While the tropics are hot, we’ve likely begun a period of very tranquil weather in the mid-Atlantic. A stray storm is possible this evening and then we have a rain-free forecast into early next week. 80s during the day, 60s at night. Except for the fact we still have a rainfall deficit, there’s a lot to like about this weather.
