It's a bit muggy until the cold front passes.

More than 13 million people are under a red flag warning for extreme fire weather.

Michael joined a cold front, which helped rapidly intensify its winds over southeastern Virginia, leaving half a million people in the dark.

It is up to 17 degrees hotter than the coolest areas inside the District.

Monday will be warmer, but also wetter, as shower chances persist for much of the day.

Just a light breeze to add to the slight chill.

Cooler temperatures are finally taking hold.

We can’t recall such an abrupt and obvious change of seasons.

The storm left an indelible mark. Here are some of the key figures.

Is the television industry taking unnecessary risks and setting a bad example?

Fiona Simpson said the Australia hailstorm was terrifying, "but there was no time to be afraid."

Dipping a bit past average October weather, we may feel a bit chilly at times this weekend!

Michael is racing by the region, delivering a quick punch of rain and wind before it goes.

Up to seven inches of rain could fall in a swath from near Richmond to Salisbury, Md.
