Scattered showers and storms will continue into the evening and early overnight hours across much of the mid-Atlantic. Some of these storms will be capable of producing periods of heavy rain and gusty winds. High dew point levels will make it stuffy tonight as temperatures fall to the upper 60s to middle 70s.

Hot and humid weather returns Monday with highs around 90 to 95 degrees. Although mostly sunny skies are in the forecast, a pop-up thunderstorm may dot the radar. Slightly less humid conditions are expected Tuesday with highs in the upper 90s to around 100 degrees. Heat indices should be in the 100 to 105 degree range.
