PM Update: More 90s, but cool on the doorstep
Pleasant weather for most of near future
What a difference a few hours makes when it comes to a cold front passage around here. Add in downsloping winds right behind the front and you've got a pretty hot one (despite rapidly falling humidity levels). Temperatures managed to reach the low-to-mid 90s this afternoon including at least 95 at National Airport. But, as noted, dew points have plummeted into the 40s and 30s behind the front, and that helps set up the cool nights and days ahead.
Through Tonight: Unlike many hot days this summer, today's heat will quickly vanish as we head through evening and into the night thanks to low humidity and cool air moving in. Temperatures near 80 around sunset fall to lows in the upper 50s for the suburbs to lower 60s downtown. Winds continue to blow, around 10 mph from the northwest.
Tomorrow (Thursday): This is a winner of a day. Too bad it's a work day, right? We'll see mostly sunny skies and a nice breeze from the northwest as highs reach the rather glorious upper 70s to near 80.
