Date.weekday()

Date.weekday

Returns the day number for the Date-type attribute specified. Value range is 1-7. Days number from 1 (Monday) to 7 (Sunday). This numbering allows easy testing for weekday (#1-5) vs. weekend (#6-7).

This operator is read-only and cannot be used to change a Date attributes value.

$MyNumber = $MyDate.weekday; 

Thus if the day of $MyDate is Tuesday, $MyNumber would be 2.
