From StormWatch7's Brian van de GRAAFF:
Partly cloudy and muggy with a few showers late.
Winds: SE 5-10 mph
Partly sunny, warm and muggy with a 40% chance of showers and t-storms
Winds: S 5-10 mph
Mostly sunny and less humid.
Winds: NW 5-10 mph
As high pressure continues to move eastward towards the Atlantic Coast, humidity levels will steadily increase as surface winds turn to the southeast and south. We're already seeing some effect of that wind shift with numerous areas of cloudiness over the DMV . A warm front will approach the region from the south overnight. This will set the stage for a few late night/overnight showers or t-showers. Tomorrow will be very warm and humid with a 40% chance of showers and a few thunderstorms. Timing-wise, the pattern suggests a few showers or storms during the morning and early afternoon. But we think the better chances will be late tomorrow afternoon and evening as a cold front approaches from the west.
The first two days of the big, holiday weekend look fine for outdoor activities but not so much for Monday. We're forecasting mostly sunny and pleasant weather on Saturday with highs in the lower 80s. Our Sunday forecast keeps conditions dry and comfortable but we believe cloudiness will increase over the area during the afternoon and evening. Highs will be around 80 degrees to the lower 80s in spots.
On Monday, the Fourth of July, outdoor conditions will likely change. We're forecasting partly to mostly cloudy skies with a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms developing. We are raising that probability to 60% Monday night and through the day on Tuesday.
