Once Upon a Mid-[Day] Dreary . . .

Steve Scolnik @ 4:45 PM

A low-pressure area moving through the Great Lakes and its small, but strong, area of upper-level energy is helping to bring spring-like showers to the Washington DC metro area this afternoon. Meanwhile, the warm front ahead of the low has been lagging to the south and east, preventing the balmier temperatures which had been expected from reaching the area. Salisbury on the Eastern Shore was basking in 64-degree warmth while the metro area was in the clammy mid 40s at mid afternoon. A line of moderate to heavy showers on radar extending from northern Pennsylvania across the metro area to south of Richmond has been gradually working its way eastward.

Upside Down Cyclone

The Beeb reports that Clare, the first major tropical cyclone to make landfall in the Southern Hemisphere season, brought winds up to 120 mph to the northwestern coast of Australia late Monday. The storm reached Category 3 intensity before landfall, but was downgraded to 1 yesterday morning. Flood warnings have been issued for coastal rivers in the region. Maps and images are available at the Australia Severe Weather web site.
