Wednesday: Partly To Mostly Cloudy; 50% Chance T-Showers

A quiet and sun filled day on tap for this Tuesday with lowering humidity especially heading into the afternoon/evening. High temperatures will be a bit cooler as well topping out in the low to mid 90s this afternoon.
Clouds will increase tonight and a few thundershowers will be possible late night. An area of low pressure and its associated frontal boundary will push through the region Wednesday. These two features will produce partly to mostly cloudy skies along with the threat of a shower or storm throughout the day.
A new area of high pressure builds into place for the second half of the week which will feature highs at or a few degrees above average of 88 degrees for this time of the year.
Long range guidance does indicate that we may see a period of “unsettled” weather during part of the weekend and perhaps into next week. With that said a lot can change between now and then but I wanted to give you a heads up for planning purposes.
WEATHER NOTE: We tied the record highs at both Dulles and BWI Marshall yesterday. We set a new record high of 100° at Reagan National.
