An inch of rain or so may fall overnight.

The worst is almost over.

The Leonids have a history of producing amazing light shows.

The Tidal Basin looks remarkably different from season-to-season, with each possessing its own beauty and charm.

It's only mid-November.

On Monday, the National Hurricane Center gave it a 90 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm by Friday.

Scant rainfall, hot temperatures, high winds and plentiful fuel are to blame, as well as rising temperatures, spurred by climate change.

When it’s not raining this week, it’s cooler than normal with highs temperatures only in the 40s to around 50.

Another cold night is on tap before more rain moves into the area by Monday evening.

It ranges from much cooler than normal to a little cooler than normal in the days ahead.

The Camp Fire tripled in size after ravaging the town of Paradise in Butte County, north of Sacramento.

Two fires have bracketed Thousand Oaks, the same city where a gunman killed 12 people before killing himself.

The commute home is wet, but most of the weekend is dry.

Even downtown areas should reach freezing as colder suburbs spend most of the night in the 20s.

It's a chilly but eventually increasingly pleasant long weekend for leaf peeping locally.

A rainy commute home is possible tonight. At least we clear tomorrow and conditions calm for Sunday.

Our short dry spell is coming to an end.

Thousands are fleeing the fast-moving blaze, which has damaged and destroyed structures in the town of Paradise.
