PM Update: Light Showers for Evening Commute
Cool & gray through Thursday; warmer Friday
Summer temperatures have gone back into hiding for a while as more typical April showers visit the region today. Highs near 70 occurred just after midnight, before cooler air started filtering in; daylight readings have struggled to get out of the 50s. Rainfall totals have been light but may get a boost from any additional showers this afternoon and early evening.
Through Tonight: Light showers will linger during the late afternoon and possibly into early evening, then most of the evening and overnight (from around 7 p.m. onward) should just be cloudy and cool with mist or drizzle possible. Temperatures should settle to lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. Winds continue light from the east.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Clouds and cool temperatures stick around Thursday. Additional light showers will be possible, though most of the real activity should stay to our north and west. Highs will top out near 60 or maybe into the low 60s.

National Climate Service: Following testimony on the Hill yesterday, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke endorsed the creation of a new National Climate Service at NOAA. The new office is intended to fill an information gap in climate studies and would be set up similar to the National Weather Service. A hearing on creating the service is scheduled for next week at the House Science and Technology Committee. CWG's Steve Tracton will also explore the issue here soon.
