Unfortunately, yes.

If you're someone with heart or lung issues, maybe COPD or asthma, you'll really want to take it easy tomorrow. Now, this evening here and overnight and even the first part of tomorrow is going to feel pretty nice. Temperatures now in the lower 80s will continue to drop through the 70s and by morning we'll be looking at a range between about 65 and 72 degrees, 72 in and around DC, 60s for many of the outlying suburbs, but sunshine is on tap for the day tomorrow, 90 to 95 degrees, what we're forecasting through the area. Of course, that's hot, 90 an hour average high temperature for this time of the year and then you add a little bit of humidity on top of that, it's going to feel more uncomfortable, but especially so for Thursday and Friday, we've got some scattered showers and storms that we also are going to be dealing with for the afternoon and evening hours on Thursday both and Friday and that rain for Thursday may even extend to early Friday morning rush, so keep that in mind.
