the clear skies and that means we will be getting chilly late tonight. but i think probably trick or treating will be well wrapped up by the time we head down to 33. a little cooler than last night. chilly skies and 45-degrees here in the district. so again not terribly you frosty, but patchy frost could happen if you're well enough far north and west. tomorrow, the difference is we add more cloud cover in and we add a few degrees to the high temperature. it could be a couple of spotty showers around, but generally it's more clouds than anything else. thursday we break the clouds up and it looks warmer. we're headed for about 74-degrees on thursday. so here's what to expect tomorrow. spotty afternoon showers as high pressure moves generally east. loads us up on the east wind. the warm front is going to come on through and that could squeeze out a couple of the showers. temperatures will be comfortable upper 50s, low 60s all around the region. here's an idea of what you can expect. maybe
