PM update: Heat, humidity and some strong storms remain possible tonight and tomorrow


There is a possibility of storms through late evening tonight and again tomorrow afternoon and evening which could bring damaging wind gusts of around 60mph, flooding and small hail.

Much of the region faces a mild severe weather threat from along and east of Interstate 81 and across to the Delmarva Peninsula. Currently the radar is focusing on storms northeast and well south of the Capital Beltway, but around 8 p.m. we were able to see this change.

Until this evening: Showers and thunderstorms can last until midnight, then it is mostly cloudy. Muggy low temperatures will peak in the upper 60s to low 70s. Patchy fog can also develop until late in the morning. If your area is seeing an inch or two of rain, please remember the adage “turn back, don’t drown” when encountering flooded roads.

see the Current weather conditions at the Washington Post.

Tomorrow (Sunday): There will be similar threats from afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Destructive gusts of wind and selective flooding are also possible. So far, the likelihood of severe storms remains low, but we all need to stay a little bit weather conscious. Patchy morning fog should burn off, only to reveal intermittent sunny skies.

Muggy high temperatures can still hit the upper 80s to around 90s. Mostly cloudy conditions should persist Sunday night after evening showers and storms, with even muggier low temperatures only dropping to the low to mid 70s.

Highest flood risk south of DC

In the summer’s tradition of hit-or-miss thunderstorms, some people have had more rain than others over the past few days. The purple and blue areas pictured below have seen well over 100 percent of average rainfall over the past week, meaning the soils are already saturated.

Areas shaded red and orange (particularly well to the southwest and northwest of the city) were much drier. Any rain would be beneficial and the risk of flooding would be much less in these dry areas.

We will continue to monitor radar until at least 8pm when there is a chance of heavier rain and some severe storms. They could be approaching the Beltway, but it’s not a high confidence forecast. Right now, we’re cautiously optimistic about the Nationals’ early innings. Just remember to take cover if you hear thunder, which means lightning is close enough to strike.
