PM Update: Some Clouds, But Still Dry For Now

By Ian Livingston

Warm, a little muggy Tuesday; showers or storms late

Clouds: Latest mid-Atlantic infrared satellite loop, courtesy Unisys. Click here to expand. Refresh page to update.

After an unsettled few days, today has been a nice respite. High pressure building in overhead has kept the area dry, though some cloudiness has kept things from heating up too much. Highs have reached the mid 70s in most locations, and pleasant conditions will last through the evening as clouds tend to dissipate.

Tonight: The drier air of today will allow for cooler readings overnight. Expect temperatures to drop to the mid 50s in the suburbs and to right around 60 in the cities. Skies should be mostly clear, though isolated areas of fog are possible late at night into the early morning.

Tomorrow: We start Tuesday mostly sunny and dry. A brief resumption of a moisture-laden flow from the south will bring increasing clouds and the chance of showers or thunderstorms by late afternoon and early evening. Before any rain arrives, highs will reach the upper 70s to around 80. The best chances for widespread activity look to remain north of the area. A risk of precipitation should last into the night.

I'd rather experience the next Great Tropical Depression. The more rain, the better.

Hahah, nice way to divert conversation back to weather. ;)

The NHC thinks that Subtropical Storm Laura from NWDC might become regular Tropical Storm Laura from NWDC in the 11PM advisory, and Laura from NWDC has a 40% chance of becoming a hurricane by tomorrow.
