PM Update: More Scattered Showers & Storms
Mild on Thursday, a few showers possible late
As a spoke of atmospheric energy passes through, scattered showers and thunderstorms have been hitting the area since late in the afternoon. Additional showers and thunderstorms, some with heavy rain, are likely to spread across parts of the area this evening before tapering off late. Widespread severe weather is not likely, but a few storms could be locally strong.
Through Tonight: After the threat of afternoon and evening storms -- a few of which could bring briefly heavy downpours, small hail, and gusty winds -- rain chances should wind down prior to midnight. Temperatures that reached highs in the low-to-mid 80s should settle through the 70s this evening and to the mid-60s for lows.
Tomorrow (Thursday): We're still in the same general pattern tomorrow as the last few days, so we start fairly sunny and see increasing clouds during the day. By afternoon, some isolated showers or thundershowers (probably less than today) could dot the area. Highs will once again head for the low-to-mid 80s -- a bit below average for this time of year.
Storm Photo Exhibit: If you're a fan of weather photography, then it's time to block off your calendar on July 29 at 7 p.m. Jim Reed, storm chaser and photographer, will be at the Corcoran Gallery of Art that evening to share both his stunning images and tales from the front lines of some of nature's biggest storms. To attend, register online or call 202.639.1774 for snail-mail details.
