PM Update: Pleasantly cool end to work week

By Ian Livingston

Dry start to weekend but shower risk after

Cold air aloft mixed with warming at the ground has produced some cloudiness during the day today and it's been enough to keep temperatures in the mid-70s for highs most spots. These clouds will dissipate as we head toward and into the evening, making way for another mostly clear and cool night. Tomorrow is looking like a mostly great start to the weekend but the risk of needed rain showers arrives overnight into Sunday.

Through Tonight: Skies continue to clear out as the sun goes down and temperatures dip back into the 60s near sunset. If headed out this evening, you may want to ditch the shorts for jeans and bring along a light jacket. It should be mostly clear overnight with temperatures once again falling into the lower 50s in the coolest spots to near 60 in D.C.

Tomorrow (Saturday): This is looking like a nice start to the weekend, but with cold air still likely to be around above the surface there could again be a some daytime clouds from time to time. Besides that it's rather spectacular with temperatures rising to highs in the upper 70s most spots.

This is nice weather to come back to!
But it's been so dry.
I'll bet our friends who took care of the garden during the vacation are mighty tired from all the watering chores.

When's our first shot at a cold snap to kill off these pesky mosquitos? They're really a buzzkill (harhar, punny).

The vendors at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market will lose some business because of any rain on Sunday a.m. but since most of the farmers are in the severe-->extreme drought area, they need the rain the most.

Even with a dip in business, there is apt to be umbrella gridlock at that busy market on Sunday, if, if, if the rains come.

yeah, I am sure watering has been a chore. And that some farmers in Appalachia are really hurting from lack of rain. Isn't it too late for the growing season to recover--even if there were rain? Just posing that. I do love Dupont farmers market tho. Preferably w/o umbrella gridlock haha. Regarding mosquitoes, well, we need several more weeks before a frost is even possible inside the Beltway. September will still be a biting month--ugh!
