BALTIMORE (WJZ) — We have kicked the intense heat and humidity to the curb and are enjoying a much more pleasant day.

Highs will be in the low 70s this afternoon, and that’s a nice change after 90s this past weekend that felt more like the triple digits.

Light rain arrives tonight, with showers becoming more likely after midnight.

We deal with another chance for wet weather on Tuesday. 

Skies will be cloudy and that will keep temperatures only in the upper 60s.
