The storms have moved offshore, but unfortunately have left millions without power. Temperatures have dropped into the 70s, but it will be quite muggy overnight and no relief from the sweltering heat is in sight - at least over the weekend. Another hazy, hot, and humid day is in store for both Saturday and Sunday. Storms will once again be possible over the weekend, some of which could become severe. For those of you without power, make sure to follow us on WTOP radio with the latest weather updates.
