A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10. 5/10: Tough temperature forecast, but either way it’s warm or really warm, and too humid for April. EXPRESS FORECAST Today: Partly to mostly cloudy, slight chance of shower or storm. Highs: Upper 60s to mid-80s.
Tonight: Mild, areas of fog possible. Lows: Mid-60s to near 70.
Tomorrow: Partly sunny, chance of showers/storms late. Highs: Upper 70s to low 80s. View the current weather at The Washington Post headquarters. FORECAST IN DETAIL Cooler ocean air trying to work in sets up a temperature battleground across the region today, with anywhere from the upper 60s to mid-80s in play. This warm and humid air mass lasts into tomorrow, before a cold front comes through tomorrow night, ushering in a breezy but pleasant midweek. Today (Sunday): Temperatures start off mild, in the mid-60s to near 70. But partly to mostly cloudy skies and a light wind from the east, courtesy a nearby cool front, should keep them in check compared to yesterday. Areas north and east of the Beltway may see consistent clouds stall highs in the upper 60s to mid-70s. Near and inside the Beltway we should get into the 70s to near 80. While a bit more sun could push areas south and west of the Beltway into the mid-70s to mid-80s. That said, anyone in the metro area could see highs as cool as the upper 60s to mid-70s or as warm as the mid-70s to mid-80s, depending on where the front sets up. With plenty of humidity still around, we have a slight chance of an early-morning shower and a late-afternoon thunderstorm. Confidence: Low-Medium

Tonight: Winds turn more from the southeast and south later this evening and overnight, leaving us with summerlike mugginess. Expect mostly cloudy skies, with some of areas of fog possible, and lows only dipping to the mid-60s to near 70. Confidence: Medium-High Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest updates. For related traffic news, check out Dr. Gridlock. Keep reading for the forecast through midweek … Tomorrow (Monday): A cold front approaches from the west as we start the workweek. But ahead of it, we should manage at least some partial clearing. Partly sunny skies early help our temperatures rise to the upper 70s to low 80s for highs, with humidity still in the noticeable range. Watch for increasing clouds by afternoon, though, and we could see a line of showers and thunderstorms approach from the west toward evening. Confidence: Medium Tomorrow night: That line of showers and storms could come through the area from west to east during the evening. There’s some question as to whether it holds together, but if it does, then a few storms could bring gusty winds. After that, partial clearing is possible as lows drop to the upper 50s to low 60s behind the front. Confidence: Low-Medium A LOOK AHEAD Tuesday looks to be quite pleasant, with the front having cleared the humidity away. Winds are rather breezy from the west-southwest, as highs reach the mid-70s to near 80. We’ll stay breezy and mostly clear Tuesday night, with lows falling to the low-to-mid 50s as cooler air works in. Confidence: Medium-High We’re still on the breezy side Wednesday, and noticeably cooler as well. Overall it looks to be a fairly fantastic spring day, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low-to-mid 70s feeling quite refreshing after our early taste of summer. Confidence: Medium-High
