Temperatures reached the 70s for a second day in a row. And for a second day in a row, few if any clouds were to be found. Although we will increase the cloudiness tonight, it looks like we’ll also manage a third nice day in a row Wednesday. This string is fairly exceptional for the time of year, given the rapid end to “nice day season” seen through October.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Clouds may still be clearing the area in the morning, but the day should end up largely sunny. Temperatures are probably a touch cooler than today. Not truly cool, though. Highs are near 70. Winds are from the north around five to 10 mph, with some gustier moments.

Cold to warm: Dulles made it to 75 today. Impressive on its own in November, but consider the low was 35 this morning. Yep, a 40-degree rise in temperature. This is partly thanks to dry air near the ground, which is able to warm quickly. There was also a temperature inversion, where warm air was sitting on top of very shallow cold air. As the sun rose and some wind kicked up, the warmer air quickly “mixed” down to aid in the warmth. Other places on the East Coast also saw huge temperature spreads today.
