PM Update: Near average never felt so good
Lighter heat for mid-week, then sustained 80s?
Wow, who knew near-average temperatures (current average: 89/71 at National Airport) would feel so good? Readings in the upper 80s to near 90 this afternoon are combining with drier air to make it a rather pleasant day out there, especially considering what we just went through. The recent heat wave, which at 12 days 90+ became the longest of the year yesterday, is threatening to end as temperatures remain in the 80s this afternoon at National.
Through Tonight: If you've been stuck indoors during all the hot and muggy evenings of late, you might want to take the opportunity to get outside tonight. Evening temperatures falling through the mid-80s should feel pretty nice. Lows reach the mid-60s (maybe even a low 60s somewhere) in the suburbs to around 70 downtown.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): This is our last day of the climatologically hottest period of the year. I'm already dreaming of September and October... Stepping back into the present: Partly sunny skies on Tuesday help temperatures rise to near 90 across the area. We'll watch an area of moisture to our southwest that may send a shower or two at us late, but indications are that we'll stay mostly dry.

Sunday's storms: Sometimes it's tough being a D.C. area photographer. First, there area a lot of people with cameras and second, many know how to use them well. During most "events" all one has to do is log on to sites like flickr in the moments afterward to see how it played out. Yesterday was no exception. Flickr users Amberture, philliefan99 and BrianMKA were among many who caught the stormy action. If the storms were not enough to photograph, there was storm damage, and a beautiful sunset (image by ketieharbath).
