Washington Post ^ | 8/28/13 | Ian Livingston

Today's Daily Digit A somewhat subjective rating of the days weather, on a scale of 1 to 10.

6 Getting to the point where we could use rain, but not the best day for it. Quite humid too. Stay hydrated! Express Forecast Today: Variably cloudy, numerous showers and storms. Highs: Near 80 to near 90.

KEYWORDS: rain
Anyone remember the massive downpour when the Impeached Bent One dedicated his massage parlor in Arkansas? I still recall the hilarious sight of Barbra Streisand having to hold an umbrella as the skies opened up and buckets poured down.....

It was awesome.

Since this anniversary has taken on such a leftist political slant, I hope it rains like Noah's Flood as soon as the Clown takes the stage for his performance.

“I hope it rains like Noah’s Flood as soon as the Clown takes the stage for his performance.”

The imposter will have Marines hold umbrellas over all of the race baters.

According to this article, it appears as though it is a 60% chance, doesn’t it?

There is an abundant need for cloud to ground lightning and a Biblical flood in DC.

D.C. area forecast: Shower and storm threat for March on Washington anniversary

NWS can't get a forecast a couple days in advance correct, how the heck do they expect to predict rain on a certain day in March?

The anniversary of the establishment of Washington, DC is July 16.

The wedding anniversary of George and Martha Washington in January 6.

Neither of those is in March.

If it rains, he’ll be at the speech instead of the golf course.

Waiting for the line from Obama: “If I had a dad, he’d look like MLK.”

You are correct, I googled Washington dc weather and got the following that showed 10%.
https://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=&oq=billings+gazette&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGNI_enUS523US523&q=washington+dc+weather&gs_l=hp..8.41l991.0.0.1.3099685...........0.obcYdiEytjk

When I clicked the detail, after your note, the 10% was not supported. Me Bad.

Gee, wouldn’t it be too bad if there was a LOT of lightening too?

I do remember watching that, and it was hilarious. I especially remember Bush 41 and 43, Carter, and their wives trying to look interested when Bono was performing, while holding umbrellas over their heads.

Here’s the link to NOAA radar for the region. Put that in motion, and it becomes obvious they’re getting rain.

Anyone who thinks the humidity in Houston is bad has never been to D.C. in August.

Some of the most humid days of my life where in Quantico at Camp Upshur. It was brutal. You could literally see the air.
