Currently Hurricane Irene has been downgraded to a Tropical Storm and is slowly moving northeast and away, weakening as it approaches New England.

This Afternoon: Turning Mostly Sunny; Still Breezy

Temperatures: Lower 80s | Wind: 20-30 + MPH

Tonight: Clear, Cool and Comfortable

Lows: Near 60 | Wind: NW 6-12 MPH

Tomorrow:  Mostly Sunny, Pleasant

Highs: Near 80 | Wind: NW 4-8 MPH

Irene is now over New England and will continue to move northeast and away from the viewing area allowing for the rain to wrap up with wind gusts settling down this afternoon.  So a breezy and partly cloudy afternoon is in store.

Current active advisories are confined to areas SE of DC in southern Maryland where a FLASH FLOOD WARNING remains in effect until 10:30am.

The good news with the extended forecast is that we will experience drier weather conditions starting later today and lasting into most of the upcoming work week, this will allow for fair and comfortable weather as we clean up and dry out from the effects of Irene.
