PM Update: Gusty Winds Wane This Evening
Mostly sunny and quite delightful on Thursday
As long as you don't mind messy hair, today was a fairly nice day around here. Winds that have gusted between 35 and 45 mph continue this afternoon -- mostly a nuisance, but also leading to some minor wind damage like downed branches. Even though a cold front passed by this morning, strong downsloping winds have allowed temperatures to rise into the mid-70s many spots. Winds have likely peaked and will dwindle into the evening and overnight.
Through Tonight: Winds may still gust to around 30 mph early this evening, but they should subside markedly before midnight as high pressure moves into the area. Under mostly clear skies, lows will tumble to the mid 40s in the suburbs to around 50 in D.C. By morning, winds should be down to about 5-10 mph.
Tomorrow (Thursday): A glorious day is coming up Thursday. Mostly clear skies and much lighter winds will be accompanied by temperatures rising to around 70 or into the low 70s. Clouds may increase a bit late in the day and evening.
Tropical Storm Henri: Much like its predecessors Ana and Erika which formed in the same general area of the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Henri is struggling mightily today and looks to weaken into a remnant low-pressure area in the next few days. After yesterday's brief blowup of thunderstorm activity near the storm's center, which prompted the National Hurricane Center to name the storm, strong wind shear has displaced the thunderstorms away from the center today. See our Hurricane Tracking Center to follow Henri.
