CommuteCast: Quiet Summer Weather

By Ian Livingston

Hot and more humid Saturday

A rather quiet but warm to hot day has shaped up across the area today. High temperatures are now climbing to near 90 in many locations while a few puffy fair-weather cumulus clouds float by. Warm and dry (though you may already notice increased humidity with south winds returning) conditions will continue through the evening and into the overnight. Friday evening plans will be unaffected by the weather.

Tonight: Temperatures will fall to lows in the mid 60s for the suburbs, and around 70 in the city. Skies stay mostly clear as a south breeze keeps the air moving from time to time.

Tomorrow: Saturday should be much like today, but a little warmer and more humid (still not oppressive). Under largely sunny skies, high temperatures should top 90 in most locations. A continuing light south wind will help transport more moisture into the area, causing comfort levels to drop a bit as heat indices rise higher than on recent days.

See Camden's full forecast through next week, and check out NatCast if headed to tonight's game.

Rather dark clouds looming out my office window in SW DC right now...humid enough for a stray storm?

Stray storms are possible ~ cf my post of earlier today.

Looks like no rain for a while.

D.C. Hell Commence.

Uh oh. I'm sort-of missing the rain already.
