Seasonably Cool Weather Continues

Matt Ross @ 12:00 AM


Forecast Confidence: HighAs Jason mentioned yesterday, a developing surface low pressure system off the Carolina coast will keep it partly to mostly cloudy today. High temps will be slightly below normal at around 77 degrees. Most of the shower activity will be confined to well south and east of the DC metro area. However, there is a 20% chance of an isolated shower or some drizzle late in the afternoon or evening.

Currently the weekend looks dry with highs from the upper 70s to mid 80s. Scroll down for the detailed forecast for tomorrow through the weekend.

Radio Show and Weather Conference

On Father's day, Sunday June 18th, both myself and Photographer, Ian Livingston, will join's, Randy Legette, on the radio. We will be filling in for Justin Berk and Tony Pann to host their weekly radio show, WeatherTalk, on Baltimore's WCBM-680. Please either tune in or listen on the internet via streaming audio from 3pm to 4pm. I will be sure to mention this site as much as etiquette will allow. Additionally, we will be advertising the 2nd annual Conference on the weekend of July 7-9 near BWI airport. Please consider attending, even if just for the presentations and dinner on Saturday.

Lecture Tonight

This evening at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum as part of the Exploring Space lecture series:

Dr. James Fleming will examine the greatest breakthroughs of the past two centuries and latest technologies in applied weather forecasting and climate change studies, as viewed through the eyes of their discoverers and innovators, and will conclude with a look at a current "killer app," Earth observing satellites, and a glimpse at future possibilities.

Lecture starts at 8pm, and tickets are free, but required.

It Snowed In Alaska ... Big Deal?

It snowed on Sunday in Fairbanks, Alaska. Like some of you are probably thinking, initially I didn't think it was that big of a deal. Sure, it is June, but Alaska is cold I thought. It turns out that this was Fairbank's 1st June snowfall in over 30 years (June 1974), and the 1st time snow has been recorded on June 4th. Fairbanks also saw a record low of 29 degrees. Average highs in Fairbanks are around 70 degrees or only 10-12 degrees cooler than us. A far cry from the heart of winter when our average high is around 40F and Fairbanks is around 0F.
