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.
