CommuteCast: Heat Settles Back Into Area

By Ian Livingston

Hot and more humid Saturday

We're statistically in the warmest part of the year, so any respites in heat are usually short-lived. Today, the heat returned, but the humidity levels remain bearable (though rising on a south wind). High temperatures are now settling into the upper 80s under mostly sunny skies. No inclement weather will disrupt Friday plans, and temperatures will be pleasant through the evening into the night.

Tonight: Winds with a southerly component will help keep temperatures up a bit compared to last night. Even so, under partly cloudy skies, temperatures should drop to the mid 60s in the suburbs and right around 70 in the city -- rather comfy for July.

Tomorrow: Saturday starts the weekend on a partly cloudy, hot, and increasingly humid note. Highs will climb a bit higher than today in most locations as readings top out near 90 to the west of D.C. and the low 90s for the city and to south or east. There is a risk of a late day shower or thunderstorm, but most of the activity should remain west of the area till evening.
