DC-area forecast: Feels like fall by Thursday

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

6/10: Can’t shake off rain chances and a little steam, but overall still salvageable.

  • Today: Partly cloudy, rain-storm possible. Max: 80 to 85.
  • Tonight: Partly cloudy. Minimum: 62 to 68.
  • Tomorrow: Partly sunny, with a chance of evening showers and storms. Max: Near 85.

Rain and storms have increased over the past four days and are forecast to be non-stop for another three days. But, by Thursday, a strong cold front will kick out dry and cool weather that will provide a taste of fall. By the end of the week, it should warm up again but be rain-free.

Today (Monday): Some low clouds and fog are possible early but we will have partial sunshine at times in the afternoon. It’s still fairly humid (dew points in the upper 60s) and rain or storms can’t be ruled out with highs around 80 to 85. Winds will be less from the northwest. Confidence: Medium High

Tonight: Partly cloudy skies are possible late. Lows are in the 60s. Confidence: Medium High

A strong cold front is coming Wednesday, showers and storms are likely during the first half of the day. If the front stalls and storms arrive in the afternoon, they will be stronger.

Thursday and Friday Sunny, windy, low humidity and a high near 75. Clear and cool at night with lows in the 50s. Confidence: Medium High

Slightly warming towards it Weekend But – from this point of view – it’s still good. Highs near 80 both days with persistently low humidity. Nights should be clear and refreshing. Lows will be in the 50s to near 60 downtown. Confidence: Medium
