PM Update: Severe departs, shower/storm possible
Cool down starts slowly tomorrow... but it will be sweet
Strong to severe thunderstorms that moved through a good portion of the area signal the start of a several day change to kinder summer conditions. Damage reports are not widespread, but the most intense activity targeted the immediate metro area and caused at least several trees to fall in Fairfax County in addition to reports we've received from Twitter. Twitter user @markbober captured a cool image of the clouds as they were moving in. There are also reports of power outages, including around 20k impacted in Montgomery County. Before the rain, D.C. reached 95 or higher (97 officially) for the seventh time in the last 10 days of this heat wave.
Through Tonight: The severe threat is likely over as storms head off to the east, but isolated showers or thundershowers are possible through around midnight. The cold front is still hanging back a to our west, so tonight continues rather muggy and warm. Lows fall to the low-and-mid 70s across the area.
Tomorrow (Tuesday): We start to transition from this hot and disgusting air mass to a much more pleasant one tomorrow, though probably not quick enough to keep mostly sunny skies from helping temperatures rise near and past 90 again. One thing you'll notice is much lower humidity filtering in on fresh northwest winds. Heading into the night, the cooler-than-normal air mass will get better established, and it should be downright spectacular for a while!
