PM Update: Steamy heat enjoying local stay
Another scorcher tomorrow, late-day storms?
Our second day in a row with temperatures rising above 95, combined with heat indices around or past 100, is not feeling too swell. But, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel once we get past another scorcher tomorrow and follow-up, hopefully lesser, heat into and through the weekend. Then again, as some will claim: It's D.C., it's summer and it's almost always hot.
Through Tonight: There's a chance of an isolated shower or storm through the rest of the afternoon thanks to all this heat. While we've seen some lovely evenings lately, this one might not count. Temperatures still near 90 heading into sunset only slowly fall through the night under mostly clear skies. Lows dip all the way to the balmy mid-and-upper 70s. When's fall getting here?
Tomorrow (Thursday): Thursday could be the hottest day of this hot stretch. It's another one with temperatures rising above 90 before lunch, and this time potentially topping out near the century mark in some places. By late in the day a cold (or cool) front could set off some showers and thunderstorms. Highs reach the mid-90s to around 100, depending on clouds and such.
Canada quake: A fairly significant (for the region) earthquake struck southeast Canada early this afternoon. The quake hit at 1:41 p.m. on the border of Quebec and Ontario provinces. Reports of shaking have come in from multiple areas at some distance from the quake, including here apparently (check the comments in the previous post). Buildings in Toronto have been evacuated as a precaution following the shaking which was reported to last as long as one minute.
