I can't promise you a completely cloudless day on Sunday. But I can make that promise for Monday

Well, it’s official, Harvey is dead.  Of course, dead in the tropical realm does not mean we escape all impacts to our weather. A convoluted series of fronts and redeveloping low pressures (courtesy of Harvey’s remnants) will slowly make their way off shore tonight, eventually leaving us with dry and pleasant weather for the remainder of the weekend.

Through Tonight: Dreary conditions persist through much of the overnight period. Scattered showers and drizzle will gradually taper off from west to east late tonight. Otherwise, we are stuck in the muck with little change in temperature or cloud cover. Lows ranging from 60-63 degrees with an east wind at 5-10 mph and some patchy fog developing.

Tomorrow (Sunday): Scattered showers possible in the morning, especially to the east of the Beltway. Sunday will be a mostly dry day with more seasonably warm temperatures. Mostly cloudy for the first half, with some partial sunshine in the afternoon. Temperatures ranging from 76-80 degrees with a gusty west wind at 10-20 mph. Chance of an isolated thunderstorm late, especially south and west of the city.

Labor Day (Monday): Easily the pick of the holiday weekend. High pressure is firmly in place, providing mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80s.

Summer hiatus: Sure, summer doesn’t officially end until September 22nd. But around these parts, we are used to the summer like heat lasting beyond the autumn equinox, especially the overnight heat. So it’s refreshing to see the coolest start to a D.C. September in 8 years (2009). It should be noted that in 2009, DCA did not record one September 90 degree reading.
