Kids are back in school and summer is winding down, but traditionally, September weekends in the area feature nice weather—perfect for visiting local attractions.
But, how is the weather looking for our area looking this weekend?
If you are planning a weekend visit to one of the great museums or to see the Nationals take on the Marlins on Saturday, temperatures will be in the low to mid-80s, but take an umbrella with you as there is an 80 percent chance of rain in the afternoon, going down to 50 percent for the evening hours.
On Sunday, there is a slight chance of showers in the morning, with pleasant temperatures in the upper 70s.
Note that the Red Line is running shuttle buses instead of trains through downtown DC this weekend for scheduled track maintenance.
On Saturday, if you are heading down to attend the Fall 2012 Craft & Flea Market, tour a lighthouse or to enjoy the 45th Annual Maryland Seafood Festival, wear your raincoat—there is a significant chance of rain in the afternoon, with temperatures expected to climb into the mid-80s.
On Sunday, there is a smaller chance of rain, and temperatures are expected to stay in the mid-70s.
