Morning cloudiness is giving way to increased sunshine this afternoon, which is allowing temperatures to rise into the mid 80s. As high pressure continues to build in after last night's storminess, humidity is also being swept away on a northwest wind. Expect a beautiful evening with comfortable temperatures. Keep in mind that we're nearing the warmest time of the year on average -- enjoy this evening while you can!

Tonight: With humidity temporarily on vacation, we expect temperatures to fall a bit further than recently. Lows should drop to around 60 in the suburbs and into the mid 60s for the District. Mostly clear skies will continue overnight, along with a light wind from the northwest.

Tomorrow: Average to above average temperatures return tomorrow, after a one-day respite. Fortunately, humidity will stay away a little longer, so Tuesday should be rather pleasant. Sunny skies will promote quick temperature rises during the day, and highs should reach the upper 80s just about everywhere.
