D.C.-area forecast: Showers and storms still a threat today, less so tomorrow

A somewhat subjective assessment of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

6/10: Early showers give way to brighter skies, though it’s possible that a few storms could linger throughout the afternoon.

  • Today: Showers and thunderstorms are possible in some places. High: Over 80 to nearly 90.
  • Tonight: Part to be mostly clear. Low: Near 70 to 70 low.
  • Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, not wet. High: Low 90s.

Showers and thunderstorms could be threatening today as the humidity remains high. We’ll be dry tonight and overnight with milder conditions and not as wet as expected tomorrow through midweek. That doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t rain, but most days there can only be occasional showers. Much warmth remains throughout the forecast period with highs near or past 90.

Today Sunday): Showers and storms in the early morning should subside over much of the area after 8 a.m. or so. However, scattered showers or storms are still possible through the afternoon. And areas south of the Beltway, especially toward Fredericksburg and Southern Maryland, could experience a cluster of storms from late morning to early afternoon. Cloudy skies in the morning will be bright to slightly sunny this afternoon with highs of over 80 to nearly 90 and high humidity. Confidence: Average

Tonight: Any risk of an isolated storm should be done after 7 p.m. We will become less humid overnight with light winds from the northwest and lows near 70 to as low as 70 degrees. Confident: Tall

Monday tomorrow): It’s a good day to lounge by the pool, unless you have that job. If you spend a lot of time outside, stay hydrated and wear sunscreen! We had a lot of sunshine with highs in the low 90s. Humidity is moderate in mid-July, adding only a degree or two to the heat index. There is only a small chance of showers or storms in the late afternoon. Reliability: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: There is only a small chance of showers or storms late in the evening. On the other hand, part of the sky is mostly clear with lows near 70 to low 70. Reliability: Medium-High

much the same on Tuesday And Wednesday with partly sunny skies, high temperatures of above 80 to below 90 and moderate humidity. The possibility of showers or storms in the afternoon or evening of the day cannot be ruled out. Confidence: Average

For now, a similar pattern looks set to continue through the workweek, presumably with increased humidity.
