PM Update: Still cool with a few showers, for now

By Ian Livingston

Heating back up for the rest of the week

We've seen another rare (for this year) "cool" and quite cloudy day across the area. Temperatures have only risen to around 80 or into the lower 80s this afternoon as a moist air mass, with some showers, continues to hang out for now. Some breaks in the cloud cover should continue this afternoon and into the overnight, along with a few scattered showers.

Radar & lightning: Latest D.C. area radar shows movement of precipitation and lightning strikes over past two hours. Refresh page to update. Click here or on image to enlarge. Or see radar bigger on our Weather Wall.

Through Tonight: There's still a risk of a few showers into the evening, but most spots should stay dry. However, any rain that falls could be briefly intense. Overnight skies range from mostly-to-partly cloudy as temperatures fall to lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): We should finally kick the cloudiness that's plagued the area over the past few days. And with more sun, we'll see more warmth. Afternoon readings should rise to near 90 or into the lower 90s.

Google Weather? Google has announced that it will serve up advanced weather tracking capabilities through its Google Earth application. Currently, users can access precipitation, radar and satellite data for portions of the globe, but the new product will enable views and options that are currently available on TV and more.

Probably not weather-related, but we are stuck on the bus on Bull Run (66W at PW/Fauquier county line). Car fire ahead is out, put out rather quickly, but all traffic is still blocked. Normal arrival in Front Royal is 5:45, but tonight, ???
