We can finally say goodbye to Florence and hello to a much brighter and quieter weather pattern!
High pressure sliding into the area today will keep us sunny and unseasonably warm. High temperatures will soar into the mid to upper 80s with a slight drop in humidity. Dew point temperatures will be in the mid 60s. Most neighborhoods will remain dry today; however, areas west of D.C., in Virginia, could see an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm. The best chance for this is around Winchester, Warrenton, and Culpeper. Everyone will be clear and comfortably cool overnight with lows in the upper 50s in our coolest suburbs to mid 60s downtown.
Tomorrow will be dry and comfortable with a few added clouds. High temperatures will be a few degrees lower in the low 80s. Humidity increases Friday with dew points back to around 70 degrees and high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. It may feel around 90 with the humidity, but what a way to officially end summer.
Fall arrives Saturday. The autumnal equinox occurs at 9:54pm. It will still be quite warm with highs in the low 80s. The humidity will start to fall, as a cold front slides through. Saturday continues to trend dry, but with the front south of us Sunday there may be a few showers around. Temperatures will be cooler in the low 70s with even lower humidity.
