PM Update: December In, Hurricane Season Out
Partly sunny Tuesday and continued cool
Mostly cloudy skies, combined with temperatures rising to around 50 degrees and winds gusting to 30 mph, made this first day of December feel just a bit wintry. A thin band of briefly moderate showers and thundershowers affected parts of the area this afternoon, but no further precipitation is expected this evening as temperatures drop through the 40s.
Tomorrow: Tuesday will be partly sunny, cool, and continued breezy. High pressure moving into the area won't help temperatures rise too high as we reach the mid-to-upper 40s across the area. Winds will be lighter than today, but still should blow around 10-15 mph before decreasing by evening.
Hurricane Season Ends: Yesterday was the last official day of hurricane season, although hurricanes have formed as late as Dec. 31 (Alice, 1954). Jeff Masters has a wonderful recap of the season, highlighting a slew of records that were set, including most consecutive U.S. storm landfalls, costliest Texas hurricane (Ike), smallest tropical cyclone on record (Marco), furthest east forming hurricane so early in the season (Bertha), and highest hurricane wind gust recorded over land (Gustav, Cuba).
