We are off to the Nation’s Capital today. How fitting, given how much of the focus is on that particular city right now. Despite what you may have heard, I don’t think I will need to forecast for fire and brimstone.
At 252PM, ET, Washington-Reagan was reporting a temperature of 63 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. A trough off the coast was inducing an offshore response, and thanks to the hills to the west of the Capital, there was enough turbulence in the atmosphere to produce some high clouds around the Potomac.
High pressure will be building into the Eastern US over the next couple of days. Breezes will be significantly reduced, and temperatures will start to warm up. There is a threat that fires in the southern Appalachians start to build back to the north, which may lead to some haze, but for now, the jet is too far north for there to be any threat to the DC area.

It looks beautiful in DC for a another week. There is a system in the Midwest that promises to finally bring a change of pace, however. For the time being, we look good! (The satellite was later than the forecast, but you can still see the departing trough on satellite up by New England)
