PM Update: Going from bake to broil
Super scorchers on Tuesday and Wednesday
* Relentless heat roasts Russia | Massive ice chunk breaks off glacier *
* Outside now? Radar, lightning, temps & more: Weather Wall *
* 90+ days so far in 2010: 49; Next up to pass, 1993 & 1881 (51 days) *
It's hot, it's humid. It's summer of 2010 in the D.C. area. That's all you probably need to know, but here are the details: Today's readings in the low-to-mid 90s pushed us that much closer to the 50 days 90+ category, and we'll only have to wait one more to get there. If that's not enough, we'll close in on the century mark again. While it looks like a stretch that we get there tomorrow, if we do, it will be the 5th time in 2010. If not, we should get another try right after.
Through Tonight: We stay plenty warm and humid into the evening as temperatures slowly drop into and through the 80s around sunset. Moisture in the air keeps us from falling too far, so look for lows in the lower 70s for the suburbs to the mid-or-upper 70s downtown.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): Tuesday should rank among the hottest days of the year when all is said and done, though there have been many such days now! Morning temperatures fly through the 80s and past 90 before lunch on their way to highs in the mid-and-upper 90s. Humidity will not be enjoyable, but a west wind should keep it from being as bad as it could be.
Stormy skies: Boston Globe's The Big Picture recently highlighted photos of powerful storms that have impacted different parts of the world over recent months. As is always the case from The Big Picture, many amazing images are available to view. And that they are images of storms makes it even better!
