The summer and early fall of 2007 will be remembered for its many nice days with rain the sacrificial lamb. After a cold front squeezed out just a trace of rain at Reagan National (also a trace at BWI, but 0.59" at Dulles) Thursday into Friday, we begin another dry stretch to last until at least late next week.
TodayBright and Breezy.
High pressure building in from the northwest will give us low humidity and a ton of sunshine. Afternoon temperatures should reach the mid to upper 70s with northerly winds of 10-15mph. Overnight, winds will diminish and temperatures will dip down to the low 50s in town, but mid to upper 40s in spots like Fairfax, Reston and Gaithersburg.A harvest moon photographed over the Iwo Jima Memorial Wednesday night by CapitalWeather.com photographer Kevin Ambrose.
SundayMostly sunny, pleasant.
Mainly sunny skies should prevail but for a few fair weather cumulus clouds in the afternoon. High temperatures should reach the upper 70s with a light north wind at 5-10mph.
