Good riddance to this swampy day. While clouds and showers held temperatures down in the tolerable 70s, humidity was uncomfortably high. A cold front clears us out later tonight, but not before a little more rain is possible this evening. On Wednesday, beautiful sunshine returns and, thankfully, the high humidity exits.
Through Tonight: Mostly cloudy and humid this evening with a 40-50 percent of showers and thundershowers. A few of the thundershowers may contain heavy downpours, but they’ll be hit or miss. Between 8 p.m. and midnight, activity diminishes, with slow clearing after that time. Lows range from the low 60s in the cooler suburbs to the upper 60s downtown.
Wednesday: We may have a little fog early on, then skies become mostly sunny. Moderate humidity levels linger in the morning before drier air filters in during the afternoon. Highs reach the low 80s, with a pleasant breeze from the northwest at 10-20 mph.
Rainfall totals: Just 0.17” fell today at Reagan National Airport. Amounts were higher at Dulles and BWI where totals reached 0.31” and 0.39”.
