      In a month when Washington's trademark heat and humidity are often frequent - witness last Tuesday's 92 degrees and muggy dew points - yesterday turned May on its head with a pleasantly cool spring day!{} With a high of just 69 at Reagan National and an average reading of 61, Saturday was the second coolest day{}this month.{} With low humidity and{}gentle breezes, it was a day to savor.

      With a trough in the jet stream and high pressure still in control, today will be yet another delightfully cool day with partly to mostly sunny skies.{} Once again, highs will hover in the mid to upper 60s.{} Our good fortune{}should continue through Tuesday with slightly warmer readings both days in the mid 70s.{} Skies will remain sunny and humidity levels comfortably low.{} A front at midweek will end our reverie as skies turn mostly cloudy, dew points rise, and temperatures head back to the lower 80s.{} Showers and thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday.{} Thereafter, temperatures cool back to 70s.{} Looking ahead to Memorial Day weekend - yes, it is already nigh! - partly sunny and seasonably mild days are likely.{} Enjoy your Sunday!
