Weather to Deliver Holiday Weekend Spectacular

Jason Samenow @ 5:00 AM

The weather doesn't get much finer than it will be this Labor Day Weekend. Warm, sunny days and refreshing nights will delight both Washingtonians and out-of-town visitors.


Nice Day StampSpectacular, Part I. High pressure to our north (centered over Ontario and Quebec) will bring us mostly sunny skies, low humidity and seasonably warm temperatures. Temperatures will likely max out in the low 80s with a pleasant northerly breeze at around 10mph. Clear skies and comfortable temperatures overnight, with lows 59-65 (suburbs-city). Consider turning off the A/C.


Forecast Confidence: HighSpectacular, Part II. As high pressure shifts slightly south and east to a position over the Mid Atlantic and Northeast, we can expect another mostly sunny day. High temperatures should be near 80 with little wind. Overnight, expect clear skies with lows 60-65 (suburbs-city).

Labor Day

Forecast Confidence: HighSpectacular, Part III. High pressure will shift offshore, allowing winds to become southerly. This will increase temperatures and humidity a bit, but it will still be pretty darn nice. Look for highs in the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. Some high clouds may increase late ahead of a weak cold front.

Tropical Update

Tropical Depression #6 strengthened into Tropical Storm Felix overnight and is now near the southern end of the Windward Islands. Felix is likely to stay on a west northwest track over the next several days and could threaten Central America or the Yucatan by Tuesday or Wednesday.
