The humidity hose is shut down for a few days. Well, not completely shut down, but certainly turned down. Any day with a dew point less than 70 degrees counts as a win in my book.
Through tonight: Some broken clouds through the early evening, then mostly clear overnight. The humidity and temperatures back off a bit tonight, with lows in the upper 60s outside of the city and in the lower 70s inside the Beltway. Dew points level off in the mid-60s with a light north wind at 5 mph.

Tomorrow (Sunday): A nice day overall, with continued relief from the oppressive heat and humidity. Mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 80s and dew points in the mid- to upper 60s. A slight (10 percent) chance of a spot shower or two in the afternoon, mainly west of the city. Winds gradually shift to the south during the afternoon at 5 mph. Partly cloudy tomorrow night with increased humidity and temperatures in the low 70s.
Friday storm wrap-up: A potent line of storms rolled through the District right before 5 p.m. yesterday afternoon, pretty standard for a mid-July late afternoon in the Mid-Atlantic. In the wake of the storms, there were lots of downed trees from strong winds as well as a few heavy rain totals.
