Today was a “step down” kind of day. We stepped from summerlike conditions back toward something more typical for this time of year. We’ll take another step tomorrow, and it’s one that will deliver us a delightful day.

Through Tonight: Clearing skies and decreasing humidity should lead us to a seasonably cool night. Most spots end up in the 50s, but it will be closer to 60 in the urban centers. Some parts of the north and the west could even sneak an upper-40s. Winds are light out of the north and northeast.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Clouds were a bit stubborn today, but that shouldn’t be the case tomorrow. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny, and humidity will be low. Add in highs in the mid-70s to near 80, and I dare you not to call in sick (or take a long lunch). Winds will be out of the northeast around 5 mph to 10 mph.

Cooling down, slowly: Although I wouldn’t expect Dulles to hit the 40s tonight, we’re about right on time, should it happen. The average first 40s low there comes Sept. 12. Last year, it wasn’t until Oct. 12. Inside the Beltway, we still may have a ways to go. The average first low in the 40s for the District comes along Oct 4.

In the meantime, here’s some snow in the mountains of California on Monday. Think cool.
