After highs stuck at either 63 or 64 the past four days at Reagan National Airport (DCA), we finally broke through resistance and touched 65 (at least) today (5:40 p.m. update: high was 66). Though the afternoon was mild, another chilly evening is in store. So jackets recommended for the commute home...

Through Tonight: It's looking like a repeat of last night when lows ranged from the upper 20s in the colder suburbs to the mid-30s downtown (actual lows were 36 at DCA and 28 at Dulles and BWI). Clear skies and light winds are the rule.

Tomorrow (Saturday): For the fifth straight day, you could say "tomorrow will be like today" and be just about right. Expect sunny mid-60s for highs, but a few upper 60s can't be ruled out. That will feel great for all of your Saturday activities.

Coastal Flood Advisory: The persistent winds from the northeast - though not particularly strong - have been piling up water along the western shores of the Chesapeake Bay. A Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect through midnight for tides to be about 2 feet above normal.

The air is super dry right now.. BWI has relative humidity in the low teens!

Low humidity is problematic for our household.
Hair flying out in all directions from static, itchy skin and sinus distress. Running the indoor heat doesn't help things either.
If I had a nice greenhouse right now I'd be sleeping in it.

So the dewpoint readings of 15F & 16F at Pepco downtown were NOT erroneous?! Man, even DCA.. has a 26F dewpoint right now. eesh. my lips are getting chapped ;)

Latest on Eastern U.S. Wx Forums...Evidently the website has been completely "taken down", as access is impossible. Access to the new American Wx Forums is okay, though there isn't as much info on the new site at present.

Perhaps CWG could do a story on exactly what's going on [which might require a bit of detective work!]. Currently it would be interesting if DCRTV could look into this though I suspect it may be beyond DCRTV's subject area. There has to be a very interesting story behind this mighty sudden change in accessibility to a useful meteorological blog site. Is it possible that some hacker(s) from Russia [or China? or points unknown???] hacked into the website? And what happened to the "administrator" who "suddenly left town" so to speak??? Somehow I'm suspecting something a bit akin to what Tiger Woods did last year...but with a meteorological slant to it. Or perhaps someone like Ken Cuccinelli got in and seized all the weather data to prove there's no global warming. Anyway, there seems to be a bit of mystery to these sudden weather board capers.

BTW, American Weather Forums is talking up a donation drive as they undoubtedly need more funding in order to absorb and make available the Eastern Wx Portal database.

I'm sort of "in and out" this weekend as to accessibility, but will try to keep up with this weather board situation as it develops. Meanwhile I'd be interested in anything that CWG, the Post or anybody else reveals about the situation. Asd I recall the Eastern U.S. and other weather boards have been "hacked into" in the past.

what happened to Eastern Weather? I just read the message of its closure.. What a loss, especially as winter starts. . Is there a comprable site?

@ realclear

Most of the members seem to be moving to the American Weather Forums site, which is still apparently in the process of being reconfigured so as to accomodate everyone.

The Eastern Wx site has a "closing" message from the recent past administrator "Vortmax" in which he/she cites health reasons [likely stress] as the reason for shutting down the site. I don't know how this will all play out but I have an idea that CWG will address the "Eastern US Wx Portal" issue in one of their postings next week. As I said, this appears to be the sort of issue that DCRTV regularly takes up when it involves one of the broadcast media but since "Eastern US Wx" is not a "brodcast" medium we won't get any of the gossip which DCRTV provides. However several CWG contributers also contributed to "Eastern Wx" so I'm confident the issue will be addressed here, most likely some time next week.

There's nothing really to address. I've been in touch with the owner of Eastern today. It's mostly a bunch of bad blood. I will say I resigned as an admin there several months ago even though I was a co-founder of the site.
