A cold front pushed through the region last night and behind it plenty of sunshine, lower humidity and cooler temperatures will settle in. Highs should only be in the mid 70s today with breezy winds at times out of the northwest around 10-15 mph. Tonight will be clear and chilly with lows in the 40s in the outlying suburbs and in the low 50s in the immediate D.C. Metro. The Autumnal Equinox is tonight at 10:29pm.
The first few days of fall on Tuesday and Wednesday will feature high pressure over the region which will allow for sunshine and comfortable temperatures slightly below average in the low to mid 70s. We are keeping our eye on Thursday as a weak area of low pressure moves up the east coast it may introduce clouds back to the region.
