ABC7 Meteorologist Doug Hill says it will not rain all day, so Tuesday won't be a complete washout. However,  on and off showers and rain will complement a warm and muggy day around the D.C. area.

Today: Warm and muggy with showers and isolated t-storms

Highs: 76°-81° | Wind: SE 5-10 mph

Overnight: Scattered showers and patchy fog

Lows: 65°-71° | Wind: SE 2-4 mph

Tomorrow: Isolated showers, partly sunny and quite warm

Highs: 81°-85° | Wind: SW 5-10 mph

Low pressure to the west and a warm front to the south is a perfect atmospheric set-up for a warm and muggy day with showers and isolated thunderstorms.

The toughest part of today's forecast is figuring out how warm it will get this afternoon. That is dependent on the movement and position of the warm front. Areas south of the front could climb into the lower 80s while areas north of the front will remain in the 60s. So, I am taking the easy road and forecasting highs in the 70s. Isolated showers and patchy fog are likely tonight.

Tomorrow will be even warmer with highs in the lower to middle 80s. There is only a 30 percent chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms.

Looking ahead to Thursday and Friday, it looks like it will remain quite warm but the air will be noticeably drier. Somewhat cooler weather will start moving in over the weekend.
