CommuteCast: Taking the Heat

By Capital Weather Gang

Hot tomorrow, storms threaten late

Humidity levels dropped a hair today (was is noticeable to you?), but the heat has been relentless. Mid afternoon temperatures have soared into the low-to-mid 90s across the area. The commute home should be hot and dry, with very low thunderstorm chances.

Tonight: Air conditioners will continue working hard with temperatures only bottoming out in the mid to upper 70s downtown and near 70 in the coolest suburban locations. Rain is not expected with mainly clear skies

Tomorrow: Be ready for the last day in our current stretch of hazy, hot and humid weather. The steamy day may end with a bang, with isolated thunderstorms developing in the late afternoon, becoming more widespread in the evening. Highs will reach the mid 90s.

Loving the slightly more reasonable humidity today--I don't even mind when it's this hot as long as the dewpoints aren't too far out of sight. But 66 is still pretty sticky all the same.

Tropical triple sets another new record for July.

Instead of these boring articles about global warming what about doing a study on relationship between hot summer nights in the city and their relationship to the number of shootings? It shouldn't be that hard to do. You have access to the temperature records and the Post has the number of shootings in PG and DC.

The light breeze and the lower humidity were pleasant when I went walking in the park at lunch.
