Temperatures were certainly more indicative of summer than early October, with humidity to boot. The thermometer soared to 90 degrees Friday in Washington, D.C., the first 90 degree occurrence in October there since 2007. The high at BWI narrowly missed 90, reaching 89 degrees which was 3 degrees off the record. The high at the Science Center soared to 91!
It will be another very warm and humid day. While it will not be quite as warm Saturday as Friday, compared to the average high of 70 it can still be classified as “very warm.” Based on satellite and forecast soundings, clouds will blend with sun, enough clouds to certainly justify temperatures not reaching the upper 80s. A front across Pa. and N.J. will stay north of us Saturday and slowly retreat northward during the day Sunday.
We will stay in the very warm and humid air again Sunday.
