Highs: 47-52 | Rain: 70% Chance

Tonight: Cloudy, Drizzle & Areas of Fog

It was yet another mild and misty morning in the Nation's Capital in what has become a predictable weekend pattern.  For the third weekend in a row, morning clouds and fog are slow to erode as afternoons struggle for a few peaks of sunshine.  Today, however, will be mostly devoid of even a few rays as a nearly stationary front brings unsettled conditions throughout the day.  Look for mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with mist, drizzle, and occasional rain.  Temperatures will change very little, holding in the upper 40s and low 50s.  

Monday should be mostly cloudy with morning fog and afternoon rain.  The big story however will be the soaring mercury as highs could reach 70 degrees!  A late day front and a wind shift to the northwest will then bring some heavier rain and a return to more seasonable temperatures and sunshine for the remainder of the week.

NOTE: After the first cooler than normal month all year in November, this month is reverting to type with the monthly average to date a whopping 6.4 degrees above the norm.  This past Thursday was the only really chilly day this month with its 44 degree high; every other day has been in the 50s, 60s or 70s.   Enjoy these mild temperatures while they last!
