The First TRUE Heat wave! 90s most the week

It is not a hard forecast. HOT and staying that way the next 5 days. There *COULD* be a break Friday into Saturday, but then it looks to crank up again! Temps will be in the low to upper 90s today, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday area wide. The heat may subside somewhat for areas in PA, MD, and Northern VA, but we are now talking mid 80s for 2 days and then close to 90 again by next Sunday!

Storm chances - isolated today - isolated Wednesday and Thursday - highest chance now looks like next Sunday.

In PA, NJ the temps may be closer to 90 today and Wednesday and Thursday.

Still... I HATE THE HEAT! Stinks! Great pool weather! Horrible electric bill!

All for now!

SIMPLY HOT! But how hot will it get?

So we have great pool weather, but not good for my electric bill which is going UP with the AC running! The temps will be upper 80s to mid 90s today and in the mid and upper 90s next 2 days! We will likely see a few 100 degree marks met too! Just plain hot and it is too early for this!

We have to hold on until Friday when temps will drop! Highs at that time will drop to around 80 north and in the mid 80s south!

There may be a chance of storms Wednesday and Thursday as a front comes through. Next weekend looks delightful.

All for now.

Another sticky day with thunderstorms

More showers and storms are likely today and these will stretch further east than the ones from yesterday. the SPC has highlighted northern VA, MD, East PA, NJ, and NY in a slight risk for severe. Winds and large hail are possible along with an isolated tornado threat.

Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s.

A chance of storms overnight and into the morning for most eastern areas, but pretty much a drying out later tomorrow. Highs on the mid and upper 80s again.

Sunday through Tuesday look like a summertime forecast! Highs in the low and mid 90s. A chance of an afternoon shower or storm, especially in the mountains and right along the coast.

By Wednesday a cold front will approach and supply another chance of storms. Still hot upper 80s to mid 90s.

Thursday temps will lower to the mid and upper 80s again.

All for now!

Thursday, May 26, 2011


A severe threat will continue and shift east overnight for PA, MD, DC, NY, NJ, DE, NC, SC.

Please stay alert. Check on radio batteries and your Noaa Alert radios! Set up cell phones or whatever you can to heed warnings!

Threats will include High Winds, Hail, and Tornadoes. Threat is even higher in PA.

Please take the time to be cautious of the outcome.

All for now!


Need Aeration for a better lawn! Please consider serving central Loudoun to central Fairfax. He is a buddy of mine so I am doing this as a favor!

Heat and stickiness continue with Severe Threat

You would think it was summer! It will be in the upper 80s to around 90 today with a risk of storms, especially in the mountains and spilling eastward late today or tonight. The SPC has outlined areas west of I-95 for possible severe . The biggest threats are hail and high winds, but there is a tornado threat as well. Please stay tuned to news and radio outlets and that may need to continue overnight and into tomorrow as well.

Temps are a bit cooler tomorrow with an increased chance of showers and storms, some of which could also be severe. Temps in the low and mid 80s tomorrow.

Hotter weekend and Memorial day! Highs will be mid and upper 80s Saturday with still a chance of a storm, and then 90 to possibly 95 Monday! Great pool weather! Of course, that much heat could cause a thunderstorm to pop, but chances are fairly low. This forecast holds for Tuesday as well and then Wednesday we have a better chance of showers and storms.

Sticky weather! I hate it! Good pool weather though!

All for now!

Stickiness with thunderstorm chances continuing - some severe

Well, how did you like the weather yesterday? Today will be the same! My meteorology professor liked to mention how accurate Benjamin Franklin was in predicting the weather. His forecast would say, whatever happened yesterday will happen today. Well, in this case, it is likely to be just like yesterday with a few more clouds. Afternoon showers and storms with some becoming severe.

How about making a copy of that for the next 3 days - OK - seems like the redundant forecast will continue! Then maybe a few more degrees cooler Friday and through the weekend!. My kids and I like the warming the pool is getting! Of note, the higher temps and lower chances of rain for Thursday and through the weekend for the southern half of VA and NC.

Temps for Northern VA, MD, DC, and PA - mid and upper 80s through Thursday and then low to mid 80s this weekend.
Temps for the Southern half of VA and NC will be low 90s through Thursday and then around 90 all weekend.

Summery pattern!

Again, heartfelt prayers to Joplin and all those who lost lives, homes, and all they had. Truly sad.

Of note, there is a High risk of severe in OK, and southern NE. It is going to be another rough day for them!

All for now!

A Sticky Summerlike pattern!

Welcome to the sticky hazy, hot, and humid days of .. Spring! Well, it
will feel summer-like with a daily chance of storms and highs pretty
much mid 80s to around 90. The next three days may also feature severe
storms with wind and hail being the biggest threat.

and evening storms daily. Today through, at least, Wednesday, there
is a chance for Severe weather.

Heatfelt prayers to Joplin, MO. Very sad with the huge tornado that
destroyed homes and lives!

All for now.

Flooding again possible north - warm and drier air on the way

The pesky upper level low pressure that has taken days to clear the region will rotate more energy through Northern VA, MD, DC, DE, NJ, and PA today and tomorrow. With so much rain in these storms and a wet ground, flood watches are again posted to the region. Some localized flooding has been occurring so please be careful. Localized severe weather is also possible. This was true out in spots yesterday and even captured in Loudoun County VA where this video was captured Temps in the mid and upper 70s today.

Tomorrow will again feature the chance of rain but the chances will have begun to decrease in Northern VA, DC, and MD. However, in PA, DE, and NJ showers still look likely. Temps again in the mid and upper 70s.

Saturday will be the first dry forecast in a while. Temps will rise to the 80 - 85 degree mark and it will be a bit sticky. Shoot, only a week away from the pool opening in many areas so we need some warmth! Sunday will be about the same but a late day or evening storm cannot be ruled out.

Monday will continue the warmth of the 80s and that looks to last through Wednesday. There will be a threat of a late day or evening shower or storm Monday and Tuesday.

All for now!

Heavy rain possible - summer weather coming

Yesterday and today it is all about Location. If a convergence area
sets up over yours you are likely to get flooding rains. Otherwise,
scattered showers will continue to dump very heavy localized rain.
Remember in floods the motto is "Turn around, don't drown!" Do not
drive through flooded areas. Temps remain in the low 70s north.

Wednesday and Thursday continue with shower and storm threats and
temps in the 70s north. Things look to be drier starting Friday and
into the weekend.

Of note, less concentrated rain and storms southern areas with much
lowe chances and temps bumping to near mid 70s today near 80 tomorrow
and in the lower 80s Thursday and Friday. Rain chances do increase
Thursday in the south.

This weekend will see less clouds and warm to Hot summer like temps
return! Highs in the low and mid 80s Saturday will be mid and upper
80s Sunday and it will rather humid.

Wet and gloomy! Water tables high could mean floods!

We will see more showers and storms today. Some storms could end up severe and the Storm Prediction Center has outlined eastern areas for a slight risk of severe. We will have to watch. with so much rain in these storms, localized flooding is definitely possible! Biggest threat today will be high winds and hail. Temps will top out in the mid and upper 70s.

The system in this region is just not moving. It leaves us unsettled the rest of the week. Showers will be possible through Thursday. Temps appear to be between 65 and 70 in the north and mid 70s southern half of VA, and mid and upper 70s in NC.

More later!

Enjoy the weather - wet weekend into early next week

We will see a continuation of nice weather. Yesterdays Convective
storm complex caused a long path of severe weather and heavy rain. I
saw the possibility, but had one of those days where I had no time to
really update.

Today and tomorrow look nice with highs mid 70s to mid 80s.

Friday increasing clouds and temps about the same. Showers and storms
will start to enter the forecast out west and Southern areas.

Storm and rain threats will be area wide Saturday and Sunday... Even
Monday and Tuesday. By Saturday temps will cool to the lower 70s at
best north and upper 70s South.

The rain over the weekend and into early next week could be heavy at
times and pose a flood threat for some. More to come on this.

All for now.

Awesome stretch of weather. Wet end of week

The weather will truly be beautiful today through Thursday, although
the western areas may see some wet weather late Thursday. Temps will
be in the 70s and it will be just beautiful. There *COULD* be some
perfect weather spoiler showers in the Blue Ridge and West later

Thursday night into Friday a front will approach and try and pass
through the area. It is looking like it may hang up in the area and
that could mean a showery weekend.

All for now.

Sunny weather - Showers for mom! Nice early next week!

Nicest day of the weekend! Highs will be in the 70s and sunshine a plenty. That will be after the thick fog burns off in NC and Southern VA.

Thursday we will need to watch the evolution of a storm system as we could have showers and storms and some strong storms and very heavy rains could be shaping up Thursday into Friday.

All for now!
