THE FORECAST

Stream LIVE news here.

Tonight & Tomorrow: For the most part shower and storm activity stayed along the coastline this afternoon. As the sun begins to set all shower activity will end across the Capital Area. Temperatures on the steamier side today in the low-90s. Overnight things will cool down a bit into the 70s but not expecting a cool/dry morning for tomorrow. Humidity made a return back into the forecast and we will be waking up feeling sticky with mostly sunny skies. Cloud cover builds in as temperatures heat into the low-90s tomorrow. Shower and storms are possible but more likely for the southern parts of our viewing area. I would not rule out a quick shower for our northern parts but not expecting a total washout for anyone tomorrow. Into the evening the little shower activity will settle down as the sun begins to set. Overnight temperatures will settle back into the 70s.

Up Next: Monday morning muggies will NOT be making a comeback this week. Fake fall is gone but the humidity will stay away at the start of the week. Waking up with temperatures in the low-70s and sunny skies. Throughout the day there will be some fair weather clouds, but not expecting any rain in the forecast. With the low humidity temperatures will have plenty of opportunity to get on the steamy side, creeping well above average for this time of year. Temperatures will gradually get warmer throughout the week. For the rest of your workweek, expect more heat and less humidity in the forecast. Starting your day temperatures will be in the 70s, gradually rising into the low-90s throughout the day. Rain chances stay on the lower side for most of the week and humidity stays a little lower. Not quite fall yet… but drier conditions are expected for your workweek. Click here to see the 7-day forecast.
