Another day flirting with 90, and this time with dew points near and past 70. Welcome to midsummer in the Mid-Atlantic! Okay, okay … we’re a bit early for that. It’s a taste of things to come, perhaps. A storm risk continues into the evening, thanks to this hot and humid air mass. While that front sinks into our area and eventually to the south overnight, we don’t kick this pesky continual chance of rain that’s set up shop of late.

Through Tonight: Storms remain possible through this evening until a front moves through. Any storms could be severe, with some damaging winds the main risk outside lightning and heavy rain potential, although it is also possible we don’t see much develop down here. Still a wait-and-see thing, and Jason and Jeff have more on that. The oscillating front that has been messing with our weather in recent days eventually does push back south tonight. Behind it, temperatures reach the mid- and upper 60s by sunrise or so.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): We’re back into a marine air mass behind the front. It doesn’t go too far to our south, so we’re probably still in the near-70 to mid-70s range for highs. The front keeps our weather messy, as well, with more rain likely to fall. Some thunder is a good bet, too. Rain could be moderate to heavy at times during the afternoon and into the evening, although it shouldn’t rain nonstop.
Pollen update: Today’s pollen update was partially washed out by rain. Tree pollen remains dominant, but it has backed off recently as we move farther from peak.
