WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Plenty of clouds through Wednesday, with a few showers at times


It took a while to warm up today, given morning clouds and rain. Once the sun came out, temperatures quickly popped into the mid-80s for highs. With north and northwest winds behind a weak cold front, humidity is coming down a little. That’ll continue to be the case into tomorrow and perhaps beyond. Even with somewhat lower humidity, some showers and plenty of clouds will be around.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Any patchy fog dissipates pretty fast. It’s mixed clouds and sun, probably leaning cloudier than sunnier. A couple of showers are possible, mainly in the afternoon. It doesn’t look like anything to worry much about. Highs reach the mid-70s to around 80 as a light north wind blows somewhat lower humidity into the area.

Parts of the area to the northwest that were dealing with a developing drought saw the most rain, with a big chunk of 2 to 3 inches across our northern suburbs into northern Maryland. Around Interstate 95, it was closer to 1 inch in most spots. In recently record-dry Damascus, Md., 3.56 inches fell in about 12 hours.
