PM Update: Sweet Wednesday sunshine

Today’s sunshine was glorious, but when the wind whipped around, there was a bit of a chill in the air, especially with maximum temperatures only up to around 65. Tomorrow we take away some of the wind, and add some warmth. The end result? Just about perfect fall weather conditions.

Through Tonight: Clear and crisp, with quite the range in low temperatures. Those in town dip into the upper 40s, but if you live around Damascus, Frederick or Leesburg, upper 30s are more like it. Winds are light.

Wednesday: One of the week’s best days. Skies are sunny and temperatures cruise up to near 70 degrees. Winds are light, initially calm before coming out of the south at 5-10 mph during the afternoon.

Hurricane Paul: Packing winds to 75 mph, Paul is very close to making landfall along the west coast of the Baja California Peninsula near Cabo San Lazaro. The 5 p.m. (EDT) National Hurricane Center advisory said Paul is weakening rapidly, but cautioned several inches of rain are possible along with tropical storm to hurricane force winds near where landfall occurs.
