Forecast in detail

Still, we do see highs within a few degrees of 90 today through midweek with partly to mostly sunny skies. The humidity is up a bit today and down a bit tomorrow, while shower and storm chances are down from what they’ve been lately, but not totally out.

Capital Weather Gang Storm level threat 1 (The Washington POst)

Today (Sunday): Partly sunny skies should get the heat going once again, with morning temperatures steadily rising through the 70s into the 80s and afternoon highs in the upper 80s to near 90. We turn the humidity up a notch from yesterday, with dew points in the upper 60s to near 70 with light winds from the west. Drier air at the middle levels of the atmosphere should limit shower and storm development, but we can’t rule out a few scattered ones after 2 p.m. or so. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: A few scattered showers and storms are possible through about 10 p.m., although many spots may remain dry. Skies slowly clear overnight as we stay warm with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s, but the humidity starts to decrease a bit as light winds come from the northwest. Confidence: Medium-High

Expect afternoon highs in the low 90s with a break from shower and storm chances, as winds come from the north and northwest around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Nothing new as we get into the evening and overnight. We’ll see partly cloudy skies and temperatures staying mild. Overnight lows settle in the upper 60s to low 70s with light winds. Confidence: Medium-High
