Showers have ended and conditions will improve over the next 24 hours. What about the rest of the week?
An area of low pressure is tracking off the east coast and the rain is moving with it. Skies will gradually clear, but muggy conditions will persist tonight. Drier air will filter in very early tomorrow morning.
High pressure will begin building into the region tomorrow. Lots of sunshine with lower humidity levels will prevail through Friday. This weekend, as the high pressure center moves off shore, the heat and humidity of summer will quickly build. We are forecasting hot and humid weather with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s. There will be chance of scattered afternoon thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. The best chances for those storms to develop will be west of the metro area. But the storms chances are possible everywhere.

Daily Eye Wonder Weather photos and images
Incredible view of a thunderstorm from space. The big white circular disk that you're looking at is a large anvil cloud. Anvils occur in mature thunderstorms very high in the atmosphere. Rising air in thunderstorms expands and spreads out, but only rise to the stratosphere (where air starts to warm).
