PM Update: Dreary Through Tonight, Then Nicer
Friday brings a weather 180; What about the weekend?
As CWG visitors madisondc and Bombo47jea noted in their comments earlier, this has not been a very nice day around these parts. Damp, dreary and cool conditions continue this afternoon after several rounds of drizzle and/or light rain passed through during the morning into early afternoon. One such wave is now exiting to the east, and while we're generally trending drier, some more drizzle or showers are possible. Highs have only hit the mid-and-upper 60s most spots -- well below average for this time of year.
Through Tonight: Looks like we stay cloudy through most or all of the night with the possibility of some patchy drizzle or light passing showers, mainly early. Temperatures that did not get too high will only fall back a bit, toward lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
Tomorrow (Friday): We should get some weather payback for dealing with today as we close the work week. Though skies could still be rather cloudy when you wake up, we should transition partly or mostly clear as the day progresses. A little sun should go a long way toward pushing us to near-normal highs in the upper 70s or lower 80s.
Cooling Into Fall: Whether you think fall is here already or it is still a few days off, beginning yesterday the average high temperature at National Airport dipped below 80 degrees (hat tip, Bob Ryan) for the first time since late May. Though this time of year is often quite pleasant, we do start losing warmth fairly quickly on average. In 4 weeks we will have dropped below the 70 degree average high and in 8 weeks it will be down into the upper 50s. Just a reminder for warm weather fans to enjoy days like tomorrow while they last. And winter weather fans: can snow be too far off?
