PM Update: Unseasonably warm weather continues

Temperature Map

Temperatures: Latest D.C. area temperature map. See interactive map on our Weather Wall.

October has brought nothing but 80-degree days so far, and Friday keeps the streak of balmy weather going.  These temperatures are averaging more than 10 degrees above normal.

Through Tonight: Partly cloudy, and you could mistake it for August.  Too mild to turn off the A/C for most, with lows in the low 60s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-to-upper 60s downtown.  Light winds.

Tomorrow (Friday): Considerable cloud cover at times, but we’re on the warm side of a front draped to our north.  Highs once again elevate to the low-to-mid 80s, with lights winds from the west at 5-10 mph.
