PM Update: Humidity increasing tonight, with showers and storms possible late tomorrow
The Northeast was hammered with severe storms and tornadoes this past summer even moreso than the Plains and South. @Jacob_Feuer looks back at the historically stormy summer:
Is Sam a threat to Bermuda? Perhaps - but it is a small hurricane and Bermuda is a small target. Latest model simulations mostly keep it to the east but forecast tracks err about 200 miles 5 days out on average... so need to keep monitoring. (4/4)
Also, worth pointing out this tweet from @splillo which shows Sam intensified at the highest rate so far east this late in Atlantic hurricane season on record:… (3/4)
Sam rapidly intensified like so many hurricanes over the last 2 seasons. Charts from @SteveBowenWx show how Sam fits into a trend toward more Atlantic storms exploding in strength, and this is tied to climate change. (2/4)…
The latest on #HurricaneSam: * Yesterday it peaked at 155 mph, strongest Atlantic hurricane of 2021 * It has since weakened, peak winds now 125 mph but could re-strengthen some * Bermuda needs to watch this weekend, although it may miss to the east (1/2)
Late September brings the best chance of the best weather in DC. And this year is indeed delivering.…
D.C.-area forecast: A magnificent week of weather with just a couple of blemishes

D.C.-area forecast: A splendidly sunny Sunday and Monday with a gradual warming trend
Sunday Digit: 9/10 - Absolutely splendid day. One point off for gusts near 25 mph, which might be a bit breezy for some. Others may still score it a perfect 10. -Camden, CWG
Hurricane #Sam is a beast, now a Category 4 with 140 mph winds and it could get stronger by Sunday. While subject to change, forecast tracks still keep Sam away from any land area at least through the middle of next week. Details:
PM Update: Refreshing weather for tomorrow
Today’s sunset is barely pink. As though yesterday’s had used up all of the colors. #Capitol @capitalweather

“Firefighters are still fighting the fire at 10:00 or 11:00 at night when historically they thought they could stop at 8:00,” said Brian Potter, a research meteorologist with the U.S. Forest Service. “What that means is the fire managers don’t get a break.”
Fires in the western U.S. are intensifying earlier in the morning and burning longer into the night, including this year's Caldor, Windy, and Dixie fires. Now, a new study shows nighttime air in the region has gotten drier and warmer over recent decades.
D.C.-area forecast: Pleasant weather is the rule through early week
PM Update: Another seasonably cool one tonight, then a delightful weekend is on tap
A massive eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma has spurred evacuations, injected gases and ash high into the sky and brought about an explosive social media firestorm. Check out some remarkable images from La Palma:
One more visual worth sharing--- look at how many reports of storm damage (mainly from downed trees/wries) in DC-Balt region... more than any other in Lower 48 in 2021. Note no. of damage reports also connected to population density in our region and number of vulnerable trees.
This map shows the difference from average in the number of severe t'storm warnings over Lower 48. Look at the excess in the DC-Baltimore area but storm warnings WAY down in Central U.S. and South.
We're No. 1!!! Of all the regions in the U.S., the DC-Baltimore area has seen the most severe thunderstorm warnings in 2021, topping places like Oklahoma City, Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas. We discuss what the heck is happening here:
Sam could rapidly intensify into a Cat 4 by Sunday, joining the ranks of Grace, Ida and Larry, which all became Category 3 or greater this year. Sam will likely avoid land areas, but northern Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico should watch Sam’s track.
UPDATE: As #wildfires continued to burn across California yesterday, @NOAA's #GOES17🛰️ tracked the thick#smokee that drifted hundreds of miles away. Seen here are the#FrenchFiree,#KNPComplexFiree, and the#WindyFiree—which has burned more than 49,000 acres.#CAwxx1

D.C.-area forecast: It’s classic fall today, with more to come in the days ahead
#Sam has rapidly intensified & now has max winds of 70 mph. Forecast to become major #hurricane by 9/25. This season has already had 3 majors: Grace, Ida, Larry. 7 years in satellite era (1966 onwards) have had 4+ Atlantic majors by 9/25: 1969, 1996, 1999, 2004, 2005, 2010, 2017

Friday's digit: 10/10 - Not. A. Complaint. Not a single one. An incredible, “perfect” weather day is upon us. Read more about it while outside IN IT (with midday sunscreen, please)! -Camden, CWG
The equinox is not just about DC sunrises on the Mall. Here is today's sunset from the Benning neighborhood. Would've been better yesterday or Tuesday, but you can't control the weather. #dc #HappyFall @capitalweather @PoPville @KathrynProciv @ExposedDC

PM Update: Seasonably cool tonight ahead of a beautiful Friday
Here's the forecast for the next 10 days in DC. Pretty stellar. (2/2)
The calendar has flipped to fall and the weather has fallen right in line. So, per tradition, we're declaring summer OVER: Time for pumpkins, sweaters, jeans and apple-picking... (1/2)
New York City which has seen 14 inches more rain than normal since July 1, is under a flash flood watch tonight for another possible round of excessive rainfall:
#Sam is projected to become a major (Cat 3+) hurricane in a few days and *probably* will stay north of the Caribbean over the open Atlantic but some uncertainty in the long-term track and cannot rule out impacts on land areas next week. (2/2)
JUST IN: We now have Tropical Storm #Sam - the 18th named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season; this is the 2nd earliest 18th named storm on record... Just 3 more names on the storm list before a supplemental list of names is required. (1/2)
With the rain outta here (except right along the Bay), here's how much fell...widespread 1-3" over the last 24 hours with some 4"+ totals in Frederick County. 1.64" at Reagan National. Updated forecast:
@capitalweather @Conthescene @wxchanneldesk @WeatherNation “Here comes the sun” 🌞 - Skies are now clearing across the western suburbs as the#DMVV finally feels like#Falll 🍂3f7
