EVENING: Mostly cloudy, warm and muggy. Temps in the 80s.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, scattered showers and storms south of the Turnpike. low 70.
THURSDAY: Less humid by the afternoon. High 88.
There is a slow moving, nearly stationary front south of the area this evening. Widespread showers and storm are occurred over Baltimore and D.C. earlier today. Now we are seeing some storms through parts of Franklin and Adams counties. Best chances for any rain will be near or south of the Turnpike.
The front doesn’t make much progress south tonight, so a few additional showers are possible overnight but most of us will be dry Thursday morning. A secondary front pushes through Thursday, ushering in a big air mass change with much drier and less humid air by Thursday night. As the transition occurs, a stray brief shower is possible Thursday afternoon but most places will stay dry.
The weekend is looking stellar with abundant sunshine Friday and Saturday and much more comfortable conditions. Overnight lows will dip into the 50s for some with highs only in the low 80s. More clouds will move in Sunday afternoon though with our next chance for showers coming Sunday night and into next Monday as a trough dips into the northeast. This trough looks to keep the heat at bay for quite a while, so it’s entirely possible we don’t see a 90 degree day for at least the next week to 10 days!
