Tomorrow (Tuesday): Another beautiful day is ahead. Skies are partly sunny, and winds are lighter. Highs reach the mid-60s to about 70. Winds around 10 to 15 mph early in the day swing around to come from the south and weaken later in the day.
Windy: It was quite a windy day behind last night’s storms. Gusts at major reporting sites all topped 40 mph at one point or another. Here’s a look at the highest gusts so far reported:
- Baltimore-Washington International Marshall Airport: 48 mph
- Andrews Air Force Base: 46 mph
- Dulles International Airport: 44 mph
- Washington: 41 mph
This has caused sporadic wind damage and power outages, which may be a problem into the evening before winds taper off.
Pollen update: Tree pollen is HIGH at 772.52 grains per cubic meter. Mold spores are also high. Grass pollen is low.
