PM Update: Quite Nice for August

By Ian Livingston

Warming up a bit Tuesday, still mostly sunny

* Climate Study Projects Hotter Augusts for D.C. *

Muggy dew points of Saturday transitioned to moderate yesterday and have reached comfortable levels today as light north winds bring drier air in, at least temporarily. Along with lower humidity, mostly sunny skies have led to temperatures rising into the mid-80s. This is close to average for the date, cooler than we've seen much of the month and cooler than we will see the next few days. This evening looks fantastic, and it should remain dry.

Through Tonight: Prepare for a beautiful evening with temperatures falling into the upper 70s around sunset and just a passing cloud or two. Lower levels of humidity and continued mostly clear skies should allow for a decent range of lows. Temps bottom near 60 in the coolest suburbs to near 70 in the D.C. heat island.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Look for lots of sun and warmer temperatures. We will stay mostly sunny throughout as highs to rise to the upper 80s and near 90. Light winds should shift from north to east during the day.

Tropics: Hurricane Bill is now just a memory for the U.S., but it appears we won't have to wait too long to track the next feature. An area of disturbed weather, east of the Caribbean islands, is forecast to drift west over the next few days and it is possible it could develop into a tropical cyclone. It's much too early to know what becomes of this, though some guidance is hinting at an East Coast threat come weekend... Stay tuned.
