PM Update: Expect a few showers tonight before clearing on Thursday

Temperatures were somewhat moderate this afternoon as clouds formed in the afternoon sun. Showers and some rumbling only caused the measurements to deteriorate further. In fact, it felt a bit chilly behind the rain, as readings were in the 60 to 65 degree range in many spots. The main round will move east of Interstate 95, but additional showers or storms are likely in the area into the evening. But just wait until tomorrow; it becomes one to bottle up.

See you tonight: In addition to the earlier activity moving east, a few additional showers and storms are possible until or just after sunset. Skies should quickly become mostly clear overnight. As northwesterly winds begin to bring drier air to the region, lows will fall into the mid and upper 50s in most spots.

Tomorrow (Thursday): It is the first of two almost perfect weather days. There should be only a few clouds here and there as temperatures reach the mid 70s. It will be a bit breezy, but not bad: wind gusts up to about 25 to 30 km/h from the northwest.
