PM Update: Rain arrives Wednesday afternoon
The beautiful sunshine of the last two days is now fading as high clouds arrive ahead of the next storm system. Thanks to sun earlier in the day, highs still managed to reach near 50 today. Tomorrow turns gray, with rain shower chances increasing in the afternoon.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): There may be enough breaks in the cloud cover to allow for a colorful sunrise, but skies gradually become overcast during the morning. Well to the west and northwest (i.e. western Loudoun and western Frederick counties), a little precipitation could break out (20% chance) in the late morning in the form of rain and sleet. By the time precipitation reaches the closer in suburbs mid-to-late afternoon (60% chance), precipitation is most likely in the form of light rain (the heavier rain is most likely Wednesday night and especially Thursday) with temperatures well into the 40s. East of town, rain may hold off until after dark.
Climate change science hearing: The House Energy and Commerce Committee today held a hearing on the science supporting EPA's greenhouse gas regulations. Scientist/blogger Michael Tobis aggregated some of the most telling quotes from the hearing, and summed it up this way: "Issues duly ducked, many person-hours wasted. No minds changed/ A few good quotes here and there, and a little more scary data to ponder. " Blogs featuring transcripts of expert commentary during the hearings are available at Climate Central (featuring CWG's Andrew Freedman) and Science magazine.
