PM Update: Here Comes Another Batch of Rain
Warmer Wednesday, some more showers possible
Flood Warning for the Potomac River at Point of Rocks
Surprise, surprise! More clouds visited us today and more rain is on the way. Temperatures have warmed up a bit more than yesterday as highs top out right around 60. Now we wait on the next batch of rain that's currently advancing toward us from the south. Unfortunately, it should arrive just in time to mess with the evening commute.
Tonight: Rain, moderate to heavy at times, should last till around midnight before tapering off. 0.25-0.50" can be expected with this batch, and some higher totals are possible where heavier showers hit. Temperatures should drop to the mid 50s, maybe low 50s in some spots. Some fog and drizzle is possible into morning.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): As the warm front lifts north of the area, we finally get back into some spring-like air tomorrow, along with some extra humidity to boot. Much of the day should be dry and cloudy, though another batch of rain will pass by to the west and bears watching. Highs should top 70 throughout most of the area. By evening, rain chances should go up again as more activity may move in from the west.
2008 Hurricane Retirees: The National Hurricane Center has retired three Atlantic hurricane names from last year: Gustav, Ike and Paloma. Names that are not retired go into a 6-year rotation schedule. In the place of those retired we will see Gonzalo, Isaias and Paulette (should there be enough named storms in 2014).
