PM Update: Pleasant fall weather lives on

By Ian Livingston

More of the same through the week

Our period of uncomplicated forecasts continued today and looks to do so for at least several more to come. Temperatures have bounced into the low-and-mid 60s this afternoon, which is a bit above average across the area for this time of year. If you're digging the abundant sunshine, you should be loving life through the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Through Tonight: Clear and chilly, but about average for this time of year. Evening readings fall back through the 50s after sunset on their way to lows in the upper 30s in the suburbs to the lower 40s downtown.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Winds have a bit more of a northeast component so slightly cooler air may filter in and we won't have the advantage of downsloping. Still, with wall-to-wall sunshine, temperatures should rise to the upper 50s and near 60 during the afternoon. Winds are generally light, around 5-10 mph from the north, with some higher gusts.

Weather and Climate Dictionary: The World Meteorological Organization recently announced that its authoritative dictionary of weather and climate terminology, METEOTERM, is now available free online. With nearly 42,500 entries, METEOTERM is the world's largest multilingual, searchable, and continually updated database of its kind. The database includes the International Meteorological Vocabulary, the International Glossary of Hydrology, and related scientific terms. While the largest weather and climate dictionary, the WMO acknowledges the database is not necessarily definitive or exhaustive and encourages suggestions for additions or amendments. Hat tip to CWG's Steve Tracton for this blurb.

Hi Ian, on the METEOTERM page, I had enter a username and password? I saw no area to "register" but I could have missed something. Great find.. I am excited to browse!

The link above to take you to "forecast through the weekend" doesn't seem to work for me...is it working for anyone else?I've noticed that on a few occasions the last few days that some of the links aren't working.

@dcbat

Should be fixed now. Our apologies...blog has a lot of moving parts.

Camden, the METEOTERM link should be working now too. If not, click the "searchable" link then the METEOTERM links on that page.
