A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10. 9/10: Thought about a perfect score with highs heading for the low 70s sweet spot, but hedging slightly given potential for some clouds. EXPRESS FORECAST Today: Partly sunny. Highs: Upper 60s to mid-70s.
Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows: Upper 40s to mid-50s.
Tomorrow: Chance of PM showers. Highs: Mid-60s. View the current conditions at The Washington Post headquarters. FORECAST IN DETAIL We’ve got another nice one on tap today, and we should salvage part of tomorrow before rain chances increase by afternoon. While perhaps not as intense as we saw late last week, periods of rain do look likely late Thursday into Saturday, with improving conditions for Mother’s Day. Today (Wednesday): Partly sunny skies and moderating temperatures make for another nice day today. Morning readings climb into and through the 50s, and afternoon highs reach the upper 60s to mid-70s, perfect for a post-lunch stroll. Winds are light and variable. Confidence: Medium-High
