PM Update: A Few Storms Through Sunset
Warm again Saturday; Severe thunderstorms late?
From the feel of things, summer can't be too far off. Muggy dew points above 60 combined with temperatures rising to near 80 made today feel a bit uncomfortable outside, especially in any breaks of sunshine. After a mostly cloudy day, a few showers and thunderstorms -- some containing locally heavy rain -- may dot the landscape.
Tonight: After a risk of a few showers and thunderstorms till around sunset, the muggies continue overnight, and temperatures respond by not falling very far. Look for lows to settle around 65 in most places. With abundant low-level moisture and light winds, some areas of fog are likely by sunrise.
Tomorrow (Saturday): We'll see a lot of clouds again Saturday before a risk of late-day severe weather. The worst of the storms should be focused north of D.C. closer to a low-pressure center, but the situation is one which could produce isolated tornadoes, so it bears watching. Before rain arrives, probably not until after 2 or 4 p.m, highs should reach around 80 to the lower 80s. Scattered showers and storms continue into the night as a cold front moves in. Some more locally heavy rain is possible.
