Quiet and dry overnight as an area of high pressure dominates the weather forecast. Mainly clear skies will allow temperatures to fall into the upper 30s in the mountains to middle 40s in the District. Some patchy fog may develop during the early morning hours Monday, but mainly west of D.C.

Look for sunshine and highs in the lower 70s on Monday. With high pressure moving to the east, return flow will usher warmer air across the mid-Atlantic Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will approach the upper 70s to lower 80s. In the coming days, Tropical Storm Sandy is expected to develop and may impact parts of the mainland United States.
