PM Update: An unthinkably nice Thursday

Clouds hung around today near and east of I-95 as a cold front only slowly pressed eastward. The front was held up by post tropical storm Beryl which poured rain in southeast Va and the southern Delmarva. Everyone clears out tonight as the front and Beryl race off to the northeast. Dry air and beautiful sunshine settle in for Thursday.

Through Tonight: Where clouds linger (along and east of I-95), clearing commences this evening. Everyone should be cleared out by midnight and it cools off steadily through early morning. Overnight lows range from the low 50s in the cooler suburbs to near 60 downtown.

Thursday: The best day of the week without question. We have that blissful combination of sunshine, low humidity, and high temperatures in the comfortable low 80s. If only Friday could be a repeat. Unfortunately, Thursday looks like the calm before the storm.
