Warm, a little more humid. Under the influence of southeasterly to southerly breezes, temperatures have returned to the 90° range in the Washington metro area with National reaching at least 90° and Dulles 92°. Humidity levels have also been generally higher today, although mid afternoon dewpoint readings were only in the low 60s in most places. On radar, shower activity is widely scattered and generally confined to the mountains of West Virginia.

Palm Beach Post opinion columnist Frank Cerabino offered his take on the Proenza affair at the National Hurricane Center yesterday: "Complaining up a storm at the NOAA". Among his suggestions for improving the work environment:
"8 - 9 a.m. - Bagels, cage-free omelets made to order and fresh brewed Colombian coffee flown in daily on a hurricane hunter plane.
9 - 9:30 a.m. - Sharing time. Staffers swap stories about children, or discuss highlights of TV shows from the previous evening."
