This weather has been fantastic and I'm hoping that it continues well into Fall. It took summer a while to finally reach us but it is here and we are all happy. There is the possibility of rain in our forecast for tonight but just hit and miss showers. The last two rainy days have left us with very little and we really could use some rain.
Right now (9:30 AM EDT), our temp is 74F, the humidity is 50%, and skies are clear. Winds are from the west northwest at 4 mph. The pressure is 29.93" and steady, and the dew point is 63F. Visibility is 10 miles. Yesterday's high was 83F and the overnight low was 64F.

Thursday was a partly sunny day, very warm and muggy with dew points above the 70 mark all day. A line of showers/storms came through between 1315 and 1350 hours at my station, with a bit of thunder and brief periods of moderate to heavy rain but the heavy periods were quite brief. No more showers/storm action the rest of the day, with temps staying in the upper 80s and dew points remaining high. Temps this evening/early morning Friday have dropped slowly through the 80s and the 70s this evening, but in the early morning hours of Friday temps have dropped more, into the upper 60s with dew point temps now in the mid 60s. By the morning we should be in the low- mid 60s and hopefully dew points in the 50s. I continued to celebrate my birthday on Thursday, meeting my friend Laura for lunch at Famous Dave's in Germantown. The storms/showers were moving in as we parked in front of the…Continue
