NBC4 meteorologist Chuck Bell says that there is hardly a cloud east of the Mississippi -- meaning sunshine all weekend long for Washington.
From Portland, Maine, to the Gulf Coast, skies are clear and the weather is mild. The sunny skies should hold through Sunday afternoon, when temperatures will cool slightly.
Colubmus Day should be another golden day. Even the Atlantic Ocean is looking out for us: Hurricane Otto is moving away from the U.S., just in time for the holiday weekend.
A chance for rain returns to the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday and Wednesday, so stay outside until then.
