7/18 DC/MD/VA Weather outlook


?Triple H? weather continues! Heat and humidity driven storms will be possible again today. There is a better chance tomorrow with a weak frontal boundary. The boundary could knock the dewpoints down a bit making it a bit more bearable humidity wise on Wednesday and Thursday. Hot conditions all week. 90-95 seems typical. There is a serious threat of upper 90s to near 100 temps next Monday timeframe! Emily was likely a Cat 5 Saturday night. The Yucatan is getting her effects today and she will emerge in the Southern Gulf, strengthen a bit, then hit Mexico. Tropics are somewhat calmer after Emily though a wave in the Western Atlantic bears some watching.


Summary:  Hot! Please stay cool. I have to plug the air condition company that helped me on a whim on the July 4th weekend because I have enjoyed the Air Condition so much. The name is Comfort Control Heating and Air Conditioning out of Herndon, VA ! 703-464-7430 comfortcontrolva@aol.com . Seriously, Rick is very helpful. See all the praise in this thread from my homeowner?s association?s web site forum http://www.cascadesva.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=16;t=000197. Enough about the indoor weather. The outdoor weather is incredibly hot! The Softball PONY league championship is this week and they are just roasting out there ( http://www.pony.org/home/default.asp )! Remember, water is the best thing for you!! Soda only dehydrates you more! Speaking of Soda, just heard the news report that 15% of teenager?s daily diet is soda! Had to look up Coca Cola (My favorite coke) history since summer and coke go together for me! Found this fun little site! http://members.lycos.co.uk/thomassheils/secret.htm

OK, seriously, Drier air works in on Wednesday after some storm Tuesday. The air is hot enough for at least a chance of storms daily, though Wednesday and Thursday will have less of a chance than tomorrow. A serious heat wave could hit next Monday! Please stay alert and check on your elderly friends

 

Tropics: Emily has seen her peak. She was beautiful! See her in her prime in this picture: http://www.fototime.com/9843DC5E90F8226/orig.jpg . See the tropical weather center and visit her thread at http://www.midatlanticweather.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=166  Would love your comments. Record year continues as we now have 5 storms the earliest ever for the Atlantic!  Emily?s low pressure of 929 was a record for a July hurricane!

 

After Emily I see another wave, but not sure of its ability to overcome the wind shear that has plagued its development!
