CommuteCast: Showers and Some Thunder
Becoming sunny and cool for Wednesday
Humidity levels are up today as a cold front approaches the region. With only a few breaks of sunshine, high temperatures have reached the low 80s this afternoon, and may rise a little more prior to rain entering the picture.
Afternoon and evening: Scattered showers and thundershowers will move through the area. For the most part, storms should not be very intense. But a few strong storms with frequent lightning and gusty winds are possible, especially from the District toward points east. Rainfall totals should be light with most places receiving .25" or less, though a couple isolated downpours capable of producing closer to a half-inch are not out of the question.
Tonight: Shower activity should dissipate by around midnight, with clouds sticking around through the overnight hours. Humidity will fall as a drying wind from the north increases to 10-20 mph with some higher gusts. Temperatures will drop to the low 50s in the suburbs and mid 50s in the city.
Tomorrow: A brief shot of cool air visits the area for Wednesday. Even after skies become mostly sunny during the morning, temperatures will struggle to get past the upper 60s for afternoon highs. A wind from the north at 15-20 mph in the morning should decrease to near 10 mph during the afternoon.
