PM Update: Dry Spell Hits Homestretch
Transitional day Friday as storm system approaches
Programming note: As some of you may have noticed, commenting now requires registration. We really don't have anything to say that the lovely Dan Steinberg at the DC Sports Bog hasn't already said -- "Apparently you now need to log in to leave a comment here.... This will rid the Bog of all those hundreds of thousands of anonymous troll commenters. Oh, that's right, we have none of those here. But log in anyhow. Do it for your children."
So there. Log in and comment away. For the kids. Now, back to the weather...
Another sun-filled but fairly chilly day -- the 22nd in a row without measurable rain -- has shaped up across the area. Highs are now reaching the mid 50s just about everywhere, and winds have become significantly less of a nuisance compared to the last two days. Mostly clear skies will persist through the rest of the afternoon and evening.
Tonight: We will see a repeat of last night with cold temperatures and mostly clear skies once again the stories. The chillier suburbs should fall to near freezing as the D.C. heat island stays closer to a "toasty" 40 degrees. Winds will be light from the east.
Tomorrow: Friday will be a transitional day as the first signs of Saturday's storm system arrive. Morning sunshine will give way to increasing cloudiness throughout the day while temperatures rise to the upper 50s to near 60 for highs. Winds continue from the east and they should increase by late in the day. Shower chances should hold off till very late in the evening, and then become likely after midnight and during the day Saturday.
