Forecast for the DC area: A nice streak of days continues as we trend warmer today, cooler tomorrow


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

8/10: Another solid spring day, where we are trending a little warmer. And another day we might not be able to shake the smoky haze.

  • Today: Partly to mostly sunny, low humidity. Highs: Upper 70s to low 80s.
  • Tonight: Partly to mostly cloudy, brief shower? Lows: Upper 40s to mid 50s.
  • Tomorrow: Partly to mostly sunny, a little windy. Highs: Upper 60s to low 70s.

We end the working week in fine style with the seasonal spring warmth today, cooler sunshine tomorrow and also a reasonably nice Friday. Saturday should start the holiday weekend partly sunny and still dry before rain chances increase Sunday and Memorial Day. Whether and how much rain we will get is very uncertain at the moment. As for that wildfire smoke, it looks like it will continue again today.

Today (Wednesday): Another lovely one with partly to mostly sunny skies, low humidity and light winds. From a somewhat cool start in the upper 40s to mid-50s, temperatures warm nicely to afternoon highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Confidence: High

Tonight: Skies will become partly to mostly cloudy as a cold front approaches from the north. Not much moisture around, but can’t rule out a short shower as the cold front comes through during the evening. Overnight lows will drop back into the upper 40s to mid-50s as winds become somewhat breezy with gusts near 25 mph from the north. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Thursday): Any early to mid-morning clouds give way to mostly sunny skies again. An occasional gusty breeze could persist during the morning with lighter winds in the afternoon. Most notably, temperatures are much cooler but still comfortable with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s and even lower humidity. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Still mostly clear with light winds. Temperatures are quite cool with lows falling into the upper 40s and low 50s, which is about 10 degrees below average. Confidence: High

Friday should start mostly sunny but could see increasing afternoon clouds depending on the northerly progress of a storm developing off the southeast coast. Overall, another pleasant day with light winds, low humidity and highs in the low to mid 70s. Partly to mostly cloudy Friday night with lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Confidence: Medium-High

Right now the coastal storm looks set to stay far enough to the south to allow us a partly sunny and dry spell Saturday with highlights in the 70s. Saturday night there may be a chance for light showers with lows in the 50s. Confidence: Medium

Some models show rain on Sunday while some models keep us dry. Several models show rain on memorial day, but there are still some that keep us dry. It all depends on how far north that coastal storm to our south reaches. For now, all we can say is that there’s at least a chance for showers both days, perhaps a better chance on Monday, with highs aiming for the 70s. Confidence: Low
