PM Update: Showers possible late tonight
Sunnier times ahead after small low pressure passes
Following just a bit of rain and even a rumble or two last night, it's been relatively quiet today. Clouds and cool temperatures have been the rule, though there have been some breaks of sunshine this afternoon, especially south and west of D.C. Temperatures are largely near 60 and into the lower 60s so far, and those should be the highs for the day. We've got about 24 hours more of this type of weather before high pressure returns with more abundant sunshine.
Through Tonight: Another small wave of low pressure passes by tonight, but mainly south of the area. Rain could break out well to the south by late evening and some may make it into the area (mainly D.C. south and east) after midnight and into the early morning. Otherwise it's mostly cloudy as temperatures fall to the lower 40s in the coldest spots to near 50 downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Rain showers, mainly south and east of D.C., could continue into the morning before the weak low pressure exits off to the east. We could even see some substantial breaks in the cloud cover during the afternoon as high pressure begins to move into the area. Highs should reach the low-and-mid 60s.
Tropics: A disturbance in the Western Caribbean, coined Invest 99, continues to look slightly better organized today and the National Hurricane Center gives it a 50 percent chance of becoming a cyclone. Thus far it has been a slow development process, but the region should become more favorable for such over the coming days. If this storm were to form it would be named Richard, and folks from the Yucatan Peninsula to Cuba and perhaps even South Florida should keep an eye on it.
