5day Forecast Graphic for 10/10/12A much nicer, and warmer day out today, with most of the area under sunny skies and warm temperatures—reaching to around 70° in some areas.  However, with another cold front looking to come through the DC area tonight, will this weather continue?  Read on to find out!

The cold front tonight shouldn’t bring much in the form of precipitation to the area.  There is a possibility that some northern locations, especially along the Mason-Dixon line could receive some extremely isolated showers, with areas West in the mountains also possibly receiving some this evening.  Other than that, temps will fall into the mid-40s across the area tonight.  Further west in the higher elevations of the Appalachians, temperatures will be much colder overnight—around freezing—leading the NWS to issue a freeze warning for those area tonight.

The sun will remain overhead tomorrow, but temperatures will be a little cooler once again behind the front, only reaching into the mid-60s in most areas.

Another weak front is expected to come through on Friday, but any precipitation will be isolated and once again stay mainly to our north as two areas of high pressure to the East and West keep the low pressure in check up north.

Highs will remain in the mid-60s through the beginning of the weekend Saturday, before beginning to rise at the start of the new week back into the 70s.  Overall, this weekend will be fantastic weather-wise, unlike the previous one, with sunny skies also gracing the area.  Another chance of isolated showers will occur overnight Sunday into Monday before things begin to clear up again.
