  1. Somewhat related, the VT Meteorology Program has been installing a number of high altitude weather stations in the area over the last few years. According to their Facebook page, they installed one on Spruce Knob, WV at 4682’ about a week ago. Should be fun to follow over the next couple of days. https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KWVSENEC2
  2. 2.3” in Shirlington.
  3. Finally have a shaded, north-facing sidewalk caving with probably 30 minutes left in the storm.
  4. If it’s any consolation, tomorrow’s peak sun angle (around 28°) is the equivalent sun angle at 9:30am at the end of February.
  5. Pleasantly surprised to see my temperature at 32 this morning. About 6 degrees colder than forecast.
  6. 25. Safe to say HRRR was way off.
  7. I’m 2 degrees warmer than the NAM. I’m right on with the HRRR.
  8. 38 here inside the beltway. Almost verified the frost advisories.
  9. So DCA just posted the warmest record October min yesterday, right? Looks like 75 according to the climate summary. Surprised it wasn’t mentioned in this morning’s update.
  10. DCA 90° at the 9:00 5-minute observation. Making a run at 100°? Isn't the benchmark 90° by 10:00 for a decent shot at a run?
  11. 90° at the DCA 8:52 ob. It's hot.
  12. Looks like we've got a shot to go below average for the month. Currently at -0.6° through yesterday. Those mid-80s to close the month will make it interesting.
  13. So much for 70 yesterday.
  14. Tomorrow's record high min is the lowest of the month at 66. Could make a run at that even with a rain-cooled evening.
  15. Did I misinterpret? I was thinking there were rounds of showers/storms throughout the night. Woke up to 0.01".
