PM Update: Mild Through Tomorrow; A Shower?
Warmth to get booted by cold front late Thursday
While it's the first full day of fall, high humidity and warm temperatures combined to produce a late-summer feel to the air. Despite the threat of some showers, most spots have not seen much rain the past few days even though some forecasts (not so much here) have called for such. That same general idea works today, though we could still see an isolated shower or storm into evening. Highs that rose to the low-and-mid 80s will be slow to cool thanks to high humidity and clouds.
Through Tonight: It looks like a warm and muggy evening with the outside risk of a shower. We should lose the shower chances after midnight but a stray sprinkle is possible. As dew points remain high and skies stay mostly cloudy, overnight lows should only fall to the mid-60s in cooler spots to around 70 in the city.
Tomorrow (Thursday): We see more clouds and probably breaks of sun Thursday with a chance of afternoon showers or storms, mainly south of the area, as a cold front moves through. It should again be quite warm -- almost hot given the time of year -- as highs rise to the mid 80s many places, with maybe an upper 80 or two. More typical late-September air starts filtering in by evening.
DCHenge: Maybe you've heard about NYC's Manhattanhenge -- two days each year when the sun sets right down the middle of the street grid. Tonight is "DCHenge." Same general idea, different city. Tonight, the sun will set right down the middle of Washington's lettered streets. Though we lack the tall buildings of NYC that help produce the effect, the Washington City Paper reports that prime spots to see DCHenge are K and L streets.
