    Rained hard - for about two minutes. 0.10”.

    I'm impressed at how well the meso models have handled this so far. The initial batch timing and location is pretty good. The rest of us should be looking out for later this afternoon into the evening.

    It has been to 94 at DCA. Got a 95 at my house. 96/90/95/97/99/95 is a good run.

    Quite simply, there is enough juice in the atmosphere that (as we saw yesterday) we are likely to see some wind reports. Even if this isn't a widespread severe day, I think they go with a box.

    Honestly, anything I would have would be guesses on the CCN question. You want active updrafts and ice to ice collisions. That certainly points to the environment taking precedent. There are studies out there about increase aerosol loading leading to more lightning, but whether that effect is major or minor I think is still uncertain.

    The rechargeable batteries on my anemometer finally gave out last night. So, obviously it is derecho time.

    Mid-Atlantic summer hottest temperature contest

    Looks like we are 100 at BWI, IAD, RIC and 99 at DCA

    That wind.

    It is going to be interesting. IAD only had 1 minute at 100. I’m not 100% certain on this, but I think that they use a five minute average. It is possible that IAD’s high is 99. We’ll see if LWX tweets something or when the climo comes out.

    No. Only a handful around the country.

    IAD to 99 based on the one minute obs. 98.0 here for a high on the year.

    99 on the 5-min obs could mean 98 or 99. In this case the 6-hr high is only 98. We won’t know about 99 until an hourly ob. If one of the 5 minutes hits 100 we are golden, though.

    BWI did it a few minutes later, too.

    Trio of 97s at 1pm. Gonna be close.

    95s across the board at noon.

    DCA 91, IAD 92, home 92 at the moment.

    DCA is tough to do day-over-day comparisons on because the wind direction is so significant. To the minute, it is now behind. My station is running one degree ahead of yesterday. IAD looks about the same.

    NAM3k has us in the mid-60s and raining Tuesday afternoon.

    Heat hype failing

    Not sure why this needed a new thread. Already has been discussed in the obs thread. Plus, with a 100, 98 and 97 on the climo stations it isn't like it was a complete bust.

    BWI 100 IAD 98 DCA 97

    Looks like 97s across the board for highs so far, including my station. See if we can eek out another degree or two. Need a W wind off of Arlington for DCA.
