Warm and humid weekend, thunderstorms possible

It may not have been has hot as Thursday, but the intense heat is still causing problems for people.

With no air conditioning, a DMV in Tyson’s Corner tried to get through the sweltering day using fans. Ultimately the heat became too much and the office had to close.

The heat knocked out some power in the H Street area in NE D.C. and some businesses had only half of their power to use since Thursday night. The lack of power made keeping food properly chilled for some restaurants.

ABC7’s Steve Rudin reports that scattered evening thunderstorms will come to an end overnight as lows drop into the upper 60s to lower 70s.

For the weekend ahead, highs will reach the upper 80s each day under partly cloudy skies.

A cold front will remain stalled across the area, giving a chance for showers and storms each day. Lower humidity and temperatures are expected Monday and Tuesday.
