The cool, less humid air that moved into the Washington, D.C. area Tuesday will stick around into Saturday.

Most days will be sunny and warm, except Friday will feature highs only in the 70s.

Nighttime lows will generally be in the 50s and 60s. But, the outlying suburbs can get even cooler at night.

Some early-morning commuters from the northern and western suburbs along I-68, I-70 and I-83 may encounter patchy fog and slow travel.

The next chance of rain is not until Sunday, when a reinforcing cool front arrives from the northwest. A few spots may get a shower or thunderstorm on Sunday, but most of the time through Sunday will be rain-free for outdoor plans. Sunday will also be warmer and a tad more humid.
