PM Update: Partly Cloudy and Quite Nice

By Ian Livingston

Warmer, still pleasant on Wednesday; Hot end to week

* How Many 90-Degree Days at DCA? | An Atlantic Sunrise *

Our stretch of mostly nice weather continues today with partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures. Highs are now reaching the low-to-mid 80s across the area as puffy cumulus clouds float by overhead. Another spectacular evening is ahead, and unlike yesterday, there is no chance of rain anywhere.

Through Tonight: Temperatures drop through the 80s and into the 70s by sunset before settling to lows in the mid-60s most spots. Skies remain partly cloudy while light north winds continue.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): A lot like today, with plenty of sun, but just a bit warmer. Temperatures should step up one notch, into the mid-and-upper 80s for highs, as we trend toward more typical summertime conditions for the rest of the week. Light north winds may switch to come out of the west late in the day.

Sarychev Peak erupts on June 12, as seen from the international space station.

Volcano from Space: Astronauts aboard the international space station captured an amazing image of Russia's Sarychev Peak during the initial stage of a recent eruption. The image shows both a towering ash and steam plume as well as a cloud hole caused by the eruption. Scientists believe the hole is caused either by a shockwave or sinking air around the plume. See a larger image here.
