DC-area forecast: Heat won’t let up today. Cools down by Friday, then warms up again.

*Heat advisory Today Noon to 8pm*

A somewhat subjective rating of the day’s weather, on a scale of 0 to 10.

1/10: A good wind is the only saving grace of another hellishly hot and humid day.

  • Today: Hot and very humid. An isolated afternoon storm? Highs: Mid to upper 90s.
  • Tonight: Showers and storms in the evening, slightly less humid at night. Lows: Low to mid 70s.
  • Tomorrow: Not too hot and humid. An isolated afternoon storm? Highs: Low to mid 90s.

Friday may struggle to reach 90 and brings a better chance for much-needed rain. So don’t say we never bring you good news, okay? As of today, it’s another brutal heat and humidity, with a few showers and storms possible this evening. Not quite as hot or humid tomorrow, but we’re headed back in the wrong direction this weekend and into next week.

Today (Wednesday): Partly mostly sunny, hot and humid. Afternoon highs should be in the mid to upper 90s with heat index highs of 105 to 110. A difference today is a noticeable wind from the south, increasing to 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon. So it should move the air a bit, although this will only serve to reinforce the moisture from the south. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible in the afternoon. Confidence: Medium High

Tonight: A line of showers and storms is seen crossing the region from west to east as a cold front moves in between 6pm and midnight. However, it is uncertain whether it will be a solid line that submerges the entire region or a line broken by rains and storms. A few storms may have damaging winds. The humidity starts to drop a bit with the wind blowing out of the west and lows in the mid to low 70s. Confidence: Medium
