October keeps delivering nice day after nice day.  So let’s keep it going!

Wednesday is yet another winner, practically flawless.

Through Tonight: Pleasant this evening, but grab the fleece as temps fall back from the 60s and into the 50s under clear skies.  Early morning lows, not as cold as the last few nights, range from the low 40s in our cooler suburbs to the low 50s downtown.  Light winds.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Uninhibited sunshine helps temperatures sprint through the 50s and 60s in the morning.  By mid-afternoon, highs reach the low-to-mid 70s.  Winds are light from the south and southwest, around 5 mph.

Orionid meteor shower: Pre-dawn Wednesday and Thursday mornings and after moon set (12:30 a.m. and 1:34 a.m. locally), offer the best opportunity to catch a few shooting stars during the annual Orionid meteor shower. EarthSky says about 10-20 meteors may be visible darting across the sky each hour. See its article for additional details: Everything you need to know: Orionid meteor shower. Mostly clear skies should promote good viewing in the D.C. region.
