PM Update: A few clouds on Tuesday, but otherwise staying nice

We’ve started the week with amazing conditions, and that’s the general story for many days to come. Today’s highs near and past 70 are running a few degrees above normal, but compared to what’s ahead it might still be a bit cool. A warm front passing through with some clouds tomorrow is the only real “weather” we have to deal with for a while.

Through Tonight: We should stay mostly clear through the evening, with clouds increasing late night. Temperatures fall off fast after sunset, though we don’t get as far down as recent nights, with a range of lows from the mid-40s to the mid-50s (suburbs to downtown).

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Clouds may be somewhat numerous, particularly during the first half of the day, as a warm front pushes through the area. Overall, partly cloudy should do it though, with clearing likely in the afternoon if not prior. Temperatures are very warm, with mid-to-upper 70s pretty common.

Storms last Friday: The National Weather Service has confirmed that an EF-0 tornado touched down 2 miles northwest of Jarrettsville, MD last Friday. The path length was 1.2 miles, it was on the ground for 5 minutes, and maximum winds were 80 mph. Another tornado from the same system touched down later Friday evening in Pennsylvania, and was rated an EF-1 with a 16 mile path length.

Pollen update: Tree pollen is absent while grass, weed and mold spores are all low.
