Magnificent Mid-October

Jason Samenow @ 12:35 AM

Just a week ago we were sweating in the humidity and 90-degree heat, wondering if autumn would ever come. In a blink of an eye, temperatures are down 20 to 25 degrees and fall is suddenly in full swing. But whether it's warm or it's cool, rain doesn't seem to be in the cards. It's now been 27 days since there's been any measurable rain at Reagan National Airport.


Nice Day StampDelightfully crisp. If you're out early, put on a warm-up jacket as temperatures will begin the day mainly in the 40s. Abundant sunshine should then allow temperatures to steadily rise though the 50s in the morning. By late afternoon, high temperatures should reach the upper 60s to around 70. Winds will be from the west-northwest at around 10mph. Overnight, clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to drop quickly, with overnight lows 40-45 (suburbs-city).

Forecast Confidence: HighSunny and comfy. Once again add a layer if you're headed out early; but you'll be able to shed it by noon. Sunny skies will help high temperatures reach the low 70s with west to northwest winds at 10-15mph.
