PM Update: Storms Depart, Quiet Night Ahead
Mostly sunny and rather warm on Saturday
Showers and storms, some severe with damaging winds and perhaps a tornado, have passed through the area and just a few showers are left. The severe thunderstorm watch that was in effect until 9 p.m. has been cancelled. Temperatures that reached the mid-80s to near 90 were sent backwards by rain, but may again rise a bit before evening as some sunshine returns.
Through Tonight: Following a risk of an additional isolated shower through early evening, we will see partly to mostly cloudy skies overnight. Lows should range from the mid-60s to near 70. Patchy fog is possible where it rained, though a northwest wind should keep too much from forming.
Tomorrow (Saturday): There will be plentiful sunshine Saturday along with hot temperatures and continued high humidity levels. Highs rise to around 90 across much of the area. As has been the case almost daily lately, there's a risk -- slight and isolated this time -- of a late-day shower or thundershower.
Storm Reports: Along with a tree down on I-66, wind gusts to hurricane force (74 mph) were reported in Frederick County, Md. and a tornado may have touched down in Carroll County, Md. Hail up to 1" in diameter was also reported in Loudoun County, Va. earlier this afternoon. See NWS storm reports.
