DCA has already gotten to 102 twice today… shattering the daily record of 99 set back in 1993. One more degree would make it DCA’s hottest day of 2011, with three 102 highs already on the board.
IAD is up to 101, breaking its daily record of 97 (also set in 1993) and BWI is at 100, beating the old record high of 99 that was set back in 1954.
Further north, severe weather is the main concern of the day. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is up for the eastern two-thirds of PA, most of NJ and southern NY. Wind damage will be the main threat, with an isolated tornado or two also possible.
DC region official highs: DCA 104, IAD 103, BWI 101.
Also, multiple tornado warnings have been issued with two cells… one in NE PA near the PA/NY border and one in SE NY heading towards NYC and Long Island.
