PM Update: Another Nice Day Ahead
Sunny and mild Tuesday; Any 90s this week?
Though temperatures have climbed back to near normal the past few days, there's still not much to complain about around here when it comes to weather. Highs today topped out in the mid-to-upper 80s, but with lower dew points than yesterday, it didn't feel even remotely oppressive. Into the evening, just a shower or two is possible across mainly far eastern and southern parts of the area.
Through Tonight: There could be isolated showers or thundershowers, mainly east and south of the area, through the evening before partly cloudy skies trend clear by morning. Temperatures fall from the upper 70s near sunset to lows ranging from the upper 50s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-60s downtown D.C.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Tuesday should be quite sunny and again near average temperature-wise. The cold front hanging around will temporarily be shunted further south, so temperatures should be a pinch cooler than today while dew points once again stay rather low for July. Highs look to reach the mid-80s.
Sea-Level Rise: Wunderground.com's Jeff Masters has a new blog entry out today talking about how much sea level could rise over the next century. Various reports show seas rising from as little as 0.6 feet to as much as 6.6 feet. Based on a growing community consensus, Masters believes that the IPCC (2007) range of 0.6-1.9 feet is probably too low, and concludes that at least 1 meter (3 feet +) is more likely.
