CommuteCast: Dry and Mild

By Ian Livingston

Warmer Thursday as humidity returns

July continues to show off its best as yet another beautiful and humidity-free day unfolds across the area. Temperatures are rising to highs mostly in the mid 80s this afternoon, under partly cloudy skies and accompanied by a nice breeze from the west. Expect splendid summer conditions to last the rest of the afternoon, through the evening, and into the nighttime hours.

Tonight: A wind from the south will begin to transport slightly higher levels of humidity into the area and temperatures should respond by staying a little warmer than what we saw the last two nights. It should be rather pleasant, with lows falling to near 60 in the suburbs and the mid to upper 60s in the city. Skies overnight will be mainly clear.

Tomorrow: Thursday will be mostly sunny, warmer, and a touch more humid (not oppressive, but noticeable) than today. Expect highs to top out right around or just above 90 in most locations while a warm wind from the southwest blows around 10-15 mph. Some increase in clouds is possible late, but storminess should stay away for at least one more day.

See Dan's full forecast through the holiday weekend, and check out the detailed July 4 outlook to see if you may need to dodge storms on Friday.

Love that NPS camera shot from the Netherlands Carillon. That was always one of my favorite features of, because it provided a quick, up-to-date look at the conditions. Any chance of getting it back on the front page of CWG?

For the umpteenth weekend we seem to be dealing with another stalled frontal boundary focusing a threat of stormy/severe weather in the area. No big dances but possible evening activities three of the next four nights.
