PM Update: Isolated Strong Storms Into Evening
Hot and humid conditions Saturday, but mostly dry
For the second day in a row, we have the threat of showers and thunderstorms. Storms could impact places here and there into early evening, but should be fewer in number than yesterday. Outside of any storms, conditions are a little more comfortable today than yesterday, with humidity down a notch and highs having reached the mid-and-upper 80s.
Through Tonight: Isolated showers and thunderstorms, some of which could be strong or severe, should finish up by around 8 or 9 p.m. An additional isolated shower is possible through midnight before clearing skies overnight. Lows in the mid-60s for the suburbs and closer to 70 downtown.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Summer took its time to get going, but tomorrow there will be little question what season we're in. Highs in the low (and maybe middle) 90s, combined with fairly muggy dew points in the mid-60s, will make it one of the steamiest days of the year thus far. With a Bermuda High largely in control, we should stay mostly rain-free even if an isolated afternoon storm is not out of the question.
DCA Rain Watch Update: Rainfall yesterday doused many spots with the biggest single-day total in over a month. After missing out early in the day, National Airport picked up .56" with evening storms, improving its July total to .82". If no more rain falls at National this month, it would go down as tied for the driest July ever in D.C. See previous information on monthly low-rainfall records.
