Collapse your umbrellas and lose the travel fans: a storm of perfectly pleasant weather is about to overtake Washington. Are you ready for the severe niceness?

“It’s looking beautiful Monday, it will be wonderful on Tuesday and it looks really nice on Wednesday,” says ABC7 meteorologist Steve Rudin. The air will be less humid yet still streaked with sun. Rain is staying away and in general the outlook is “pretty,” Rudin says.

The air bubble will tamp down storm chances and waft cool air all over the Mid-Atlantic through the middle of the week. (Check out the radar for eye-gaping nothingness.) High temperatures are expected to range around the upper 70s these next three days, with nighttime lows nearing the ice-cube feel of 40 in the Potomac Highlands.

“We might actually see temperatures below average,” which is 84 degrees for June 13, Rudin says. “So it’s quite a shift from last week.”
