It's another hot and humid day across the area. But unlike recent days, showers and thunderstorms have been developing west of the Metro Washington. They are developing in response to an upper level atmospheric disturbance that is crossing the region. And with the unseasonable heat and humidity, some of these thunderstorms have become heavy and even a few have before briefly severe.
Showers and thunderstorms will end tonight but it will remain warm and humid. Tomorrow will be partly to mostly sunny and hot. High temperatures will hit the lower to middle 90s. The best chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be west of the Metropolitan Area.
On Friday, a cold front will approach the area and create another opportunity for showers and thunderstorms. The front should pass south of our region by Friday night reducing and then ending the chance of rain.
Our updated Labor Day Weekend forecast is still looking good. As high pressure builds into the area, we are becoming more confident we will enjoy a partly to mostly sunny holiday weekend. High temperatures will be in the middle 80s on Saturday and Sunday and in the upper 80s on Monday. The beach forecast calls for partly sunny skies and highs a bit cooler...around the 80 degree mark.For the latest weather headlines, stay with ABC 7 News and wjla.com.
