CommuteCast: Dog Days of August
Late-night storminess? Warm on Saturday
Today is day 23 of 90 degrees or higher at National Airport during 2008, but the good news for those who dislike heat is that we should be near or past the midway mark on those readings for the season. Mostly sunny skies have allowed most of the area to rise into the low 90s this afternoon, and warm conditions will continue into the night. Expect readings to fall back through the 80s during the evening then into the 70s around midnight.
Tonight: There should be no weather-related troubles through the evening. After midnight till around sunrise, a batch of rain and thunderstorms may approach the area from the northwest. Newer guidance suggests this precipitation will largely stay north of us, but any storms that move through may be capable of isolated damaging wind gusts and some hail. Rain or no rain, we'll see a fair amount of clouds, so temperatures will only drop to near 70 in the suburbs and mid 70s in the city.
Tomorrow: Following a risk of morning showers or storms, we will see more sunshine as the day progresses. Highs will once again rise to near or above 90 in most locations while a breeze from the northwest blows around 10 to 15 mph. Isolated afternoon thunderstorms cannot be ruled out, though the best chances for activity will be east and northeast of the area.
