PM Update: Spring Sunshine a Memory Tomorrow
Cloudier Friday with a chance of showers
Spring made a welcome appearance today, and it was a pretty glorious one at that. Under partly to mostly sunny skies, temperatures have made a run to the low-and-mid 60s this afternoon. Winds that have calmed down quite a bit have not added much chill to the air. Pleasant conditions will persist through the evening as temperatures fall back through the 50s near and after sunset.
Tonight: The evening will start partly cloudy before skies trend mostly cloudy toward dawn. Any rain coming should hold off till tomorrow. Lows will range from near 40 in the coldest suburbs to the mid-40s in D.C.
Tomorrow (Friday): Friday appears rather cloudy with a few showers and possibly a thundershower. Though showers will be possible from the morning on, most of the rainfall during the day should be pretty light and scattered. With plenty of clouds around, look for highs to rise into the 60s. Some heavier rain is possible Friday night and into Saturday morning as an energetic storm passes very close to the area.

Climate Engineering: The president's new science adviser, John Holdren, says the Obama administration is discussing the idea of using technology to purposely cool the Earth, or geoengineering. Some ideas being thrown around include launching pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays and the creation of artificial trees that will suck up carbon dioxide. CWG's Steve Tracton explored the issue of geoengineering in this recent post.
