October Chill Continues

Dan Stillman @ 3:50 PM

Today was our fifth consecutive day of below-average temperatures, and it's likely that trend will continue through the weekend. The forecast details follow ...

Tonight and Tomorrow

Forecast Confidence: High-Very High Becoming less windy. Mostly clear skies and diminishing winds should allow tonight's lows to bottom out in the mid-to-upper 30s in town, low 30s in the burbs. Tomorrow will continue to feature a cool breeze out of the northwest, but it shouldn't top 10 mph. Thus, with partly to mostly sunny skies, it will feel warmer than today, even with a still well-below-normal high near 55. Tomorrow night, increasing clouds and a low in the upper 30s to near 40 in town, mid 30s in the burbs.


Forecast Confidence: MediumIncreasing chance of rain. A partly to mostly cloudy day as a low-pressure system approaching from the west brings a chance of showers by midday and highs in the mid 50s. The chance of rain increases substantially during the afternoon, with moderate rainfall possible during the evening and nighttime hours. Overnight lows in the mid 40s.

The Weekend

Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighGradual clearing, below-normal temps. Clouds and a few showers may linger into early Saturday, followed by partial clearing and breezy conditions with a high in the mid 50s. Saturday night, continued clearing as the clocks get turned back and lows drop to the low 40s in town, mid 30s in the burbs. The outlook for Sunday is mostly sunny with highs in the mid-to-upper 50s.

Return of the Global Warming Protestors

Two members of the U.S. Climate Emergency Council were arrested Monday after climbing a ledge at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration building in Silver Spring and unfurling a banner reading "Bush: Let NOAA Tell the Truth," the Washington Post reported.

It was the second time in five months that members of the newly formed environmental group came to NOAA to protest what they say is an attempt by NOAA and Bush administration officials to cover up the potential dangers of global warming. The previous demonstration spanned a two-day period from May 31 to June 1 and included activists and Hurricane Katrina survivors.
