DCA tends to find the 10 min of wind off Crystal City it needs most days... occasionally not. It is fairly representative of downtown other than immediate proximity to the river.

That river helps our dews. It also helps our lows. I agree with MN Transplant when we can get that river to 90+ consistently DCA night temps are going to often be in high 70s+

yeah for sure. the super high dews are often nearish the water although I think as the bay and ocean warm it expands over more of the region with time. interestingly temperatures are not quite as high as last year, which was a record in the relatively short period of record. https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/07/23/hot-water-potomac-river-set-record-high-temperature-degrees-recent-heat-wave/

it's pretty hard to site perfectly in a city plus I think many/most home systems are at least prone to excess in temps and precip, esp if not heavily maintained. haven't seen any of the major locations get much past 100 locally so much higher is a little questionable maybe, tho possible on small scales for sure. the post station is on top of a building, like many or most wxbugs... not proper either.

yeah building rooftops aren't ideal, but i get a pretty good wind reading.   Briefly got a 102/72 reading, so that was pretty brutal.  Back down to 100 flat now.

the last recorded rainfall we have had up here was the pathetic .07 from that passing tropical storm. I can't even recall when that happened. last week? the week before? honestly it all runs together at this point

Landfalling TS within 200 miles and barely any rain. Classic.

A cat 5 up the bay should do the trick lol

A cutoff low in the right spot sitting for days would be fun as well throwing convective  after convective bands north and west . A cat 5 wouldn't be bad either :whistle:

The warmer the waters get here, mainly Chessy Bay and Mid Atl SSTs, we are going to get stronger shots when they do come up here.

day 5 in a row of 96+ in DC ... legit. too bad we didn't bridge the gap between heat waves could have helped it look less weak.

Not so sure mini-map needs a late night dip in the pool with her parents. but thanks for the suggestion

That’s old fool ignorance, Ms Mappy. How could I forget the most precious creations of our partnerships.?. The moments alone are indeed few but they pale in comparison to the time spent together as a family. As always....
