PM Update: An Evening Shower; Thunder?
Sun tomorrow but on the cool side
Clouds, some showers and cool weather returned today, with highs generally topping out in the low 60s. Fortunately these conditions won't stick around nearly as long this time as the last. Clouds and the risk of a few more showers -- even a rumble of thunder -- persist into evening before clearing begins late tonight.
Tonight: We may see a few more showers this evening, with a thundershower or two mixed in, till around midnight. There should be just enough cloudiness around to keep temperatures from plummeting to way-below-average numbers. Still, look for chilly lows into the mid-40s for the suburbs to right around 50 in D.C.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): After some possible leftover morning clouds, mostly sunny skies return tomorrow as do temperatures closer to average. Highs will rise to right around 70 and a pleasant northwest breeze will blow around 5-10 mph.
VORTEX2: Last week I mentioned that VORTEX2 (Verification of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment 2) was about to get underway. It started yesterday, and now scientists are awaiting their first opportunity to chase storms. Tomorrow and Wednesday may provide exactly that, with severe weather now anticipated in the Plains. Follow the team as they attempt to learn more about tornadoes, and check out live feeds from The Weather Channel daily from noon to 2 p.m., or when tornadic activity is occuring.
