More clouds than sunshine are expected for the rest of the day. The heavy thunderstorms are expected tomorrow.

Today: Partly to mostly cloudy

Highs: 75°-79° | Wind: SE 5-10

Overnight: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers

Lows: 60°-66° | Wind: S 6-12

Tomorrow: Breezy and mild with showers and heavy t-storms likely

Highs: 75°-80° | Wind: SW 15-25+

As high pressure moves out of the area, a developing storm system and cold front will bring rain and thunderstorms to the region. The rain will be heavy at times and the storms will be strong and may become severe.

Today will be a day of transition with increasing cloudiness and a chance of a few late evening showers.

Tomorrow will be an active weather day. Showers and thunderstorms will become numerous and widespread as the day goes on. While the greatest threat of violent weather will tend to be just north of Washington, our entire area will have the potential of heavy to severe weather.

Clearing skies will follow the systems later Wednesday. Thursday and Friday look just fine.
