Weekend fun in Washington: Fringe festival, fireworks and more
The Washington, D.C., area has seen a streak of hot, humid temperatures this summer— but it hasn't been all that bad when compared to previous years in the region, said Chris Strong, meteorologist at the National Weather Service.
While there haven't been many comfortable 70-degree days, there have been fewer 90-degree days when compared to last year. There have been 14 90-degree days so far this year, compared to the 21 90-degree days at this point in July 2012, Strong said.
Humidity is factoring in to the perception that this summer is so hot, Strong said. The days feel warmer on average because humidity is making the nights warmer, he added.
The D.C. area has seen a surplus of rain so far this year -— a trend that not all parts of the nation share. The western half experienced a dry summer while the eastern half has seen a soggy one.
