PM Update: Some July Heat Minus the Humidity

By Ian Livingston

A little cooler, still mostly sunny, Wednesday

* UnitedCast | An Amazing D.C. Fireworks Show | June Recap *

A gusty west-to-northwest downsloping wind has helped boost temperatures to near-and-above average today, which is something of a rarity as of late. Highs are now reaching the upper 80s to near 90 in many locations, and this heat could cause a very isolated shower to pop up prior to sunset, but humidity levels are rather low, so little or no activity is expected.

Through Tonight: Dew points in the fifties will help make this warm evening feel very pleasant as temperatures fall to near 80 around sunset. Otherwise, look for mostly clear skies and lows ending up near 60 to the mid-60s.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): July continues to throw us some delightful weather Wednesday as sunshine (and low humidity) once again rules the day. Temperatures should come down a notch from today thanks in part to a northerly wind. Highs should still have little trouble rising to the low-and-mid 80s.

Forecasting Turbulence: A new National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) system may help prevent turbulence-related air disasters, suspected as a cause of the June Air France crash over the Atlantic. The NCAR system combines satellite and weather model data to predict areas of rapidly strengthening storms as well as turbulence occurring away from storms. The new system will go into full testing on trans-oceanic flights next year and should be complete in about two years. Read more.
