PM Update: Muggy and Mild With a Shower or Two
More clouds Thursday, some p.m. storms possible
Isolated showers, which have created a few spots of briefly moderate to heavy rain this afternoon, could continue through evening. But many spots will stay dry. A south wind has helped turn up the humidity as dew points reach the mid-and-upper 60s across the area. Highs ranging from the mid-80s to near 90 will only slowly fall back this evening.
Through Tonight: Any showers or thunderstorms should be isolated through evening before a partly to mostly cloudy overnight with just an outside risk a passing shower. Temperatures near 80 around sunset will fall to lows ranging from the upper 60s to low 70s.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Along with high humidity and a lot of clouds, tomorrow presents this week's best chance of rain. Scattered showers and storms could break out by midday and may last into the evening. Still, coverage may not be widespread enough to get everyone wet. Highs should reach the low-or-mid 80s.
Weather Observing Milestone: The National Weather Service (NWS) will host an event commemorating 75 years of weather observation at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory on Monday at 1 p.m. Maryland Senator Benjamin Cardin will present the NWS Honored Institution Award to the director of the laboratory, Dr. Margaret Palmer. Harold Millsaps, a research specialist at the laboratory, will receive a Department of Commerce Certificate of Appreciation for his work in maintaining weather records. Learn more.
