Severe Risk is still around for today. The risk for showers and storms has come up to 70% due to the ongoing showers and storms to the west! We will have to see if that helps us.. I still have concerns for our backyards, but radar is at least giving me some hope.
It is still dreadfully hot with temps in the 90s and heat index temperatures up into the lower 100s again!
Drought update.. Things remain very bad! We are in a Severe Drought in western Loudoun and a drought area-wide. We will have a lot of opportunities for rain over the next week, and some models are showing between 1 and 3 inches possible. Let's hope that comes true. The regions in the drought have expanded. This really will mute the fall foliage this year, making me sad after last year's spectacular appearance!
More severe POSSIBLE tomorrow, and it is still rather hot with a high near 90!
Rain chances have really increased over the weekend! 70% Saturday and 80% Sunday! Temps will be in the 80s on Saturday and around 80 on Sunday!
Rain chances will continue now into next week, and temps will be in the upper 70s to low 80s!
More later as I watch radar and stay in touch with the Storm Prediction Center and the National Weather Service.
Stay weather-aware this afternoon.
