95° along I-95

A. Camden Walker @ 4:40 AM

UPDATE 1:00pm: Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for area (noted at top)
I haven't a synonym for "muggy" but it aptly describes today's uncomfortable 95 degrees--with a possibility of T-storms. Josh certainly didn't mistitle "A Broken Record of 90s" in yesterday's post, alerting us to this continued, mundane mugginess.


Very Uncomfortable, PM Rain Relief. Low-to-Mid 90s--along with clouds--will be widespread today and team-up with high amounts of water vapor in the air (dewpoints >70°) to create serious discomfort. There's a 45% chance of a storm, especially 2pm onward. I'd consider placing that small travel-sized umbrella into your bag today. By mid-afternoon, expect very breezy conditions and continued increasing cloudcover.Forecast Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight should dip to an even 75 downtown. Lower 70s will "cool" off the lucky suburbs around the Beltway. There's a 25% chance of more thundershower (less intense, shorter duration) activity after dark. Skies will stay mostly cloudy, but the low clouds/fog/haze that hang in Friday morning's air, won't be nearly as pervasive on Saturday morning.


airmass thunderstorms may pop, but only slight chanceONLY 90! How lucky are we to hover just at 90 degrees? But before you get too excited, know that we'll see just as much discomfort & stickiness, along with more in the way of sunshine. Thus, light-colored (infra-red reflective) clothing would be especially advisable. Perhaps 1 in 4 locales will experience an afternoon shower, but no big whoop.


Heat Reprieve Over. 93° or 94° is on the horizon for Sunday, so appreciate our "nice" Saturday weather. Also there's a higher (30%) chance of an afternoon storm today; their intensity feeding off of slightly higher dewpoints than Saturday. It will be moderately sunny, with a slight breeze, until those afternoon cumulus congestus clouds begin to build on the horizon.

Weekend Activities

Legg Mason Tennis Classic
SATURDAY: 16th & Kennedy st, NW

It will be hot in upper Northwest DC, along with the rest of the city, today. But at least the rain threat is minimal through mid-afternoon and sunshine accompanies more tolerable temperatures hovering at 90 degrees. The Fitzgerald Tennis Center is exposed to the sun, so wear that sunscreen!

50s-60s Music Concert
SATURDAY: Brooklyn Park, near Baltimore

Richard Harrington is emceeing classic doo-wop of the '50s and '60s at the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park, just outside Baltimore. The bill features the venerable Chantels, the Mighty Persians, the Shades of Blue and the WLF Orchestra, as well as Kid Kyle & His Kool Kats, a quartet of Bronx vets old enough to be granddads to the group's 11-year-old frontman, Kyle Flandrau. Rain should end by dusk, and allow you to enjoy this event; however, I don't see an exact starttime. Call: 301-350-3040.
