Part 2: Weather (☂)
Get ready for some intense heat and surprise thunderstorms
By Andrew Peng
- Washington, D.C. is the “This Is Fine”meme in the summer, so you need to be prepared.
- Bring sunscreen: Eye-popping sun, heat waves and steaming humidity will leave you feeling drained and icky. Temperatures can range from 70s-high 90s (even triple digits) with mid-to-high humidity — though this summer is predicted to be drier than last year.
- Bring an umbrella: Thunderstorms seem to hit randomly and quickly in the afternoon and evenings. Weather apps aren’t great at predicting them, so always be prepared (keep an extra umbrella in your office if you can).
- Takeaways: I recommend following @capitalweather by the Washington Post on Twitter for weather updates, or accessing data directly at weather.gov.
