Saturday will feel a lot like summer: Hot, humid and then rain

WASHINGTON — Saturday will be hot and humid with storms and showers rolling into the D.C. area later in afternoon.


Quick Links:


Storm Team 4 Meteorologist Somara Theodore said temperatures will be nearing 90 degrees on Saturday with bits of sunshine that will eventually give way to rain.

Rain could pose a bit more of a threat for those who live closer to the Shenandoah Valley.

“Those living south and west along Interstate 81 can expect heavy rainfall with 1 to 3 inches possible,” Theodore said. “This has prompted a Flash Flood Watch for that area beginning at noon and lasting until 8 p.m.”

The D.C. area and areas to the north are in for shower, although a few thunderstorms are possible.

“Right now there doesn’t seem to be a severe threat, however heavy, blinding downpours will be the primary concern,” Theodore said. “This could mean localized flooding.”

The threat of rain will linger throughout the D.C. area for much of the weekend, but the good news is the weather will be a bit cooler. Temperatures are supposed to top out in the mid 80s for the most part.

Theodore said that Monday looks like the best day of the holiday weekend with temperatures in the low 80s and some sun, although there is still the chance for rain.

If you’re planning on traveling out of the D.C. area to the Gulf Coast, a storm could wind up causing some travel problems.

The National Hurricane Center said tropical storm conditions might wind up reaching parts of the Gulf Coast as soon as midday Sunday. This is due to Subtropical Storm Alberto, which could strengthen over the course of the weekend.

Alberto is the first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, which doesn’t officially start until June 1.

You can track the storm on the National Hurricane Center’s website.

Storm Team 4 Meteorologist Chuck Bell said depending on what track the storm takes, it could have an impact on the weather in the D.C. area by the second half of next week in the form of soaking rains and potential flooding.

Rain is in the forecast for most of the beaches close to the D.C. area as well.

‘Honor beyond measure’: Va. band to perform in 75th D-Day anniversary

WASHINGTON — The town of Herndon, Virginia, has a unique connection to the D-Day Allied invasion of Western Europe that helped to end Word War II. The USS Herndon was ahead of the first wave of assaults on Omaha Beach on June 6,1944.

Nicknamed the “Lucky” Herndon, the Gleaves Class destroyer bombed enemy targets onshore and escaped the D-Day advance unscathed, while other ships were hit with enemy artillery, mines and bombs.

Both the Navy destroyer and the Virginia town were named after William Lewis Herndon, a Naval commander who went down with his ship: The SS Central America sank in 1857 with about $2 million in gold on board from the California gold rush.

Now, Herndon High School’s marching band has been invited to participate in the 75th commemoration of D-Day in Normandy, France, next year.

In anticipation of the June 2019 performance in France, band mom Margaret Jamborsky brought the band’s banner to Utah Beach, the site of the U.S. Navy Memorial, dedicated to the more than 1,000 sailors who died there.\n

“The USS Herndon would have been right in the center of the picture on D-Day,” Jamborsky said. “It was quite moving to see such a beautiful, serene place, a far cry from what it would have looked like that day in 1944.” (Courtesy Margaret Jamborsky)\n”,”ampmedia”:”\n\n\t\t”,”alt”:””},{“type”:”photo”,”media”:”

“Being selected to represent the United States is an honor beyond measure — one that our students, school and community will treasure for years to come,” Herndon High School band director Kathleen Jacoby said.

The band’s previous high-profile appearances include the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in D.C., the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in Hawaii, and Electrical Parade at Disney World in Orlando.

Work is underway now to raise money for the next big trip — to France.

“This trip is going to cost roughly $600,000,” said former band member Jacob Reeves, who graduated in 2016.

Currently majoring in music education at James Madison University, Reeves is organizing a Night of POPs Normandy Benefit Concert, scheduled for Sunday, June 3 at the high school.

“I’ve got about 60 current and alum Herndon High School musicians from all different wings of the music department — from the orchestra, from the choir, from the guitar program and from the band program — all coming together, putting on a huge concert trying to raise money for the trip,” Reeves said.

The band’s invitation to perform in France has been a learning opportunity for many people in the town who were unaware of the town’s historic link to D-Day, Reeves said. Some have come forward with stories and memorabilia from family members who served on the USS Herndon.

“One of the coolest things that we came across was someone had the American flag that flew on the USS Herndon on that day, on D-Day,” Reeves said.

Jacoby said students and staff have been learning about the specific men and, in many cases, direct relatives, who were a part of Operation Overlord.

When the band participates in D-Day’s 75th anniversary parade, Reeves said each student will carry the photo of a sailor whose life they’ve researched.

“And, they’ll be honoring them when they march in the parade,” Reeves said. “This generation of people who fought in the world war is not forgotten. Even today’s students remember them and we pay our honor and homage to them.”

Memorial Day weekend forecast: Humidity with chances for rain

WASHINGTON — Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer and heat and humidity are on the way.


Quick Links:


“Friday will be the last of the low-humidity days for awhile,” said Storm Team4 meteorologist Chuck Bell. “Southwest winds will bring much higher humidity into the region tonight and rain chances return Saturday.”

Friday will be mostly sunny with highs reaching the mid to upper 80s.

While rain is in the forecast for the rest of the weekend, the good news is the weather won’t be anywhere near as wet as last weekend.

Saturday will start out sunny and humid, but the afternoon heat will give way to clouds and chances for rain climbing up to 60 percent by 6 p.m.

“Scattered thunderstorms are likely to bubble up after 3 to 4 p.m.,” Bell said. “Though severe storms are not expected it will be important to have safe shelter nearby for any of your late-day plans outside.”

Sunday might not be much better, but Bell said it won’t be a total washout.

“Sunday has the highest rain chance of the holiday weekend,” he said. “Rain chances peak from 2 to 7 p.m. Sunday at 70 percent with high temperatures in the mid 80s.”

Bell said a weak weather front will stall out close to the D.C. area by Monday, which will help keep temperatures and rain chances down a bit.

Highs on Monday are expected to be in the low 80s and there will be a 30 percent chance of a rain shower or two.

The weather might be a bit riskier for people with plans to travel to the Gulf Coast for the weekend.

Even though hurricane season doesn’t officially start until June 1, the National Hurricane Center is watching a tropical wave near Cancun, Mexico, that could wind up becoming Tropical Storm “Alberto” over the weekend.

The storm is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday and by Sunday it could be upgraded to a Tropical Storm. On Monday, the storm could make landfall somewhere between New Orleans and Pensacola, Florida.

You can track the storm on the National Hurricane Center’s website.

Depending on what track the storm takes, it could have an impact on the weather in the D.C. area by the second half of next week in the form of soaking rains and potential flooding, Bell said.

Where to pick your own summer fruits, veggies in the DC area

WASHINGTON — Nothing kicks off summer quite like a basket full of freshly picked berries. (Can’t you just smell the pies and crumbles baking in the oven?) And in the D.C. area, there are plenty of pick-your-own farms and orchards to satisfy that seasonal experience.

D.C.-based travel and parenting writer Guiomar Ochoa shares some of her favorites:

Butler\u2019s Orchard\n

Conveniently located off Interstate 270 in Germantown, Maryland, is Butler\u2019s Orchard, a popular destination in the fall for apples, pumpkins and Christmas trees. But mid-May through June, it\u2019s all about the strawberries.\n

D.C.-based travel and parenting writer Guiomar Ochoa said Butler\u2019s is especially great for school field trips, as she discovered on a recent outing with her son\u2019s class. Kids can learn how food is grown (surprise: it doesn\u2019t come from the supermarket), how honey is made and more.\n

In mid-June, black raspberries, tart cherries and sugar-snap peas will be ready to pick. July and August usher in blueberries, blackberries and red raspberries.\n

Where to pick your own summer fruits, veggies in the DC area

WASHINGTON — Nothing kicks off summer quite like a basket full of freshly picked berries. (Can’t you just smell the pies and crumbles baking in the oven?) And in the D.C. area, there are plenty of pick-your-own farms and orchards to satisfy that seasonal experience.

D.C.-based travel and parenting writer Guiomar Ochoa shares some of her favorites:

New way to experience Md., Del., beaches? Travel the brewery trail

WASHINGTON — It started with Dogfish Head.

The popular craft brewery put Delaware on the map of the beer world when it opened in 1995. Since then, several others have popped up to further bolster the Eastern Shore’s spot in the beer world.

And while there are tons of breweries worth visiting on the way to the beach (I recommend Tall Tales near Salisbury, Maryland, and RaR in Cambridge, Maryland), for the sake of this “coastal beer trail,” you have to be at the beach to make the cut.

This trail starts along Kings Highway in Lewes, Delaware, then takes a turn onto Coastal Highway. After meandering through Rehoboth, it jumps back on Coastal Highway for the breweries in Dewey Beach, followed by those in West Ocean City.

Bluestone Lane, and its ‘Avocado Smash,’ come to Capitol Riverfront

WASHINGTON — Australian-influenced coffee and cafe chain Bluestone Lane will open its third D.C. location at Capitol Riverfront this fall.

The new location will be in developer Skanska’s 99M, a 234,000-square-foot office building at the corner of First and M Streets, SE. It will be part of the building’s 11,000 square feet of ground floor restaurant and retail space.

The New York-based Bluestone Lane has several dozen locations mostly in New York and California. Its other D.C. locations are in Georgetown and the West End.

In addition to its gourmet coffees, Bluestone Lane is popular with fans for its cold-pressed juices, organic teas and healthy breakfast items. Its signature dish, the “Classic Avocado Smash,” is served on multigrain toast with heirloom cherry tomatoes, feta, sunflower sprouts and olive oil.

“We are very excited to become a new local for the Capitol Riverfront community. We’ve had a lot of interest in Bluestone Lane from residents moving into the area, and 99M is the perfect fit for us,” said Nicholas Stone, founder and CEO of Bluestone Lane.

Bluestone Lane joins about 50 cafes and restaurants in the Capitol Riverfront area.

Ocean City among many coastal towns embracing booming art scene

WASHINGTON — There’s no shortage of natural beauty almost anywhere you look when you visit the beach. From sunrise over the ocean to sunset as wild life moves around the coastal bays, the right spot in the right light can offer a breathtaking photograph or inspiration for a painting.

“It’s funny because there’s so much natural beauty in the area and so many artists that want to paint with the sea down here … but there really was nowhere to show their work,” said Rina Thaler, the executive director of the Ocean City Art League.

But that has changed in recent years, as coastal towns start to embrace the arts up and down the beach.

A big investment was made in Ocean City when the town helped build the Art League’s new home base on 94th Street. It opened in 2013.

“The arts are something, and cultural activities are something we’ve worked to expand in Ocean City,” says Mayor Rick Meehan, “It’s an unbelievable artists’ facility.”

There’s something for everyone who carries an interest in art. Besides displays and galleries that allow artists to show off and sell their work, there’s also studio space available for artists from around the Eastern Shore to take advantage of, and classes for aspiring artists of all ages and all abilities.

“During the summer we run a four-week summer program (for kids),” Thaler says. “But we also have a lot of casual classes that are just one day. We supply all the materials, no experience needed, whether it’s in pottery or glass or fiber or painting. So people who are in Ocean City visiting the town, they might not want to go to the beach every day. They can come to the Art Center and get creative and go home with a piece of art.”

And it’s culminating with an increasing number of art shows as well. This year the town is holding its inaugural Art-X at Northside Park.

“We’re calling it Art-X: art explosion, art expression,” says Thaler. Featuring live music, film and other visual arts, it’ll turn the trail around the water at Northside Park into a big, outdoor art gallery Aug. 25-26.

“There will be about 80 artists in tents set up, and we’ll have two main stages that’ll have entertainment going all day long,” adds Thaler. “There will be workshops there, people can come in and get their hands dirty and make some art. Artists from all over the country (are) coming to sell their work. We’re going to have a craft beer garden, wine bar and kids’ activities.”

Bethany Beach holds its annual Seaside Craft Show on June 2, which allows local artists to sell their work. The Rehoboth Art League hosts its annual outdoor show over two the first two weekends in August at Henlopen Acres.
