It's hard to believe it's mid July!{ } This is our climatological hottest time of the year and temperatures remain well below average.{ } I can't say I've heard too many people complaining, though.{ } High pressure overhead is bringing in an easterly wind flow that is bringing in enough added moisture to keep us rather cloudy.{ } The clouds have also kept high temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s.{ } Our average high this time of year is 89°. { } A few showers will remain possible through the night over the Potomac Highlands, but the rest of the area should remain dry.{ } This same weather pattern will be in place tomorrow and will keep skies rather cloudy with an isolated sprinkle possible.{ }

The work week starts off like the weekend weather, but the heat and humidity build by Tuesday, as more sunshine returns.{ } An isolated thunderstorm is possible both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, but more widely scattered storms will roll through Thursday with a cold front.{ } Sunshine and lower humidity returns by Friday.{ } Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
