By Ian Livingston

Wednesday warmth as humidity falls

After some morning sunshine, clouds and isolated light rain showers have ruled the day across the region. Clouds have helped keep temperatures down a bit, with highs now reaching the mid 80s in most locations. A few breaks in the clouds are possible along with additional isolated showers, and maybe a rumble of thunder, for the rest of the afternoon into early-evening.

Tonight: The odds of widespread thunderstorm activity during the evening and overnight have decreased, and only scattered rain showers with some embedded thunder is now expected. Lows will drop to the upper 60s in the suburbs and low 70s in the District.

Tomorrow: Wednesday should be mostly sunny and warm to hot across the area. Expect decreasing humidity levels and increasing winds from the northwest -- some gusts may top 20 mph during the afternoon. Highs will reach 90 or just above in most locations.

Due to system maintenance, commenting will not be possible until some time tomorrow. See Matt's full forecast through the weekend.
