CommuteCast: Warm with a Risk of Showers

By Ian Livingston

Warm again Saturday; unsettled late in the day

Radar: Latest D.C. area radar loop and light-
ning strikes (key) from Weather Underground. Click here to zoom. Refresh page to update.

Sun, filtered through high cloudiness, has helped warmed temperatures into the upper 70s to low 80s across the area today, and some more breaks in the clouds are expected over the next few hours. Showers and thundershowers have now developed over West Virginia and these will track towards the area, while diminishing in intensity, this evening. Many places will stay dry, but a period of showers, and maybe some thunder, will be possible around sunset.

Tonight: After a risk of evening showers and thunderstorms, clouds will help keep temperatures up tonight. Expect lows to fall to within a few degrees of 60 at most locations.

Tomorrow: Another warm one is shaping up for Saturday. After some peeks of sunshine in the morning, skies will trend back to cloudy as the day progresses. Winds from the south, ahead of a cold front, will help highs reach the upper 70s to low 80s, and will probably bring noticeably higher humidity as well. A line of showers and thunderstorms could arrive from the west during the late afternoon or evening. The greatest chance for moderate rainfall totals looks to be from D.C. and towards the north.

See NatCast for tonight's game at Nationals Park and Camden's full forecast through the weekend.

No dance this weekend, but there's a big one next Friday the 2nd of May. (Expect severe weather all evening a week from now.)

Where's the UnitedCast? We are going with my daughter's soccer team to the game tomorrow night.

El Bombo: I'm beginning to think that you have secretly sent the CWG your dance schedule, and whenever you have a dance coming up they just predict bad weather. That's the TRUTH behind the CWG accuracy!

-"Should we use the weather models for next Friday?"

-"Nahhhh, just check Bombo's schedule."

;P You know I'm just joking with you. That does suck that you always get bad weather on your dance days. Imagine if you danced outside! Eek!

That's a really cool looking radar right now. It brings literal meaning to the term "popcorn showers/storms."

Christina -- UnitedCast (and NatCast) appears on the day of the game. Will be posted as of 5 a.m. tomorrow. So make sure to check the site when you wake up in the morning, and of course enjoy the game!

I hope the latter half of Maryland Day isn't rained out.

That's by the way. :)
