PM Update: Shaky sunshine hopefully to stabilize; humidity increases

Today’s beautiful weather was violently overshadowed by the powerful and historic 5.8-magnitude earthquake in central Virginia. We need calm now, and, barring any aftershocks (please, no) we’ll get calm with a very pleasant evening ahead. Wednesday, at least on the weather front, is tranquil, with warm sunshine coupled with increasing humidity.

Temperatures: Latest D.C. area temperature map. See interactve map on our Weather Wall.

Through Tonight: Clear and comfortable. Lows dip from the mid-50s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-60s downtown..

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Winds start coming in from the south, increasing temperatures and humidity levels. It’s still nothing like the extreme mugginess of weeks prior, with highs 85-89.
