Tuesday brought with it the first 80 degree day for the month of May. Expect more of the same today with slightly warmer conditions as highs reach the mid 80s across the D.C. area under mostly sunny skies. Tonight will be clear and mild with lows mainly in the 60s. Thursday will feature an uptick in the humidity levels as dew points move into the 60s. Skies should be partly cloudy through much of the day with highs again in the mid 80s. A few afternoon storms will be possible, especially closer to the mountains.
Friday looks to be the warmest day of the week (and month!) with highs in the upper 80s. A few spots may even approach the 90 degree mark. Garden-variety afternoon storms will be possible.
The start of the Memorial Day Weekend looks dry with highs in the mid 80s under partly cloudy skies. Clouds will be on the increase Sunday with highs in the lower 80s and a 30% chance for a few showers later in the day. We're watching a disturbance off the southeast coast which should bring the best chance for rain by Memorial Day Monday. Temperatures are forecast to be cooler in the upper 70s.
For the Beaches, again the best day should be Saturday. Clouds, cooler temperatures and shower chances increase Sunday and Monday. Highs will be cooler at the beach in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees with the influence off the water. The nicest day at the beach this weekend should be Saturday.
