The Pattern Shifts to the 3 H's

Matt Ross @ 11:00 PM

As we near mid July, we cannot avoid the inevitable. Expect a lot of forecasts over the rest of the month to include all three of the dreaded H's.


Forecast Confidence: High Hazy, Hot, and Humid. Today will be partly cloudy and breezy with an afternoon high of 88-91 degrees. Thunderstorms will be isolated, but may pop up in the afternoon, especially well west and northwest of town, where rain chances are about 1 in 3. For the DC metro area, chances decrease to about 20%. Most places will stay dry.


Forecast Confidence: High More of the same. Both temps and humidity will be slightly higher than today. I would not be surprised to see the National Weather Service issue a Heat Advisory or Special Weather Statement for Wednesday.

See Jason's forecast for the rest of the week into the weekend.

This weekend's conference was spectacular for weather lovers. After a 5 hour tour of HPC in Camp Springs, Friday night's exhibits kicked off a packed weekend at the hotel. Among the best were local tv footage from the Blizzard of '96, a handwritten weather journal of over 30 years, and pictures of the frozen ocean in February of 1979. Our own Kevin Ambrose was on hand to display and sell his book and some of his terrific photographs.

Saturday's presentations were enjoyed by's own Jason, Kevin, Steve, Ian, and myself. Among the highlights were an inside look at weather and media by TV meteorologists Tony Pann and Justin Berk, and an in depth look at southern snow storms by Allan Huffman. Mingling between attendees and presenters was commonplace and casual. The presentations were recorded via podcast by Internet Partnership Radio and will be available here in audio and video form by the end of the day. I urge anyone who has more than a passing interest in weather to consider attending the next one, most likely being held in Philly next summer.
