We have to hope for rain!
I got up to 97.7 degrees out here southwest of Purcellville today. Temps did hit 99 and may have briefly hit 100 at Dulles Airport! We will have to see as that would be the first 100 in September for that station.
Hurricane Lee has formed in the Atlantic and should become an Extreme Category 4 Hurricane by Saturday. Of note, I am watching a lot of features over the next several days, and we will not have a great read on the future track of Lee until Sunday. I am looking for signs around that time if there are hints at any impacts or possible threats along the east coast. There IS a chance of it getting closer than I first thought based on a few factors, but anything that far off is just speculation. It will be a beast of a storm! I currently feel less than a 10% chance of it hitting the East Coast.
Attached is the updated Slight Risk for Severe Storms at this time.
