D.C. Forecast: Warm Saturday, hottest days of season coming soon

      This Afternoon:Partly Cloudy, Showers Possible Highs: 80-85 Rain: 40% Chance Tonight:Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers, Fog Lows: 67-75 Wind: S 5-10 mph Sunday:Partly Sunny, Warm & Humid Highs: 86-90 Wind: S 5-10 mph

      The fog has burned off as skies have turned partly cloudy, particularly east of the Blue Ridge.{} All the flood warnings{}have expired{}as the {}Washington area, particularly Northern Virginia, recovers from some record rainfall.{} Dulles Airport tallied{}nearly 5 inches of rain between Thursday and Friday, while Annapolis and areas on the eastern shore received between 3 and 5 inches.{} If the season seems especially wet, the statistics bear out that hunch: at all three area airports, the year to date rainfall {}totals{}are nearly 10 inches higher than last year.

      Friday was not only one of the wettest days, it was also one of{}the coolest.{} The high temperature at Reagan National was only 76, a full 13 degrees below the seasonal norm.{} Today is already a bit warmer, but still below average: look for highs in the low to mid 80s under{}partly cloudy skies.{} Some showers and even a thunderstorm are possible as the unusual westward progression of rain continues.{} Most of the activity however, should be confined to the southeast.{} Scattered showers are possible again in the overnight hours, but Sunday should be a mostly dry day, albeit warmer and more humid.{} Highs on Sunday should be in the upper 80s.

      Thereafter, get ready to find a cool place as high pressure, sunny skies, high humidity, and soaring temperatures arrive in DC.{} The hottest week of the year is likely as daytime highs in the mid 90s with heat indices around 100 are likely into next weekend.{} Enjoy the relative cool of this Saturday!
