PM Update: Another frost chance before warm-up
Temperatures head for the 80s Friday, higher after?
Limited sunshine this afternoon has been no match for the chilly air mass overhead and highs are only ranging from the mid-50s to near 60. When you add in a gusty northwest wind, it's feeling a bit more like mid-March than late April. To top it off, frost is a possibility yet again to the west and north of the city. If you have any cold-susceptible plants, you may want to tend to them for (hopefully) the last time before fall.
Through Tonight: We've got another chilly night ahead, but perhaps a degree or two warmer than last night most spots. Evening temperatures settle through the 50s on their way to overnight lows in the upper 30s for the suburbs and low-or-mid 40s downtown. Any clouds of early evening will disperse as the night wears on. Winds will still blow, but lighter than last night, so we'll have to be on the lookout for some areas of frost yet again.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Mostly sunny and pretty nice! Unlike today, cool morning temperatures quickly rise toward 60 before noon and ultimately to highs near 70 or into the lower 70s. Winds will pick up again during the day, though not as strong as recently, probably sustained around 10 mph with higher gusts.
Snow (old & new): Snow piles? Those are long gone, right? Well, not all of them apparently. A team of UVA students has been observing "Mt Chipotle" in Charlottesville, Va. since December. What once was a gigantic mound of partially-white snow has made it through April, all while becoming a fairly gross patch of dirt-like slush. And if you're wishing today's cool air was accompanied with some late-season snow, just check out what happened in New England yesterday and today (pic)!
