Temperature won't fall below the 70 degree mark for much of the area overnight as a stagnant air mass remains overhead.

Wednesday will be hot, hazy and humid with another chance for showers and afternoon thunderstorms. With highs in the middle to upper 90s, records may be tied or broken at all three major local airports. The record high for Wednesday is 97 degrees and Reagan National and BWI/Marshall and 94 degrees at Dulles. Heat index readings will approach 100 degrees.

Look for a better chance for showers and storms Thursday with slightly cooler temps for the upcoming weekend. Highs will be in middle to upper 80s.
