PM Update: Heat makes another D.C. visit

By Ian Livingston

90s return Friday and maybe into the weekend

Yesterday's rain is just a memory as we pick up yet another taste of summer. Today is the start of a several day warm stretch, but it's not so bad right now and even the hottest part won't be too bad compared to what we've already been through. Temperatures headed for the upper 80s most spots today are likely to climb past 90 tomorrow and maybe into the first part of the weekend.

Through Tonight: Mostly clear and uneventful on the weather front. Temperatures near 80 at sunset fall to lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Tomorrow (Friday): Friday is looking pretty hot for this time of year. However, we're pros at this stuff by now. Low 90s for highs should do it most places, but a mid-90 or two won't be impossible to attain. Humidity won't be comfortable though not as high as it could be.

Weatherman gives the finger: BBC weatherman Tomasz Schafernaker is in hot water after cameras caught him making an obscene gesture to his on-air colleague. Though part of jovial commentary between the two, it was not the first time Schafernaker has found himself in trouble on air. Read more (and see the video) at The Telgraph.

I shot a finger whilst on the air,
It was caught on video, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Couldn't follow it in its HD flight.

Who cares what he......or any other weatherman....does with his fingers? It's his forecasts that are important.

Heh. The wx guy should be in hot water -- we TV rats know that if we're wearing a mic, someone is listening and/or watching somewhere!

Also um what is all this stuff with fingers and London? I like a good non sequitur as much as the next person but... haha
