November arrived in late November-like fashion with gray skies and chilly temperatures. We might even squeeze out a few light rain showers this evening. For the most part though, it’s just cloudy and cool and stays that way through a good part of Friday.

Through Tonight: There’s a 20-40 percent chance of evening showers, with the best odds north of the District. Otherwise, it’s mostly cloudy and chilly, with lows from the mid-30s in the cooler suburbs to near 40 downtown. Winds are from the west at 5-10 mph.

Friday: Skies are mostly cloudy and it remains brisk, though a bit warmer than today. Highs reach the mid-50s. We might see a few breaks in the cloud cover, especially in the afternoon. Maybe we reach the upper 50s with enough sun. Winds are from the west at 10-15 mph.
