The strangest thing happened late Wednesday afternoon. A bright, shining object appeared in the sky and melted a weeks’ worth of gloominess off our collective shoulders and provided a beautiful sunset. On Thursday, the sun will appear first thing in the morning and provide 11 hours and 36 minutes of daylight. In addition to that, temperatures will once again return to the 70s where they belong. Clear skies overnight will team up with all that soggy ground and lead to quite a bit of fog early Friday morning with temperatures dropping into the low to mid-50s. Friday afternoon will also be mild with temperatures reaching the mid-70s before clouds begin to build in the afternoon. Those clouds are coming along with a cold front that will drop temperatures dramatically for the weekend. There could also be one or two pop-up showers along with the front but rain chances are generally 20% or less and will not impact your plans.

The weekend will be chilly but there will be plenty of sunshine. Highs on Saturday will barely crack 60 degrees but with very little wind and abundant sunshine, it will be a gorgeous October day. Sunday morning will be cold. The rural areas and sheltered valleys will drop into the upper-30s while D.C. and areas near the Bay will drop into the low-40s. Sunny days with highs in the mid to upper 60s are on tap from Sunday through Wednesday.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny with a light breeze. Highs in the low to mid-70s.

THURSDAY NIGHT: Few evening clouds with patch fog by dawn. Lows in the low to mid 50s.

FRIDAY: Sunny morning but afternoon clouds and breezy. Highs in the low to mid-70s.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny and breezy at times. Highs in the mid-50s to low-60.

SUNDAY: Sunny. Very chilly start with a mild afternoon. Highs in the low to mid 60s.
