Look for sunny skies to yield to increasingly cloudy ones as Washington enjoys yet another mild day with light winds and highs around 60.  It will be blustery and much colder over the weekend.

This Afternoon: Partly Sunny, Continued Mild

Highs: 58-63 | Wind: S 5-10 mph

Tonight: Clearing Skies, Breezy, Cooler

Lows: 32-40 | Wind: NW 10-15 mph

Saturday: Sunny, Blustery, & Colder

Highs: 42-46 | Wind: NW 10-20 mph

While Thanksgiving leftovers are often just as tasty as food right out of the oven, so too is the leftover weather from yesterday's holiday!  The 60 degree high temperature on Thursday will likely be matched or surpassed today under partly sunny skies and  a southerly flow of air ahead of a cold front.  But Increasingly cloudy skies later today will herald a dramatic change in the weather as temperatures are likely to tumble 20 degrees to the low 40s on both Saturday and Sunday.  Along with the front tonight will come blustery northwesterly winds to exaggerate the chill -  the 10 to 20 mph winds tomorrow will make the temperatures feel like the low 30s.  The winds will subside on Sunday, but the mercury won't budge much from the lower 40s.  The silver lining throughout for travelers and shoppers alike is that both weekend days should be mainly sunny and precipitation-free.

Temperatures will moderate some early next week, rising to the seasonal norm of 53.  Showers are possible both Tuesday and Wednesday - a boon in what has been a rather dry month - before more chilly air arrives late in the week.  Enjoy this Black, yet Bright, Friday!
