D.C.-area forecast: Mild sunshine next two days before a rainy Saturday

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

10/10: Little need for reflection, this is a day of perfection.

  • Today: Clearing at dawn, minimal breezes. Highs: 72-76
  • Tonight: Mostly clear and calm. Lows: 48-54
  • Tomorrow: Mainly sunny, light breeze. Highs: 68-72

The next two days are pretty spectacular with lots of sun and perfectly mild temperatures. Saturday is not, with periods of rain from dawn to dusk and most areas picking up a beneficial inch or more. Sunday is marginally better but still breezy, cool and damp early on. And yes, you guessed it: Monday is beautiful.

Today (Thursday): The deluge that is happening down in the Southeast may send some clouds our way, but they should pull away in the morning, making way for a beautiful afternoon. Winds from the south are barely noticeable with highs mainly in the mid-70s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Skies remain clear and winds are calm. Lows reach the upper 40s to lower 50s. Confidence: High

Periods of rain are likely on Saturday. By the end of the day, around an inch of rain or so may have fallen. The soaking is good for plants but, for people, we’ll find a good book! A rumble of thunder is even possible in the afternoon. Highs are mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Showers gradually become lighter and more intermittent overnight with lows in the lower 50s. Confidence: Medium-High

Sunday starts out unsettled with gusty north winds and a few lingering showers. Hopefully, by the afternoon, the system will have pulled away enough for it to start drying out. Temperatures barely budge with highs in the mid- to upper 50s. Overnight hours are mainly clear with lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Confidence: Medium

Sunshine is back Monday, but clouds will pop up in the afternoon. Highs reach the upper 50s to lower 60s. Confidence: Medium
