We made it through another year of interesting (and sometimes wild) weather in Washington. What started as a cold and snowy winter ended on an extremely warm note. Now we have a phenomenal forecast to close the year — crisp, clean air and sunny skies. I can’t ask for anything better. Thanks, as always, for letting us be your source for weather in D.C. and beyond. See you in 2016.

Through Tonight: Skies are cloudy but dry in the final hours of 2015. Temperatures are cooler than we’ve recently been accustomed to, falling into the mid-30s to low 40s by midnight. Winds are chilly from the northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Overnight lows eventually drop all the way into the upper 20s in the coolest suburbs and the mid-30s around the Beltway.

Tomorrow (New Year’s Day): The sun comes out to ring in 2016. It’s a cool and crisp day with highs in the low to mid-40s, and winds from the west at 5 to 10 mph.
