la ray with pockets of fog out here in northern virginia. right now it's 33 at dulles airport. so 30s in the suburbs here for the next couple of hours. a fair amount of sunshine coming our eye with temperatures in in the low to mid-60s. the rain we dealt with yesterday is moving away. then we'll see a change in the weather to arrive during the afternoon with a weather front coming on by. it's starved of moisture, so i'm not expecting much of a rain chance, though i do think it will have the ability to bring some cloudiness in here after lunchtime today. the computer model i paint out a random sprinkle or two. the air at the surface is too dry for that, but we'll have clouds mid to late afternoon. not much in the way of a rain chance. here's the ten-day forecast, 60s today and tomorrow. closing in on 70 for friday. and saturday will be a mild day, but showers likely saturday, late afternoon into the evening. that could be mixed with wet snowflakes in the mountains saturday night into early sunday. and it will be a chilly week for thanksgiving next week. good morning, melissa.
