A somewhat subjective assessment of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.
5/10: A bright day with invigorating cold.
- Today: Sunny, windy. Peaks: 45 to 51.
- This evening: Generally clear, cold. Minimums: 20 to 30.
- Tomorrow: Sunny, windy, cold. Peaks: 37 to 42.
The final days of November are colder than normal and feature the coldest weather since March. But December looks to be starting off with warmer than average temperatures, as temperatures climb back into the 50s. The weather looks dry until a chance of rain on Friday and perhaps at times over the weekend.
Today (Monday): Following the cold front that swept through overnight, we will have more and more sunshine and breezes. Highs range from the mid 40s to around 50, but dress for the 40s given northwest winds gusting 10 to 20 mph with a few gusts to 25 to 30 mph. Trust: high
This evening: It’s a rather clear night, but wintery. Lows extend into the 20s, but feel like the teens at times due to northwest winds gusting between 10 and 15 mph. Trust: high

Tomorrow (Tuesday): As the depression ends in eastern Canada, it circulates cold northwesterly air across the mid-Atlantic. Despite partly to mostly sunny skies, our coldest areas experience high temperatures only in the mid to upper 30s, with low temperatures in the 40s across the District. It is not completely excluded that we will see a morning snow squall, mainly to the west and northwest of the ring road. Wind chills hover in the 20s and 30s for much of the day with brisk northwest breezes at 15 to 25 mph, with occasional gusts over 30 mph. Dress for midwinter; this day will want it. Trust: high
Tomorrow evening: The coldest day of the season is followed by the coldest night. Under clear skies, lows dip into the mid 20s in the city center, with mid to upper temperatures in our colder suburbs. Wind chills affect teenagers across the region. Trust: high
The winter cold continues Wednesday, with highs of just 40 to 45 in sunny skies but the winds are dying down a bit (west and southwest breezes are blowing around 10 mph), so it’s more comfortable than Tuesday. It’s still quite cold Wednesday evening as lows range from the mid 20s (in our colder regions) to the 30s (in downtown). By THURSDAY, light south and southwest winds and partly to mostly sunny skies push temperatures to 50 to 55 degrees. Not as cold Thursday night with lows reaching into the 30s. Confidence: Medium-High
December is off to a slow start with highs in the 50s. Friday; we see increasing clouds as a storm system approaches from the west. However, it is expected to pass far enough to our north that afternoon or evening rain showers are likely to be light. The sky should gradually clear Friday evening with lows near 40. Confidence: average
THE weekend is a bit of a wild card as a storm system begins to organize towards the south. It will likely attempt to move north, bringing considerable cloud cover and perhaps some rain. The timing of any rain is still quite uncertain, but we’re leaning more towards Sunday than Saturday, which at the moment looks like it has a better chance of staying dry. Winds from primarily the south keep us mild through the weekend, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
