We are expecting some sunshine this afternoon but temperatures will remain well below average.

Today:Becoming party sunny but remaining chilly
Highs: 48°-52°
Wind: NW 8-12 mph

Overnight:Mostly clear and colder
Lows: 26°-34°
Wind: N 2-5 mph

Election Day: Chilly with a.m. sunshine/ p.m. cloudiness                      Highs: 45°-49°
Wind: NE 3-6 mph

Cloudy skies across the metro area kept morning lows more comfortable than in areas west of the Blue Ridge where clearing skies allowed temperatures to drop closer to freezing. Cloudiness will diminish today but temperatures will only climb to around 50 degrees. Clear skies and much colder temperatures are likely tonight. Election Day will feature morning sunshine but the clouds return later in the day. This will be in advance of yet another coastal low pressure system. HOWEVER,this will not be another Sanday. But depending on exactly where it forms and where it moves, could bring a cold rain to the region on Wednesday into Thursday. It is possible some wet snow could be produced in areas north and west of Washington before the storm pulls out on Thursday. Gusty winds and rain could affect parts of the northern mid-Atlantic and southern New England.

Computer models are teasing us with a significant warming trend for this upcoming weekend.
