At least 100 trees were reported down in the District. Mid-90s are likely Tuesday but it won’t be terribly humid.

The worst of the storm will focus north of Tokyo.

Low 90s for highs the next several days, but they fall into the 80s by Friday.

Keep an eye to the sky as scattered downpours may get a few of us wet this evening.

We all know dry heat feels more bearable than humid heat. This measurement explains why.

It's not as nice as the last few days but today is still passable. Tomorrow and beyond, less so.

Flash-flood watches are up for much of Arizona and New Mexico as well as other parts of the broader region.

Highs over the coming week could peak around 90 degrees each afternoon. Tokyo's may end up being among the hottest Olympic Games on record.

Temperatures and dew points trend higher in the days to come. Storm chances return, too.

Conditions remain about as good as they get in late July around here.
