PM Update: Maybe a shower, then days of dry

By Ian Livingston

Lots of clear skies and warmth through Friday

Humidity took a tumble today but the warmth remained. Under mostly sunny skies and a moderate west wind, highs are now reaching the low 80s across much of the area. A quick and isolated shower is still possible this afternoon into early evening, but any that occur should be very limited in coverage. For the most part, the next three days should provide very pleasant, and also a bit warm, weather around here.

Through Tonight: Other than a potential passing shower through early evening, this is looking like a pretty nice one with temperatures falling back through the 70s into sunset. Lower humidity levels, mixed with mostly clear skies and slackening winds, help temperatures fall to lows ranging from the lower 50s in the cool spots to near 60 downtown.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Another pretty nice day, full of mostly sunny skies, is upcoming tomorrow. Morning temperatures quickly rise through the 60s and toward the mid-70s prior to noon on their way to afternoon highs reach the low-to-mid 80s. Winds are mostly light from the south or southwest with some gusts in the afternoon.

Weather on the brain: In a short article posted today, CNN explores why so many people seem to have "weather on the brain", both today and in the past. Included are several pictures of various weather events -- one from the February snowblitz here in Washington.

Very nice and calm this evening.

First mosquitoes sighted in backyard.
Otherwise it's a perfect evening.

Good thing I missed the forecast this morning (a 6!) because when I went out it seemed higher than that and I enjoyed it a lot. Maybe it was a 6 because I only got out at lunch?

Looking forward to a perfect 7 tomorrow (don't let me down Jason!)
