PM Update: (Mostly) Quiet Weather, for Now
More widespread showers and cooler Wednesday
Like yesterday, isolated slow-moving showers and thundershowers have popped up, bringing some locally heavy rain. Plenty of clouds have held tough across the rest of the area and more of the same is on tap through tonight. Temperatures have risen into the mid-and-upper 70s most spots as cooler marine air bleeds into the area. Tomorrow we head well-below average temperature-wise as the easterly flow becomes even more well established.
Tonight: After isolated evening showers, tonight will mainly just be cloudy, but a new area of showers may advance on the area from the south and west by sunrise. Temperatures will settle back to the low 60s most spots, cool though clammy as abundant low-level moisture sticks around.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Off-and-on showers are likely throughout the day and into the evening Wednesday as skies stay pretty cloudy. The maritime flow will also keep things cooler as highs should climb to around 70, perhaps into the low 70s.
It looks like most spots should see about .1-.25" of rain through tomorrow evening, but it's still rather uncertain where the best rains will setup, so totals could be higher or lower.
Climate Impacts Report: The White House released a new report on global climate change and launched a new Web site on the subject this afternoon. The report (available here) -- billed as "the most comprehensive and authoritative of its kind" -- details the impacts of climate change on the U.S. in the present and future. CWG's Ann Posegate will explore the details of the report for the area and country as a whole tomorrow.
