Gosh is the sun hard to come by this September. Even after the morning and midday rains, clouds stuck around along and east of I-95. Some of our lucky western suburbs caught some afternoon rays, but they’ll be fleeting. Wednesday looks like another day with considerable clouds and occasional showers.
Through Tonight: We dry out a little bit and may see breaks in the cloud cover at times. So relatively speaking, it’s a decent night with mild overnight lows ranging from near 60 in the cooler suburbs to the mid-60s downtown.
Wednesday: Southerly flow transports an abundance of moisture. We may see a few peeks of sun at times, but, by and large, it’s mostly cloudy. Showers are possible at any time, with the best chance (50-60%) in the afternoon. Highs are in the mid-to-upper 70s.
Pollen update from Walter Reed: Trees, grasses, and mold spores are LOW. Weeds are MODERATE.
Weather Channel early winter outlook: WSI, a subsidiary of the Weather Channel, is calling for a cold late fall and early period over the eastern U.S. Excerpt: The primary ocean signals suggest the late fall and early winter period will resemble those of the last three years, with an early start to winter in the eastern US. While October should be relatively mild across much of the US, below-normal temperatures will become more common in the eastern US in November and across all of the northern US by December. Full outlook.
