PM Update: Enjoying a break in the heat

By Ian Livingston

Mid-week rain risk; Temperatures near average

Sometimes gusty northwest winds, plus passing clouds and even a shower or two northwest of the city, have helped keep temperatures in the mid-and-upper 70s this afternoon. The good news for those who are liking these more seasonable -- or even a bit below -- temperatures? The heat is not coming back right away. The forecast for tomorrow could also be termed "pretty sweet" before rain chances return and threaten to sully the midweek.

Through Tonight: This is one of those evenings you have to spend outdoors if possible. Any clouds leftover from today dwindle as the sun sets and skies become mostly clear overnight. Temperatures fall from near 70 around sunset to lows in the low-and-mid 50s in the suburbs to the upper 50s downtown.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Mostly sunny skies and a refreshing breeze join forces to create another delightful day on Tuesday. Temperatures climbing out of the 60s around lunchtime rise toward highs mainly in the upper 70s.

Weather and politics: Yahoo's weather application on the Apple iPhone has ruffled some feathers following an update over the weekend. Users interested in current conditions, and the future forecast, for Jerusalem must now choose between "East Jerusalem" and "West Jerusalem." As may be expected, this change has caused something of a storm. Israel's Ambassador the U.S. sent a letter to both companies and expressed disappointment that "Jerusalem, which has been united for 43 years, has been divided by the computer giant and the popular search engine."

Wish they could have timed that Wednesday rain a bit better--it's not needed whenever I have to run errands out in the slop--now calling for almost an inch!

I was certainly out, in the park across the street at Iwo Jima. Only problen is that there were quite a few bees buzzing around distracting me from my reading. Saw a few lightening bugs the other night for the first time this year.

This just in! DCRTV has posted that Doug Kammerer, recently of Philadelphia, but apparently a native of Fairfax County, will become the new chief weathercaster at WRC4 in August--does this mean that Tom Kerein could be on the way out??? DCRTV says also that Kammerer is "replacing Bob Ryan".
