FORECAST IN DETAIL
Well, well, well. What do we have here? An honest-to-goodness humid day. And tomorrow we'll be even more humid. In almost any other summer, a pair of humid days would barely merit a mention. But this summer, at least until now, the humidity has been largely MIA. Also missing from this summer has been a classic D.C. heat wave. That, it appears, will continue to be the case for the forseeable future. Though we will be generally warm and humid, with a few shower and storm chances, through the weekend.
Today (Wednesday): With dew points well into the 60s, today will be more humid than it's been in a while, though still not the oppressive combo of humidity and high heat we often get this time of year. Highs should make the mid-80s, maybe some upper 80s, with partly sunny skies and a 30% chance you'll see a passing afternoon or evening shower or storm. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Maybe an isolated evening shower or storm. Otherwise partly cloudy and muggy overnight with lows mostly in the low 70s, some upper 60s in the typically cooler suburbs. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend....
Tomorrow (Thursday): Pretty much the same as Wednesday: A mix of clouds and sun, highs in the mid-80s and quite humid, and a little better chance (40-50%) of some scattered showers and storms. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Muggy conditions continue with just an isolated shower or storm and lows within a few degrees of 70. Confidence: Medium
I think we'll fare a little better in the humidity department on Friday -- in the moderate range rather than high -- as partly sunny skies lift highs to the mid-to-upper 80s. And we're back down to around a 30% chance that you'll see an afternoon or evening shower or storm wherever you happen to be. Confidence: Medium
For a change, here comes a hot and humid weekend with temperatures making a bid for highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Rain chances should be minimal on Saturday -- maybe an isolated shower or storm in the afternoon or evening. Depending on the timing of an approachig cold front, late Sunday could see an increased chance of showers and storms. Confidence: Medium
