PM Update: Steady rain to turn showery
More showers tomorrow and moderating temps after
Rain has been fairly widespread today if not terribly heavy. Most locations around the area have picked up about .20-.50" thus far, with some more to come into tonight and tomorrow. Overall, good news for places that have missed out on recent hit-or-miss thunderstorm activity. Temperatures have struggled to get out of the 50s most spots this afternoon after reaching highs generally in the low 60s this morning.
Through Tonight: Today's steady light rain may increase a bit before beginning to depart by evening, but showers, some moderate and long-lasting, continue on and off through the night. Another batch of steadier rain may threaten by sunrise, as low pressure develops off the coast, yet the heaviest activity should stay just to our south and east. Temperatures slowly dip to lows near 50 or in the low 50s.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): The developing storm system moves north to a position just offshore to our east by tomorrow afternoon. Most of the steady rain with this storm should stay to our east, but intermittent showers are possible through much of the day and I'd check back early tomorrow to make sure it doesn't creep in closer. Highs reach the upper 50s and low 60s. Winds could occasionally gust, from the northeast, to around 20 mph or higher.
Bob Ryan & Kim Martucci: After much recent speculation, it's official: Bob Ryan joins WJLA as of today. Ryan takes over the 11 p.m. time slot from Doug Hill, who will continue working the late-afternoon/early-evening broadcast. The two will join forces during severe weather events, and Ryan says "he can't wait to develop the weather pages" for TBD.com, the new local news site scheduled for launch this summer by WJLA owner Allbritton Communications. In other local TV weather news, Kim Martucci will be working with NBC 4 part time, appearing on weekends.
