PM Update: Chilly Night; Pleasant Wednesday
Temperatures rise a bit tomorrow
Blue skies, mixed with puffy cumulus clouds, combined for a quiet and enjoyable springtime day across the area. Temperatures remain a few degrees below normal (now in the mid-70s) with highs mostly reaching within a few degrees of 70. Sometimes gusty winds of today will begin to subside through the evening, setting the stage for a nice -- if somewhat cool -- one for outdoor activities.
Tonight: Temperatures will fall nicely after sunset thanks to mostly clear skies, light winds and low humidity levels. Look for lows to range from the upper 30s in the colder suburbs to the upper 40s in D.C.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): More sunny skies visit the area Wednesday providing quite a nice day. Highs should make it up a little past where they were today, into the low-and-mid 70s for many. Though we'll see a lot of sun, clouds should increase as the day wears on, perhaps trending mostly cloudy by evening.
FEMA: With the beginning of hurricane season just weeks away, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) may be one step closer to having a new head. Craig Fugate, currently leading Florida's disaster response operation, has been widely praised by both Democrats and Republicans, but Sen. David Vitter, R-La., was blocking the nomination due to concerns about flood zones (specifically V-Zones) in his home state. After receiving a written promise to address the issue, Vitter has dropped his hold, and Fugate will likely be confirmed before the full Senate this month.
