Pleasant and partly cloudy Hump Day in store for DC

(Photo, ABC7) 

Today will be drier and warmer than yesterday. Yesterday's high of 69 at Reagan National was the coolest August day in 25 years! Dulles' high of 67 was a record low high temperature for the day. Highs today will climb into the upper 70s with a mix of clouds and sun, so you can leave the rain gear at home.

Tomorrow will be even warmer with highs in the low to mid 80s. It will also be humid. A stray shower is possible, but most neighborhoods will stay dry. Friday will be cooler and less humid with highs only in the low 70s. Rain from Harvey arrives late Friday (after 11pm) with rain likely Saturday morning. Scattered showers will be possible throughout the rest of the day with cool highs in the low 70s. The wet weather is out of here by Sunday. Expect morning clouds to give way to sunshine with highs around 80 degrees.

Labor Day Monday will be sunny and seasonably warm with highs in the low to mid 80s. Tuesday, for back to work and school, the weather remains quiet with highs in the mid 80s.

Tropical Storm Harvey made landfall again during the morning and will track up the Mississippi Valley weakening to a tropical depression, as early as tonight.
