PM Update: July Heat to Follow September-like Day
Near-normal temperatures, not too humid, for Wed.
We're just days off our typically hottest time of the year, but today's mild temperatures and low humidity just might have made one forget about summer! Dew points temporarily dropped into the upper 30s across parts of the area today and still hover in the low-to-mid 40s most spots. In fact, heat indices, with highs in the mid-80s, have been running lower than the actual temperature thanks to the dry air. Now we watch our amazing day transition to a perfect evening...
Through Tonight: After a glorious evening with sunset temperatures falling through the upper 70s, we head into another cool July night. Temperature should fall into the mid-and-upper 50s in the suburbs to the lower 60s downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Another mostly sunny day is scheduled tomorrow, though temperatures and humidity will both be on the rise. Dew points should rise through the 50s (still drier than average) to near 60 late, thanks to a south wind, as highs reach the upper 80s to near 90. Some increase in clouds is likely late.
Shuttle Launch: Last Wednesday, I mentioned that weather could mess with this past Saturday's scheduled launch of shuttle Endeavour. Indeed it did, more than once. The initial launch scrub on Saturday was due to numerous lightning strikes on or near the pad. Yesterday, weather disrupted the third attempt in four days to launch the spacecraft. They'll try again tomorrow at 6:03 p.m. Current forecasts give a 60 percent chance of "go."
