Temperature Map

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

Despite lots of clouds, today was fairly benign as far as weather goes around here. Highs mainly rose to near 70. A light south wind has helped increase humidity to noticeable levels, and that may eventually help bring us a little more rain tomorrow.

Through Tonight: Skies remain mostly cloudy through the night. That cloud blanket, mixed with higher levels of humidity, should keep lows from dipping too far. Look for readingt to bottom out mainly in the mid-50s to near 60. Light south winds continue.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Clouds remain the general rule, though we could see a few breaks here and there early in the day. Any precipitation that falls tomorrow should be rather light, but odds of showers go up in the afternoon through at least early evening before the threat wanes overnight. Prior to any rain, highs reach the low-and-mid 70s most spots.

Make it snow?After recent years of sub-par snow in parts of the intermountain west, officials in Colorado are taking matters into their own hands. Water providers for the Denver area as well as several ski resorts are helping to fund a $1 million dollar cloud-seeding program. The program is being run by the Colorado Water Conservation Board, which has set rules like discontinuing cloud-seeding when the snowpack reaches a certain level.

Pollen update: Tree, grass and weed pollen are all low. Mold spores are low/moderate.
