Yesterday's Rain

We did, finally after 29 days, record more than a .01" of rain yesterday. Most areas got about .1", including Reagan National Airport, that received .09". National has now received 0.1" for the month which is less than the record minimum of 0.14" in 1884. What happens with the strong cold frontal passage on Thursday will determine whether this long standing record stays intact.

September Heat

This September may not only be among the driest Septembers, but also among the hottest. We're running about 5 degree above average for the month. The last 18 days have been warmer than average. We may finally experience some below average temperatures by this Friday and Saturday before it warms significantly again early next week.


  • In any other year, the damage from Rita would be dominating the national news. But in the wake of Katrina, the devastation Rita left is not getting the attention. The town of Cameron, Louisiana was essentially destroyed. See these pictures.
  • The National Weather Service is providing a new interface for accessing climate data. Here's the link to stations in our area: DC Area Climate Data
  • The tropical Atlantic has definitely quieted down although a wave in the central Caribbean bears watching over the next several days. Some guidance suggests the wave will grow and move towards the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Typhoon Longwang is set to pound the islands south of Japan. No word on whether the cooler waters ahead of Longwang will cause shrinkage.
