PM Update: 80 degree or higher streak ends
Clouds dwindle Wed., then few-day stretch of awesome
Well, we've finally done it. The extremely long streak of days with a high above 80 that began on June 9 had to come to a close sometime. Plentiful clouds with just a few isolated sunnier breaks have held temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s. Not a lot of rain has fallen today across the area, but an isolated shower remains an outside threat.
Through Tonight: Skies stay cloudy or mostly cloudy through the evening and night. There could be an isolated sprinkle or shower, but don't expect much. Readings fall back slowly through the night, ending up in the lower 60s in the cooler spots to the upper 60s downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): We begin to lose the influence of an upper-level low pressure system that has given us showers and cool temperatures. I'd expect a fair amount of clouds with periods of partly sunny skies during the day, but showers may pop up in the afternoon as well. Temperatures should reach near 80 or into the low 80s.
Storm Center Family Day: This Saturday is "Storm Center Newseum Family Day" at the Newseum here in Washington. Events run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and include a discussion with ABC7's Bob Ryan at 2:30 which will cover Hurricane Katrina and other stories. If attending, don't forget to check out the "Covering Katrina" exhibit to mark 5 years since the storm.
