PM Update: Cold Front to Help Fall Get Going
Cooler on Friday, some showers possible?
Our final day of this stretch of well-above average warmth has come and is about to be gone. Just a bit of sun went a long way to help warm temperatures into the mid-80s many spots, with a few upper 80s thrown in. A cold front now swinging through the area is already helping to bring humidity levels back down and temperatures will follow. Rain chances remain very low headed into evening as readings fall back into and through the 70s.
Through Tonight: We stay mostly cloudy overnight, but some clearing could be noted by morning. I don't expect much if any rain for the area, but places south and southwest of D.C. may see a shower or two. Lower dew points should allow temperatures to fall lower than recent nights -- low 60s in the cooler spots to upper 60s in the city.
Tomorrow (Friday): You will notice the cooler air as we close the work week tomorrow. We may see some sun, but if the front gets hung up close we could still see a fair amount of clouds and even a few showers. Highs should shoot for the mid-70s -- not too far from normal this time of year.
Australian Dust Storm: If you caught any news yesterday, you likely heard about the major Australian dust storm that hit Sydney and other portions of the country quite hard. The worst dust storm in 70 years, authorities in the region estimate that millions of tons of sediment were moved during the storm. Boston Globe's The Big Picture has an awesome set of imagery showing what it was like the day the sky turned red.
