Tomorrow (Monday): Humidity will be more noticeable on Monday. Mostly sunny skies early will give way to afternoon cumulus clouds as the atmosphere becomes a bit unstable. Highs should top out in the low 90s, but it will certainly feel “stickier” than the past few days. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are a good bet tomorrow afternoon, especially north and west of the city. Mostly cloudy and muggy tomorrow night, with lows in the low to mid-70s.
Air quality Issues: With the heat comes the increased chance of poor air quality. Such is the case today around Baltimore, where a Code Orange alert is in effect. Cloud cover and the increased chance of afternoon rain should limit air quality issues in the coming days.
