Overnight lows will be in the 70s under partly cloudy skies. Friday will be partly sunny, hot and noticeably more humid. A weak cold front will cross the mid-Atlantic, but won't bring much moisture with it. Look for a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm, but nothing severe. Most outdoor activities should be just fine.
The weekend is shaping up nicely for the area; mostly sunny skies with highs both Saturday and Sunday around 90 degrees. The heat wave will continue on Monday and Tuesday with highs climbing a few degrees into the lower 90s. The StormWatch 7 extended outlook calls for increasing chances for showers and thunderstorms by next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
