90s re-enter the picture to greet summer's start

Another awesome day is under out belts, hope you enjoyed it and this great evening as well, because things are about to get a little uncomfortable around here. Highs ranging from the mid-to-upper 80s are feeling pretty nice thanks to continued low humidity levels with dew points in the rather comfortable 50s. For those keeping track at home, we stand at 7 days above 90 degrees in D.C. this month and it looks like we're about to add at least a handful more over the coming period...

Through Tonight: After spending some time outside last evening I am looking forward to doing so again today. Temperatures dipping into and through the 70s around sunset will fall to the low-and-mid 60s for lows. South winds signal a return to higher humidity which should be noticeable by sunrise.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Saturday will have its plusses and minuses. On the positive side, we'll see a ton of sunshine. On the negative side, there's going to be plenty of heat and humidity. Morning temperatures quickly rising through the 70s, and into the mid-80s around lunchtime, will top out near 90 or into the lower 90s in the afternoon. Humidity should be high, but not quite at the unbearable level.

China flooding: With plenty of flooding in the news lately, we can add another location to the list. This time, portions of China including the capital of Beijing. Rain has been pounding parts of southern China since Sunday. Storms have caused nearly 70 deaths thus far as well as causing mass cancellations of flights and many other traffic nightmares.
