy with the possibility of a few showers during the evening and night hours, but it now looks like most of the rain will remain south of the metro area. The overnight lows are on the mild side in the low to mid-50s. Confidence: Average

Tomorrow (Monday): Cloudy skies and a blotchy shower as we wake up to start the work week. Otherwise, the winds can be a bit windy at times, with gusts approaching 20 mph as a cold front penetrates from west to east. Maximum temperatures should reach the mid-60s to nearly 70s under partly cloudy skies. Confidence: medium-high

Tomorrow evening: Evening temperatures tumble behind the cold front through the 1950s. It is a partly cloudy and chilly night with low temperatures at night that are 15 to 20 degrees cooler than last night, in the upper 30 to 40 degrees. Be sure to cover sensitive plants, especially outside the ring road where we can see some frost advice. Confidence: High

We are partly to mostly sunny Tuesday and Wednesday with highlights only in the 50’s and an almost 50’s feel with a light breeze. Time to dust off the coat and hat? Tuesday and Wednesday night lows bottom out into the 30s. We should stay safely above freezing in the ring road, but frost warnings are possible, and there may even be some frost warnings in our outer northern and western suburbs. Confidence: medium-high
