D.C.-area forecast: Hot and humid, with storm chances increasing Wednesday

A few isolated showers and storms are possible after midnight.

Not much around early this evening on 4Live Radar, but once the sun goes down, our rain chances go up. Temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 80s before the front as well, but they only dip down slightly on Wednesday before returning to the mid-80s by Friday. The severe weather threat is there but on the low side. We will see sunshine in the morning with clouds building by midday.

A secondary wave of energy from this front could then work across the area on Saturday to produce a few more scattered showers and storms.

You'll have a brief reprieve from the heat and humidity on today with comfortable highs in the upper-70s. Highs will slip into the mid 80s, closer to normal, this weekend.

Monday afternoon will be partly cloudy, hot and humid.

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms (30%).

We are watching a non-tropical, surface low pressure system centered about 1200 miles southwest of the Azores.

After a stretch where we couldn't buy a drop of rain, we can't rule it out in any of the next seven days. There will be at least a chance of thunderstorms each day.
