Sunny skies, light winds and warm temperatures will highlight the afternoon but changes are on the way to end the work week.

This Afternoon: Sunny & Warm

Highs: Near 70 | Wind: Light

Overnight: Clear and Cool

Lows: 40s | Wind: Light

Wednesday: Mostly Sunny, Pleasant

Highs: Upper 60s | Wind: SE 5 m.p.h.

High pressure continues to be the main weather feature with sunny skies locked overhead along with light winds and warm temperatures. Highs should approach the 70 degree mark this afternoon before quickly falling through the 60s and 50s. Overnight lows should settle in the 40s to upper 30s in the suburbs under clear skies. Tomorrow should continue to be pleasant with highs in the upper 60s under mostly sunny skies.

The same system which spawned tornadoes in Oklahoma yesterday will move into our region by Thursday.  Here's a video of a tornado yesterday afternoon in southwestern Oklahoma from TornadoVideos.net.

The majority of the energy will be displaced well to the north so nothing more than a few showers is to be expected in the D.C. area. Highs will only reach near the 60 degree mark Thursday. Behind that system on Friday, gusty winds will help usher in a much colder airmass with highs only in the lower 50s under partly sunny skies. Temperatures are expected to moderate for the weekend, reaching the upper 50s for Saturday and lower 60s by Sunday.
