-Hot & Humid Today -Cooler & Less Humid by mid week

This Afternoon:
Hot & Humid, A Few T-Storms
Highs: Low 90s
Precipitation: 30%
Stray Shower
Lows: Near 70°
Precipitation: 30%
Partly Cloudy, Dropping Humidity
Highs: Mid 80s
Wind: NW 5-10 mph
The heat and humidity will persist for one more day then a series of cold fronts will cool things off and drop the humidity for the rest of the week. Along with the heat and humidity today will be the chance of just a few thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. The first cold front is expected to arrive overnight tonight, so I can't rule out a stray shower especially in the Potomac Highlands of western Maryland and West Virginia. Otherwise, this front will gradually drop the humidity on Tuesday, but be patient because you likely won't notice the changes until the evening hours tomorrow. A brief shower is also possible mainly east of I-95 (closer to the cold front) on Tuesday. By Wednesday we'll be entrenched in more comfortable conditions with low humidity, highs closer to 80° and plenty of sunshine. This trend should continue through the rest of the week and into Saturday as a second cold front reinforces the pleasant conditions. Wednesday through Sundays is looking dry as of now.
