PM Update: Finally Hot and Muggy, For Now
Cloudier, still quite warm Friday; Thunderstorms late?
In what has been a relatively cool summer so far, today is one of the hottest or the hottest day of the season for many, and humid too. Plenty of sunshine has led to temperatures rising up to and past 90 in most locations. For those keeping track, it's day 4 of 90+ at National since June 1, and day 5 this year (we hit 92 on April 26). Outside an isolated shower or thunderstorm, things look quiet through evening.
Through Tonight: This evening will be partly cloudy and muggy with the risk of an isolated shower or thunderstorm through sundown as temperatures settle through the 80s. The rest of the night should continue partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-70s downtown.
Tomorrow (Friday): Another muggy July day tomorrow with some thunderstorms possible in the afternoon and evening. There should be a good bit more clouds around compared to today, so highs will likely only rise to the upper 80s or near 90. Any storms that form could be strong, with the highest odds of severe weather to the south and east.
Winter 2009-2010: If you're ready for winter, Accuweather's Joe Bastardi has got something for you to look at. He believes this winter currently looks similar to that of 2002-2003, one which dumped copious amounts of snow in the Northeast Corridor. Unlike the last two winters, he thinks the primary storm track will be right up the coast giving us more chances for snow. What about the rest of summer? Not terribly hot, but plenty humid, according to Bastardi. Read more.
