it was a little breezy today with gusts up over 20 miles per hour and loads of sunshine today. high temperatures are a little slow to cool at least in the city tonight. we managed up into the lower 70s all three airports today, reagan national 73, dulles 72, the same for bwi marshall. again. s tonight while it is getting chilly -- temperatures tonight while it is getting chilly in the suburbs it's 66 degrees still in town. the win has dropped and the skies will be -- the wind has dropped and the skies will be clear and i don't see why eventually the temperature in town won't fall to the lower 50s, manassas 54, frederick now down to 50, culpeper 52. so again outside of town we're talking 40s easily overnight tonight. here in town probably looking like lower 50s or so. this is the weekend, 79 tomorrow, so it will be warmer than today. we will have some high clouds coming across, but it's going to be dry.
tricky day is mother's day. we'll stay in the upper 70s to right around 80. we are going to have some clouds. it looks like by sunday afternoon we'll be mostly cloudy and this is still a chance that we could have an evening shower, but i haven't changed anything. i don't see the chance is any better or less. so it looks like most of mother's day will stay dry. i think for some of us mother's day will be completely dry. we'll show you where we think it will rain in a second on futurecast. here we are tone, clear skies, notice back out -- tonight, clear skies. notice back out west we have some clouds coming in, very high thin clouds. as they come closer to us, they will dissipate. we're having high pressure build in. that will tend to suppress the cloudiness at least until tomorrow afternoon, but look at all the cloud cover coming out into the tennessee valley up into the ohio river valley. so it looks indeed like no matter what we're going to end up with a little cloudiness tomorrow. that high thin cloudiness and that storm system lifting out
of texas is eventually what could bring us a few showers around here on mother's day late in the afternoon and into the evening. tonight clear and cold, 40s in the suburb, right around 50 in town, maybe a little warmer. winds become west at 5 miles per hour. so a cool start tomorrow morning. we have plenty of sunshine at noon, 73. nice and warm in the afternoon, temperature about 79 for a high. that means i think some of you will probably be up around 80. this is tomorrow morning, completely clear on futurecast. notice some clouds by late afternoon. as we take you into mother's day, nothing again has changed. notice a few showers west and north, perhaps maybe a couple down south, but this is late in the day, okay? let's get most of mother's day dry. i think that will be the case or that's the way it continues to look now. temperatures in the upper 70s this weekend, middle 70s on monday, tuesday, wednesday chances for showers and even some thunderstorms.
