The Washington Post

Today (Wednesday): Back to warmer weather today, with moderate humidity under partly sunny skies. Morning temperatures rise through the 60s and 70s, with a brief midday shower possible. Afternoon highs top out in the mid-80s, with a bit of a breeze from the south-southwest. And some scattered showers and storms are likely by late afternoon into the evening. A few storms could be on the strong side, with gusty winds and hail. Confidence: Medium

Tonight: Scattered showers and a few strong storms remain possible during the evening, with the chance of a lingering shower overnight. The nighttime mugginess is definitely back, as lows only drop to the upper 60s to low 70s with mostly cloudy skies. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Thursday): Still partly sunny and warm, but maybe a touch less humid with light winds from the west. Highs head for the mid- to upper 80s, and we could still see a few pop-up showers and storms. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow night: Can’t rule out an isolated shower or thundershower, but otherwise partly cloudy with lows in the 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

A LOOK AHEAD

Friday should trend less humid under the influence of high pressure, as highs reach the low to mid-80s with partly sunny skies. Should stay dry Friday night, with lows in the 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

This weekend we find high pressure centered to our north battling against low pressure to our southwest. Right now leaning toward a mostly dry Saturday with a few showers or storms possible Sunday, but confidence is still on the lower side. Weekend highs should range fro the upper 70s to mid-80s. Confidence: Low-Medium
