The heat is back with a vengeance.  Today will be our 11th day this month above 95º.  Last July was our hottest month in Washington weather records and right now this July is hotter.   Hardly a cloud in the sky today.  look at our new "page o skys" Fear not a break is on the way again but it again will likely be accompanied by the risk of strong to severe thunderstorms late tomorrow and again Thursday.  A dip in the jet stream will bring relief with lower temperature in the 80s and more comfortable humidity for the coming weekend
