Cold front arrives in DC area after heavy rain, muggy conditions

After a rainy and humid afternoon drive and the same conditions overnight, cooler temperatures arrive Tuesday.

Heavy rain ended around 11 p.m., and any scattered showers shuffle out by 4 a.m. followed by a cold front.

“Sunshine, a refreshing breeze, and a gorgeous Tuesday with pleasantly warm highs near 80,” said Storm Team4 meteorologist Steven Prinzivalli.

The next chance for showers will be late Wednesday into Thursday.
