PM Update: Hurricane Earl sends in some clouds
Another 90 degree day puts D.C. in #2 all time for 90+
Despite all the excitement about Hurricane Earl, it's a pretty quiet and boring day around here unless you were eagerly awaiting adding another 90+ day to the list. But, this one is somewhat significant in that hitting 59 puts us tied for #2 all time for 90 degree days in a year. Things stay calm into the evening though you may notice increasing high clouds moving into the area from the south and southeast as Earl heads toward its closest approach.
Through Tonight: As Hurricane Earl moves closer to the North Carolina coast, things will be pretty quiet in this neck of the woods. Mostly clear skies early likely become partly to mostly cloudy thanks to high level clouds associated with Earl. Lows reach the upper 60s to lower 70s, and a light wind from the south may shift to the east as Earl begins to pass by offshore.
Tomorrow (Friday): Hurricane Earl will be passing well to our east and northeast during the day tomorrow, and the most noticeable change around here will be a shift in the winds to a northerly direction. Still, highs should reach 90 or above most spots. Happily, cooler air is inbound for the weekend...
