New England Deluge, Mid-Atlantic Delight

While an unusual June nor'easter slams southern New England with heavy rain, chilly temperatures, and strong winds, the DC area enjoys a pleasant evening.

Tonight and Tomorrow

Skies will be partly cloudy tonight with only a slight chance of an isolated shower. Lows will be in the low 60s with comfortable humidity. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny with a 40% chance of showers or thundershowers, mainly to the south of the immediate metro area. Highs will be near 80.

For the outlook through the weekend, scroll on down to Dan's post below.


Hyannis, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, had over 4.5" of rain as of early this afternoon, temperatures in the 50s, and winds gusting as high as 35 mph. Meanwhile, the air flowing outward and descending from this storm has kept the Washington DC metro area sunny and dry. Regional radar showed rain showers extending only as far as extreme northeastern Maryland, and clouds were mainly northeast of Baltimore. As a result, temperature forecasts from yesterday for the area were busted; many locations, including the two major airports, reached 84° by 4pm. BWI, with a heavier cloud cover, was at 82°, having earlier been a degree higher.

Moving ahead

The low pressure area now southeast of New England will drift slowly eastward as it spins down over the next 36 hours. Meanwhile, another area of showers will move southeastward from the Ohio Valley to southeastern Virgina/northeastern North Carolina by tomorrow evening, bringing the possibility of showers, mainly to the south of the Beltway.
