Beautiful day today with barely a cloud in the sky thanks to the high pressure sitting over the Mid-Atlantic. This after a fantastic, albeit slightly cool weekend. Low temperatures dropped into the upper-30s in some locations of the suburbs last night—but change is on the way! Read on to find out.
Change will begin tomorrow as winds shift to a more southerly direction. This will bring warmer air from the south up to our area through Friday. Temperatures will reach unseasonably high tomorrow and Wednesday especially, around 80° both days. Reagan National last broke 80° all the way back in the beginning of October, on the 6th. The normal high for this time of year is 66°.
Temperatures will begin to fall back slightly towards the end of the week, but still remain in the upper-70s.
High pressure will continue to dominate the area throughout this time also—so expect the sun to remain a dominant presence overhead.
A cold front will progress towards the East at the tail end of the week, reaching us Saturday night into Sunday. This will bring rain showers overnight Saturday, and cooler, more seasonable temperatures on Sunday.
