Discussion

Unsettled weather continues here in the DC region for a couple more days as an upper level low continues to affect us with the threat for more showers and thunderstorms. The next 48-60 hours are quite likely to bring us more decent rainfall amounts of at least another inch or two. September has been a very wet month already with over 8 inches recorded at Reagan National Airport and this, of course, follows an extremely wet month of August. A strong cold front will slide through the region late in the week and this will usher in much cooler air for the weekend with highs likely to hold in the 60’s on both weekend days. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Philippe continues to slowly churn in the Atlantic and, like some of its predecessors, it is likely to turn away from the east coast before ever making landfall.
