By Ian Livingston

A July heat wave looms

Mostly sunny skies and low humidity levels have combined to create a lovely mid-summer day across the region, and high temperatures are now reaching the mid and upper 80s in most locations. Expect mostly clear skies throughout the evening as readings fall back to the pleasant upper 70s around or just after sunset.

Tonight: Skies stay mostly clear overnight and temperatures once again drop a good bit thanks to lacking humidity. Expect temperatures to fall to the low 60s in the suburbs and around 70 in the city. Winds will be light and variable overnight.

Tomorrow: Here comes the heat! We stay mostly sunny on Wednesday, with continued lower levels of humidity. Temperatures should hit 90 or higher just about everywhere as a light and variable wind continues during the day.

The big heat issue comes later this week. As I posted earlier, Tom Skilling just forecast a four-day 90 degree heat wave for Chicago; this could easily translate into 4-6 such days for Washington. Alas, we won't have a rain-free weekend, but the thunderstorms will be scattered and some areas may escape rain altogether.

What happened to Weatherunderground? All afternoon I've had a message that says that "site is under construction...registered with Network Solutions". Can't say that I've ever seen a message like this. Especially from a site that is supposed to be ranked in the top twenty sites in the world.
