Record high temperatures were broken in Washington and Baltimore and a number of other Mid-Atlantic locations.
Overnight: Warm and muggy
Lows: in the 70s to near 80 downtown | Wind: West 4-8 mph
Tomorrow Morning: Sunny with rapid warming
Temperatures: 70s to 80s...90 by noon | Wind: West 5-10 mph
Tomorrow Afternoon: Hazy, hot, humid. Isolated t-storms
Highs: upper 90s to near 100 degrees | Wind: West 5-10
Record highs of 99 degrees are in the records book for Washington and Baltimore. The added moisture in the air coupled with the extreme heat made for a most uncomfortable day. As we head through the overnight, temperatures will slowly fall but humidity levels will slowly increase. The result will be an ultra warm and muggy evening. Another hot and humid day is on the way tomorrow. There is a chance a few thunderstorms could develop tomorrow afternoon. It would be welcome relief after temperatures approach the century mark. On Friday, a cold front will increase chances for thunderstorms as temperatures head into the lower 90s. Over the weekend, high temperatures will fall back into the 80s. And there will be a continuing chance for occasional thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday.
