WASHINGTON - Record setting temperatures could be in store for D.C. on Friday! The FOX 5 Weather team says the region could hit the 80 degree mark sometime later this afternoon.
If it does, that would make it the warmest November 6th on record. The current record for the day is 78 degrees in 1948.
This would also be the third latest 80 degree temperature reading ever at Reagan National.
Temperatures this high - this late in the year - aren’t unheard of, says FOX 5’s Gary McGrady. But it is unusual, especially having so many nice days in a row. Over the last three day, temperatures were in the low to mid 70s.
But don’t get used to this summer-like weather, says McGrady. After today’s high of 80, we can expect temperatures to get back to normal. Look for a high in the mid-60s on Saturday and then a drop to the 50s on Sunday.
80 today would be a record high. Doesn't happen very often. pic.twitter.com/5IGk093Hvy— Gary McGrady (@garyfox5dc) November 6, 2015
