Muddy ground notwithstanding, the spigot was finally turned off in time for the fireworks! After nearly an inch of rain fell yesterday, often coming down in torrents, the troublesome stationary front and successive low pressure systems responsible for the drenching moved just far enough south to give us some relief. That migration continued in the overnight hours and this morning is noticeably drier and more comfortable. Dense fog has developed however, and an Advisory has been issued for counties southwest and northwest of DC until 10AM. Visibility of less than a quarter of a mile will make for difficult driving through the period. Once the fog dissipates, we can look forward to a partly sunny day with high temperatures in the low 80s and humidity levels just a bit lower than yesterday. Some isolated showers can't be ruled out, but rain is more likely in the overnight hours and then again on Monday as that fickle front moves north again, bringing back more humid air. And then, right on cue, July will shrug off its cool start and turn up the heat: high temperatures near 90 are likely from Tuesday through the end of the week. The period from July 7th through the 22nd is, statistically, the hottest stretch in our year with daytime highs of 89 and nighttime lows of 71. So until then, enjoy the relative cool of this holiday finale!
