PM Update: Cool and Somewhat Cloudy
Increasing odds of showers Wednesday
Cooler and drier air has settled into the area for the time being, and highs in the upper 70s to near 80 today are more comparable to averages for mid-September. Cloudiness that held tough through much of the morning has broken a bit this afternoon. It has been almost two weeks since many have received measurable rain, and for some (if not all) this streak may end tomorrow as the remnants of Tropical Storm Fay enter the picture.
Tonight: Partly cloudy and cool conditions will persist overnight, with more clouds the further south and west of D.C. you go, and less clouds the further north and east. Temperatures should drop into the mid 50s for the suburbs and to the low 60s in the city.
Tomorrow: A front that passed through yesterday will come back north and interact with moisture from the storm formerly known as Fay. This will bring an increased risk (50% chance) of scattered showers or thunderstorms by tomorrow afternoon, though the heaviest and steadiest rain may stay west of the region. With lots of clouds around, temperatures are likely to only rise into the mid 70s for highs.
