Today's Forecast

FROM ABC7’S BRIAN van de GRAAFF | FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK AND FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: @ABC7BRIAN

Warm air remains in place for a few more days…in fact it may actually be hot!


We did it…we hit 80° yesterday at DCA, the first time since October 24th! Dulles peaked at 81° and BWI Thurgood Marshall topped out at 78°. Today, we continue the warm trend as an area of high pressure parked off the eastern seaboard helps pump in the unseasonably warm air! I am expecting lower to middle 80s under a partly cloudy sky. Tomorrow brings a stronger push of warm air and many locations will peak in the mid to upper 80s with areas south of town flirting with 90°! I will mention that with energy passing north of the region both later today and later tomorrow there is a slight chance for a late sprinkle each day, but they will be few and far between with any occurrences mostly north of DC.

Thursday will be warm with lower 80s but clouds will thicken through the afternoon as a cold front approaches. Some late-day/evening thundershowers are possible with a high likelihood overnight into early Friday. At this point it would appear skies clear Friday with gusty breezes and temperatures in the lower 70s before dropping back for the weekend. Have a great day and enjoy the heat!

Tree pollen was high at 321.73 Grains/ Cubic Meter…biggest offenders being Cedar, Cypress and Juniper.
