D.C.-area forecast: Autumn weather follows possible showers today

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

7/10: A shower possible early and late, but overall trending nicer with increasing afternoon sun and decreasing humidity.

  • Today: Isolated a.m. shower possible, then partly sunny. Highs: Near 80 to low 80s.
  • Tonight: Isolated evening shower possible, then partly cloudy. Lows: Upper 50s to low 60s.
  • Tomorrow: Sunny and a bit breezy, low humidity. Highs: Around 75 to 80.

September has been a warm one thus far with 9 out of 12 days seeing highs at or above 88 degrees. We’ll start to even things out over the next week with highs most days closer to average for this time of year, which is in the low 80s. We still have the chance of an isolated shower today before several rain-free days featuring plenty of sunshine and low humidity through the weekend.

Today (Wednesday): Mostly cloudy this morning with an isolated shower possible as a cold front moves through. Becoming partly sunny this afternoon with decreasing humidity, temperatures rising through the upper 70s and low 80s, and a light breeze from the northwest. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Can’t rule out an isolated evening shower as another cold front comes through. Otherwise we’re partly cloudy as a breeze from the north continues to bring in drier air, with lows cooling off to the upper 50s and low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Thursday): Our first day of a delightful stretch. We’ve got blue skies and brilliant sunshine with highs around 75 to 80 and low humidity (dew points dropping to near or below 50). Winds from the north are a bit breezy, around 10 mph with some higher gusts. Confidence: High

Tomorrow night: Clear skies and a diminishing wind lead to what could be our coolest night since early to mid-June, with lows ranging through the 50s. Confidence: High

Friday is just as nice as Thursday. Highs again around 75 to 80 with sunny skies, low humidity and a bit breezy at times. Friday night lows drop back to the 50s again under mostly clear skies. Confidence: Medium-High

Should still see a good deal of sunshine this weekend. But perhaps some clouds at times — from the outer fringes of Hurricane Lee in the Atlantic on Saturday, and from a cold front approaching from the west on Sunday. We’ll call it partly to mostly sunny both days with continued low humidity and highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Confidence: Medium-High
