DC Area Weather Forecast: Excellent weather through the work week


A somewhat subjective assessment of today’s weather on a scale from 0 to 10.

9/10: Another very nice spring day, but some smoky haze can filter the sunshine.

  • Today: Mostly sunny. Highlights: Close to 80.
  • Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low: 50 to 58.
  • Tomorrow: Filtered sunshine. Heights: 75 to 79.

We have a great run of lovely days that will continue into Thursday or Friday. Unfortunately, a storm system off the mid-Atlantic coast could plague us with some rain over the holiday weekend. While we need the rain, it would be nice if it didn’t fall this weekend, which has been the pattern for weeks now.

Today (Monday): Do you remember how lovely yesterday was? It should be almost as nice, but the sunshine may not be as bright due to some haze from the Canadian wildfires. Still, we’ll enjoy low humidity (dew points near 50) and comfortably warm highs near 80. Light east wind around 5 to 10 mph. Confidence: High

Tonight: Skies are partly cloudy and it’s nice and refreshing as overnight lows range into the 50s. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Smoke from the Canadian wildfires may persist and shave a few degrees off afternoon highs, which should mostly be in the mid to upper 70s. Winds are again light from the east around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 50 to 55. Light east wind. Confidence: Medium-High

It’s another beautiful day Wednesday with partial sunshine and up to about 80 degrees. Winds will briefly come in from the south ahead of a cold front, but humidity will remain pleasantly low (dew points in the low 50s). Clouds may tend to increase towards evening as the front comes through, but showers should hold well to the north. Overnight lows again range from 50 to 55. Confidence: Medium-High

Thursday and Friday are a bit cooler but still quite comfortable. Highs both days will range from 70 to 75. Clouds may begin to increase Friday afternoon and into the evening. Lows Thursday evening will dip into the cool mid-40s in our cooler areas, but closer to 50 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High

The forecast for Friday night through the weekend is complicated by an area of ​​low pressure offshore that can bring considerable cloud cover and rain at times. How widespread and heavy the rain is will depend on how close to the coast the low pressure comes. It is still possible that we may have some extended dry spells, but it is also possible that it will be quite humid and rainy at times. The timing, location and amount of any rain will take a few days to come into focus. One thing is for sure – the low pressure area will be a slow mover so we may have to deal with this nuisance for a good part of the long weekend. Highs should mostly be in the 70s, with lows near 60. Confidence: Low-Medium
