PM Update: Quiet and cool Friday night
Mostly clear start to weekend, but more rain coming?
(updated at 6:30 p.m.)
Even though we saw a ton of sun the last few weeks and months and it's nothing unusual, I'm glad it returned in a big way today. After all the rain this week, today is a winner in my book. Highs have reached near 70 and into the low 70s most spots. The main downside is a stiff wind from the northwest that has gusted as high as 30 to 35 mph during the day.
Through Tonight: Winds die off a good bit this evening and should be light as we head into the overnight. Other than that, it's mostly clear and sorta chilly - though only slightly below average for this time of year. Temperatures in the low-and-mid 60s after sunset fall to lows in the mid-40s for the cooler suburbs to near 50 downtown.
Tomorrow (Saturday): This is looking like a spectacular fall day around here. Mostly sunny skies and light winds from the north mingle with highs in the upper 60s to near 70. I'm contemplating a long walk around the city myself...
East Coast rain totals: NOAA's Hydrometeorological Prediction Center has a comprehensive and impressive list of rainfall totals (from the recent storms) from up and down the East Coast. Here is a sampling, approximately south to north: Myrtle Beach, SC 10.33"; Wilmington, NC 16.68"; Norfolk, Va. 11.51"; Solomons, Md. 13.48"; Wilmington, De. 7.95"; Trenton, NJ 3.91"; Allentown, Pa. 8.35"; New York City, 3.8"; Albany, NY 5.68"; Burlington, Vt. 2.99"; Lebanon, NH 4.96"; Westfield, Ma. 4.54"; Caribou, Me. 1.65"
