Forecast: Sunny Skies for Several Days

By Jason Samenow

While the Gulf coast of Louisiana contends with the wrath of Gustav, Washingtonians are fortunate to sit high and dry this Labor Day. Both because it's a holiday and our coverage is focusing on Gustav, I'll keep the forecast narrative short and sweet today...

Major points:

  • Today and tomorrow it will be sunny and very warm but not humid. High temperatures will reach the upper 80s today, and near 90 tomorrow. Overnight lows will range from the mid 50s to low 60s tonight (suburbs to city), and upper 50s to mid 60s Tuesday night.
  • Skies will remain mostly sunny as humidity slowly builds Wednesday and Thursday, with highs near 90 both days. With the increasing humidity, overnight lows will warm from 60-67 to 65-70 (suburbs-city).
  • The remnants of Hanna may impact the metro area Friday into Saturday with rain and wind. We will be providing much more detailed information about Hanna's potential in future posts.

Stay tuned throughout the day for updates on Gustav.

I love this site but here is a fantastic link to see LIVE storm chaser coverage that CNN reported on during the outbreak of tornadoes back in the spring. I have been addicted to this site ever since and there are around 7 live streaming videos with GPS markers online at 6:45am this morning:
