While today’s temperatures might end up a little above normal, particularly in D.C. itself, the lower levels of humidity and a little cloudiness have made it a pretty comfortable one out there. Unlike most of the summer, there’s no big heat lurking anywhere around the corner! In fact, perhaps the opposite. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves here in PM Update… After a nice evening and night tonight, we’ve got another warm one tomorrow with storm risks late.
Through Tonight: We start the evening with partly to mostly clear skies, and that may continue for a while. Overall, we trend cloudier by morning though. Lows fall to the upper 60s and low 70s. Humidity probably becomes more noticeable as well.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Partly to mostly cloudy skies greet the day along with a chance for showers, but rain chances probably increase (from 30% early to 60% late) heading through the afternoon. As a cold front approaches the area, there’s even a risk of strong to severe storms late day depending in part on how much morning activity is around. The main threat should be isolated to scattered damaging wind. Humidity is back in full force, and that makes highs reach the upper 80s to near 90 feel like 90s across the area.
7 weather facts: Wired has compiled some weather trivia worth a look. For instance, did you know former U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist was a weather man? How about the fastest a rain drop can fall? Check out the nerdy details.
Pollen update: Grass pollen is MODERATE, weed pollen is LOW/MODERATE and mold spores are MODERATE.
