Transition to fall temperatures begins Thursday after record-breaking October highs hit DC area

After a record-shattering Wednesday where all time record highs in the upper-90s were set around D.C., Maryland and Virginia we're taking a break from 'Hot-ober!'

FOX 5's Sue Palka says we'll begin the transition to cooler air Thursday with high temperatures that could vary widely depending on where you live.

Comfortable highs in the 70s could be in the cards for northeastern Maryland, while D.C. and northern Virginia look to head back to the low-to-mid-80s.

While temperatures begin trending down Thursday, we also have a chance for a few showers especially north and east of the D.C. area.

A second cool front crosses Thursday night and the feel of fall will be even more noticeable by Friday and Saturday.
