"What is so Rare as a Day in June?"

Following this afternoon's instability and last night's thunder-stolen sleep, a picture-perfect June day is shaping up for the Washington DC metro area tomorrow. At post time, however, another storm cell moving southeastward from the upper Potomac Valley appears to be taking a path downstream to the District and vicinity similar to the one earlier this afternoon. Expect northwestern MoCo to be affected in the next hour or so.

Outlook: Tonight and Tomorrow

Some stray showers or thunderstorms are still possible through tonight as a cold front pushes southeastward from the Ohio Valley. Lows will be near 60 in the city to mid 50s in the cooler 'burbs. Tomorrow will be reminiscent of summer in New England with a few scattered clouds, northwesterly breezes, low humidity, and highs in the mid 70s.

For the rest of the weekend, check out Camden's post below.

Tropical Topics

Rev up the reconnaissance planes. The prospect that a low pressure area in the northwestern Caribbean could become the season's first Atlantic tropical depression in the next couple of days was enough to raise energy prices in this morning's commodity market trading.

Climate Corner

The final figures from last weekend showed that the climate change documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" was #9 at the box office nationwide, despite playing in only 77 theaters. It opens in more theaters this weekend.

Parts 2 and 3 of the PBS NewsHour's examination of the economic aspects of global warming Wednesday and Thursday night provided plenty of evidence that the inactivists are not only scientifically and morally bankrupt, but their economics are unsound as well.
