CommuteCast: Continued Cool, an Isolated Sprinkle

By Ian Livingston

Warmer and sunnier on Friday

Partly to mostly cloudy and cool conditions have persisted today. High temperatures are now reaching the upper 60s as a gusty wind from the west and northwest continues. An isolated sprinkle is not out of the question this afternoon, but they should be few and far between.

Tonight: Another chilly night is on tap across the area. Expect lows to once again fall into the middle 40s in the suburbs and to right around 50 in the District as skies trend to mostly clear. Gusty winds of today will subside overnight, becoming light by morning.

Tomorrow: We finally begin to lose the effects of a low pressure system that has been stuck to our north in Canada. On Friday it pushes out to sea, which means less in the way of clouds and more in the way of warming temperatures. Even so, highs will remain a few degrees below normal as we reach the low 70s just about everywhere. Winds will blow from the northwest around 10 mph.

Near Linden, at about 8:30p, I noticed something up in the sky. At first I thought it was a plane, but it looked like it was at an extremely high altitude, too high and with too short of a contrail to be a plane. The trajectory was such that it appeared to be falling.

I have never before seen a meteor before dark, but I believe that's what I witnessed this evening.
