CommuteCast: Showers and Storms Possible
Mostly sunny, less humid Thursday
6:15 p.m. Update: A line of thunderstorms has developed in central Montgomery County and is moving south and east. This line will likely reach the northern branch of the Beltway -- areas like Bethesda and Chevy Chase -- between 6:30 and 6:45 p.m. -- before moving through the District, Arlington/northern Fairfax County, and northern Prince George's County during the 6:45 to 8 p.m. timeframe. Isolated damaging wind gusts, heavy rain and dangerous lightning are possible with these storms.
Tonight: An approaching cold front will pass through the area tonight. Expect skies to begin clearing after a risk of evening showers and thunderstorms. Lows will fall to the upper 60s in the suburbs and low 70s in the city as a drying northwest wind takes over.
Tomorrow: Thursday will be much more enjoyable as far as humidity levels go. Drier air behind the cold front will provide for a fairly pleasant and seasonably mild July day. Expect highs in the mid and upper 80s under mostly sunny skies. A breeze from the northwest will blow around 5-10 mph.
3:15 p.m.: Clouds and some isolated showers have held tough much of the day, and this has helped keep temperatures slightly in check. Highs are now headed toward the mid 80s as a few breaks in the clouds move through. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop and pass through the area this afternoon and evening. The best chance for severe weather is south of the region, but isolated damaging wind gusts cannot be ruled out with the strongest storms
