PM Update: Few showers/storms this evening; sunny, less humid Friday

The warm, humid air ahead of a slow-moving cold front has fed scattered showers and storms today. The front pushes the muggy air out overnight. Warm sunshine and drier air move in Friday.

Through Tonight: Widely scattered showers and storms into this evening (20-50 percent chance), with the best odds south of the District (lowest odds north). Activity winds down and/or moves out by around sunset. Mostly cloudy skies gradually become partly cloudy late at night, with overnight lows from the low-to-mid 60s in the cooler suburbs to around 70 downtown. Winds are light.

Tomorrow (Friday): Mostly sunny and quite nice but perhaps a little warm for some. Humidity drops into the low-to-moderate range (dew points in the high 50s) with highs 85-89. Winds are from the northwest at 5-10 mph.
