TONIGHT: Stray Showers, Muggy. Lo 72.
THURSDAY: Scattered Showers, Heaviest Rain South/Southeast of Harrisburg. Hi 80.
FRIDAY: Clearing Skies, Slightly Less Humid. Hi 79.
Wednesday was another unseasonably warm day as we warmed into the mid 80s. We stay warm and muggy this evening with clouds increasing overnight. A few stray showers for southern areas are likely tonight too.
The forecast for Thursday has been a struggle with a sluggish stationary front. This front is currently providing showers across Virginia and southern Maryland. Some model guidance suggests this front drifts northward to bring widespread showers to the area Thursday, while other data suggest a could of light showers with the bulk of the rain staying south. Our team feels there will be at least some showers across the area throughout Thursday, but rainfall amounts are still in question.
Friday and Saturday remains dry and seasonable before another front brings a round of showers on Sunday. Cooler and less humid conditions arrives early next week with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Some seasonably comfortable weather for the last week of summer!
