PM Update: Some sweet weather ahead
Lots of sun and comfortable into the weekend
updated at 4:45 p.m.
A slow moving upper-level low pressure and the associated cold air aloft have promoted another day with a fair amount of clouds across the area. With any sunshine and warming of the surface helping additional clouds form, temperatures have been stuck near 80 or into the lower 80s this afternoon. Overall, not a bad day, especially when you think about all the heat we've been through and the fact that some more is on the horizon.
Through Tonight: Skies are partly cloudy and there could be an isolated shower around early, mainly west and south of the area. Nighttime lows bottom out in the lower 60s in the coolest spots to the upper 60s in the warmest.
Tomorrow (Thursday): A cold front pushes through during the day but should not keep us from seeing a fairly average one on the temperature side for this time of year. Highs likely push into the mid-80s most spots under partly-to-mostly sunny skies. Winds may be occasionally gusty from the northwest during the afternoon.
Today in weather history: As @WestWingReport noted yesterday, lots of news was occurring in Washington back in 1814. On this date in that year, a thunderstorm produced a tornado in Washington and also saved the city from burning due to fires set by the British the day prior. CWG's Kevin Ambrose explored this historical event in depth recently.
