A cloudy, cool, slightly damp early AM then clearing, breezy, chilly and dry fall day update for West Rockville Maryland for Thursday October 26 2017

Thursday was cloudy, cool and a bit damp with sprinkles/drizzle in the early AM, then clearing out, dry and breezy at times the rest of the day, remaining cool and a bit breezy at times. Temperatures warmed just a bit from the low 50s in the early AM to the mid 50s in the mid afternoon, then dropped down into the lower 40s through the evening till midnight obs when the min for the day was reached. Dew points lowered some more today, ranging from the lower 40s down to the mid 30s. Now at 0604 we have clear, dry skies. Temperatures are in the upper-mid 30s with dew points in the mid 30s. The Wednesday minimum temperature from the VP2 (41.8°) was recorded at 2359 while the maximum temperature (56.4°) was recorded at 1525. Dew point temps ranged from 42° down to 35°. Relative
humidity values rose a bit today (82% – 46%). Barometric values rose a bit today from yesterday’s readings, ranging from a low of 29.80″ at 0248 and a high value of 30.04″ at 2304.

Remember now you can get the VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444.

I am also now on weather underground. My ID is KMDROCKV200 and my station is called “Gardens of Traville.” Data is online, normally just about in real-time.

We now have a clear sky at 0604 Friday with temps in the mid-upper 30s. A short 2-day moderating trend, mostly sunny and dry, should commence on Friday with high temps in the mid 60s and lows in the mid 40s. Saturday should be partly sunny with highs around 70° and lows around 50°. Cloudy and much cooler with a 100 POP for rain (1-2 inch QPF as of the current runs) looks to be the forecast for Sunday, with highs in the low 50s and lows in the upper 30s. Monday should remain cool with highs in the mid 50s and lows in the upper 30s, but with mostly sunny skies to allow us to dry out for the trick or treaters on Tuesday. Halloween Tuesday does look to stay cool but dry under partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 50s and lows in the mid or upper 30s.

On Weatherbug at 0604 the radar is showing a few remaining showers over parts of Maine, heading north into parts of Quebec. Another significant area of rain covers most of the northern half of Michigan with snow to the west in parts of NW WI and much of MN at this time.

As of 0604 EDT, the data from the VP2 (coming from the ground radiation shield about 4 feet off the ground just under and out from the balcony) and the Lakewood WXBug station are as follows :
