Eek! It is going to be a beautiful but chilly day today as temperatures only rise into the mid to upper 50s (some areas MAY see 60). We will get some sunshine and some clouds but nonetheless, a dry day today. Temperatures overnight will fall into the mid to upper 30 and low 40s around D.C. We will start off with some sunshine tomorrow before more clouds move in during the afternoon hours. Temperatures on Friday will continue to stay in the upper 50s. The trick or treat forecast looks good – unless you are west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Around D.C., temperatures will fall to around 50 degrees by the time the sun sets on Friday (6:09p.m.) with cloudy skies. West of the Blue Ridge, after about 8p.m. there could be some rain showers as an upper level low shoots out of the north moving to the south. Eventually everybody in the region will see some rain showers and chances increase after midnight. Saturday, an area of low pressure will be working its way up the coast bringing rain and winds. Cooler air will be upon us, as temperatures will be in the 40s to lower 50s. Winds will be breezy through the day and increase in speed during the evening hours. In fact, wind chills by the evening hours will be in the 30s! Winds continue on Sunday but we will get some sunshine as high pressure begins to move in and the coastal low treks north. Temperatures on Sunday will still be cool, in the 40s. Good news is that we gradually warm up back into the 60s by mid next week.
