Washington DC Weather: Hottest week continues...

Today:Mostly Sunny, Very Hot & Humid Highs: Mid 90s Heat Index: Near 105º Overnight:Few Clouds, Muggy & Very Warm Lows: 70s Wind: NW 3-5 mph Tomorrow:Hazy, Very Hot & Steamy Highs: Mid to Upper 90s Heat Index: Around 105º

Yesterday was the hottest day thus far this year when the mercury peaked at 96º degrees downtown! Expect more of the same with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s through Friday and feels like readings from near 105º midweek to near 110º Thursday and Friday. We will not really be able to count much on a cooling afternoon shower other than a slight possibility mainly west along the mountains. A cold front arriving Saturday will bring our greatest chance for scattered thundershowers and some could be severe. Temperatures drop to seasonable levels, upper 80s for Sunday. Stay cool and have a great day!
