7/8 DC/MD/VA Weather outlook

Heat will return starting tomorrow and in earnest on Sunday. Hurricane Dennis comes close to a Category 5. Remnants MAY affect us next week, but not that likely a direct affect like Cindy. Heat ridge now looks like will build, and Dennis Remnants to make us very steamy!

Summary:  Heavy rains did fall and isolated wind damage and flooding reports. A few tornadoes, but By and large I was pretty surprised at how much the area was spared. NC had many reports of tornadoes. Cindy is departing and warmth will build in this weekend. We could stay Hot and relatively dry except the typical afternoon chances of showers and thunderstorms. There is a pretty good chance that humidity levels will rise next week which will increase afternoon and evening thunderstorm threats as Dennis Remnants Drench the Tennessee and Ohio River basins. Being east we should see good southerly tropical moisture and thus better chances of rain.


Tropics: Dennis has just strengthened to 150 mph winds as of 11 am this morning! 5 more miles and hour an he is a rare Category 5. he is Extremely Daneraous now! Please see information on Dennis in the Tropics thread http://www.midatlanticweather.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=504#504 . Would love comments. Track would seem to favor a landfall in the U.S. east of LA and maybe the FL panhandle . See information on the Saffir Simpson Scale here : http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutsshs.shtml

After Dennis teh tropics may calm down for a bit.


COMING SOON! : Awaiting the release of a new plugin that will allow email warnings to be sent by my site! I will let you know!
