PM Update: Springtime at Its Finest
More sun and warmer temperatures on Wednesday
Today was arguably spring at its finest around here. After a chilly start that led to some records, including a 38 at BWI (besting 39 in 2003), temperatures soared to highs near 70 under super-sunny skies. Anyone with outdoor activities this evening will have few complaints as winds remain light and temperatures fall toward 60 around and after sunset.
Tonight: Chilly readings visit again tonight, though we will stay warmer than last night. Look for lows to hit the lower 40s in the coldest suburbs to right around 50 in D.C. Clear skies and light winds rule the night.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): We'll warm up a bit more under continued clear skies on Wednesday. Temperatures will once again rise quite a bit off morning lows, up to highs between 75 and 80.
Tropics: We are now less than two weeks away from the beginning of the 2009 hurricane season, and already there is an area of disturbed weather taunting Florida today. The system was designated Invest 90L while north of Cuba yesterday, but it has since dissipated. While the system is no longer expected to develop, it has provided some intrigue for those anticipating the season to come. See more from Weather Underground's Jeff Masters.
