Today's Forecast Updated Tuesday at 12:00 PM

Dew points are back in the 60s and 70s and storm chances will be on the rise this afternoon.

This Afternoon:
Scattered T-Storms

Lows: 66-72

The D.C. area has had a nice two day break from the heat, humidity and storm threat. It appears that's all we'll get with highs in the upper 80s, dew points back in the 70s and a risk for a few severe storms later this afternoon. The best timing should be around 4pm through the evening, though the risk for a few lingering (non-severe) storms will continue into the overnight hours. Wednesday will continue to be warm and humid with highs in the upper 80s.

Thursday will feature a better chance for showers and storms late in the day as a disturbance moves into the area from the west. Temperatures should reach the mid 80s Thursday and slightly cooler temperatures in the lower 80s are expected Friday.

The 4th of July forecast unfortunately continues to include a chance for evening showers and thunderstorms. While Saturday isn't expected to be a washout by any means, scattered storms will be possible through the afternoon and evening. Hopefully we'll have a better handle on possible locations and timing later this week.
