WASHINGTON — Fall officially begins Monday, September 23rd at 3:50 a.m., the overall pattern will be a dry and warm one into the beginning of October.
While we could use some rain, we stay dry in the metro through Sunday with unseasonably warm to hot temperatures.
A cold front Monday night may trigger some isolated showers/storms Monday afternoon into the evening.
Saturday night: Clear to partly cloudy and comfortable. Low: 68.
Sunday: Mostly sunny and hot, but not that humid. High: 89
A great last weekend of summer with highs in the 80s to near 90.
While the sunshine may be nice, we really need some rain. This month we've only had just over a tenth of an inch of rain. We are in the first stage of a drought across much of the area.
Saturday night: Clear to partly cloudy and mild. Lows: 60s. Winds: Light.
Sunday: Mostly sunny and hot, but not that humid. Highs: 85 - 90. Winds: S 5 - 10.
