PM Update: Clouds to Break for Chilly Overnight

By Ian Livingston

Mostly sunny and cool on Tuesday

A fair amount of mid and high-level cloudiness throughout the day has kept temperatures a little lower than forecast as highs now reach the upper 60s and low 70s across the area. Expect these clouds to diminish the rest of the day while cooler air filters in behind a weak cold front.

Tonight: Overnight we will see mostly clear skies and chilly conditions. Temperatures should bottom out in the lower 40s in the cooler suburbs north and west of the city and the mid-to-upper 40s for the city and south or east.

Tomorrow: Even with mostly sunny skies tomorrow, temperatures won't rise too far. Expect readings in the mid or upper 60s across most of the area with light winds.

WOW! Look how tiny Tropical Storm Marco is! I used my Paint.NET image editor and overlaid the TS and a map of the NE US. The maps are the same scale. I've never seen a storm so small before...

They say Marco may become a Hurricane before landfall.

So when is our next big snowstorm?

Period: Tomorrow, hopefully.

weatherdudeVA: Make it happen please.

Marco is very small, which means it could intensify faster than a larger storm under similar conditions.

Look at the size of Marco compared to Norbert!
