PM Update: Nice, really nice, especially for November

Probably a close call as to who’s more thankful for today’s fabulous weather - the retailers, or the shoppers bouncing from store to store beneath glorious sun and highs that reached the mid-to-upper 60s most spots, with a few 70s around too. These temps are some 10-15 degrees above normal. More great news for all: same deal Saturday. Sunday’s no slouch either, but clouds will hold temps back a few degrees.

Through Tonight: Skies are clear to partly cloudy. You’ll want to throw on an extra layer, as temperatures fall back through the 50s this evening into the 40s. Early morning lows range from the low-to-mid 30s in the cooler suburbs to near 40 downtown.

The weekend: Saturday is pretty much a carbon copy of today, so expect a “Nice Day Sun” in tomorrow morning’s forecast. Highs range from 65-70 with coolest readings near the Bay and Potomac River. Sky conditions are mostly sunny, with high clouds most apparent in the afternoon. Partly cloudy Saturday night, with lows from the upper 30s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-40s downtown. We may see some partial sunshine Sunday morning, but clouds become more dominant in the afternoon. We keep with the mild flow from the south, so highs remain well above normal, in the low-to-mid 60s.
