PM Update: Gusty winds to subside
Cooler end to week, but also fairly calm
Compared to last night, when winds reportedly gusted as high as 89 mph in D.C., today has been relatively calmer, even with continued strong winds reaching advisory-level criteria. Temperatures reaching near 60 and into the low 60 have been pretty pleasant as well. The down side as I see it? Those leaves still on the trees are taking a beating...
Through Tonight: Winds continue to wind down from earlier levels this evening, and they should be much lighter overnight. Mostly clear skies early become partly cloudy overnight, and lows reach the upper 30s in the suburbs to the low-and-mid 40s downtown.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Winds are much lighter, but sunshine should be less than today as well. Look for partly-to-mostly cloudy skies during the day with maybe an outside risk of a shower particularly over western sections of the area. Highs reach the mid-and-upper 50s as west winds around 5-10 mph add a bit of a breeze.
Today's wind: Winds have been sustained around 15-25 mph much of today with some higher gusts. National Airport recorded a gust to 38 mph late this morning, with gusts continued past 30 mph into the afternoon. This was after a gust to 54 mph there with the storms last night! At Dulles, wind gusts to 32 mph were recorded late morning. And at Baltimore-Washington, gusts also reached the upper 30s (37 mph) late this morning with additional gusts into the lower 30s this afternoon. Hold onto your hat till things die down!
