D.C.-area forecast: Cloudy and a chance of showers through tonight

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

6/10: A warm and muggy October day isn’t all bad. Mostly cloudy skies may bring a few showers but not much in the way of rain.

  • Today: Mostly cloudy. Shower possible. Highs: Mid-70s to around 80.
  • Tonight: Fairly cloudy. Shower/storm chance. Lows: 60s.
  • Tomorrow: Early rain odds, clearing and gusty. Highs: Mid-60s to near 70.
  • Sunday: Partly sunny, gusty. Highs: Around 60 to low 60s.

We may not be this warm again for a while. If you’re a fan of temperatures eyeing the 80-degree mark in the mildest spots, then enjoy. Mostly cloudy skies with a slight shower chance isn’t ideal, but any rain looks very light for outdoor plans (or commutes). We may get needed rains tonight into early tomorrow, fingers crossed. Sunday morning may feature temperatures in the 40s everywhere as we get a real taste of autumn.

Today (Friday): Skies are cloudier than not, but we should still get warm for October, or into the mid-70s to around 80 degrees. It’s a bit muggy, with dew points well into the 60s. Patches of early morning drizzle or a couple of quick, light showers are possible, but rain amounts look low. Southerly breezes stay light. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Mostly cloudy overall, as our cold front approaches from the Midwest. Continued sticky dew points in the 60s help buoy temperatures, keeping them in the same range. Shower chances are on the increase as the night wears on as a cold front approaches. A few moderate showers, even a thunderstorm, possible after midnight. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Saturday): Showers are possible into midmorning as the cold front finishes moving through. Rain amounts overall look light. That means any rain that falls shouldn’t last long. Skies clear into the afternoon, though another quick pop-up shower is possible. Humidity drops as winds ramp up from the northwest toward perhaps 25 mph gusts. High temperatures should be able to get to the mid-60s, perhaps near 70 in the warmest spots. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Clear skies with some gusty westerly winds. Low temperatures in the mid- to upper 40s. Confidence: Medium

Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds with winds perhaps gusting near 30 mph as Philippe merges with a low-pressure system over eastern Canada. Our coolest day of the weekend may have high temperatures only around 60 degrees into the low 60s. Sunshine levels could improve but we’ll monitor. Confidence: Medium

Sunday night: Partly cloudy and diminishing breezes, with low temperatures in the low to mid-40s. Confidence: Medium

Partly sunny skies continue Monday and Tuesday. Crisp, autumnal high temperatures aim for the 60s, to perhaps near 70 degrees Tuesday. Winds should be calmer but a couple gusts near 20 mph can’t be ruled out. If you have the holiday to wander about on Monday, just grab a warm morning layer to peel off later. Confidence: Medium
