A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10. 6/10: This day would score high in March, but it a bit chilly for May’s second week. EXPRESS FORECAST Today: Mostly sunny. Highs: 60-64.
Tonight: Clear and cold. Lows: 34-44.
Tomorrow: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs: 62-66. View the current weather conditions at The Washington Post headquarters. FORECAST IN DETAIL Temperatures are cooler than normal this entire week but at least it’s dry and sunny for the start of it. It’s cold enough that some of our outlying areas may see frost early Tuesday.  The second half of the week takes a turn for the worse with periodic showers and the potential for a weekend coastal storm. Today (Monday): Pass the hot cider – as it feels like a crisp late October morning. We awaken to crisp temperatures in the 40s (and even a few 30s in our coldest spots), but a full dose of sunshine boosts them into the low 60s during the afternoon. There’s a bit of a breeze from the northwest at around 10 to 15 mph, gusting over 20 mph at times. Confidence: High Tonight: The breeze eases and temperature tumble under clear skies. Some patchy frost is possible in our colder areas as lows there fall into the mid-to-upper 30s. Inside the Beltway, lows are more in the range of 39-44. Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend… Tomorrow (Tuesday): We get off to a cold start, but temperatures make a nice recovery by the afternoon. Under partly to mostly sunny skies, highs range from the low-to-mid 60s. Confidence: Medium-High Tomorrow night: It’s our third straight crisp autumn-like night. Under clear to partly cloudy skies lows range from the upper 30s in our colder spots to the upper 40s downtown.
Confidence: Medium-High A LOOK AHEAD Wednesday is likely to be the week’s mildest day as highs make a run at 70 degrees under partly sunny skies. Increasing clouds at night with lows in the 40s to near 50. Confidence: Medium-High A front is stalled just to the south of the region Thursday and Friday keeping us on the cloudy side. Areas of low pressure passing along the front could bring on and off showers, but they may focus more south of the metro region. Highs both days are in the 60-65 range, with overnight lows near 50. Confidence: Medium A storm may develop near the Mid-Atlantic coast over the weekend and move very slowly northward. This means rain is possible although it’s too soon to declare the weekend a washout. The storm may not materialize and, even if it does, it probably won’t rain the whole time. It seems more rain would be likely to fall Saturday than Sunday, but that could change. Irrespective of exactly what happens with the coastal storm, we have confidence it will be cooler than normal with highs mostly 60-65 and lows near 50. Confidence: Low-Medium
