A frontal boundary lies to the west of the Mid Atlantic this morning allowing for plenty of clouds and a few showers. Sunshine should break through by midday leading to a little added instability and fuel for afternoon and evening storms. We are not anticipating the same intensity as yesterday and the most likely timing will be from 3pm to 8pm. High temperatures will still be hot near 90 degrees with heat index values in the low to mid 90s.
Tonight, mostly cloudy skies and a few lingering showers can be expected with lows in the 70s. The front will overspread the DC area Sunday with added clouds and slightly cooler temperatures in the mid 80s. Showers and a few storms will become likely again during the afternoon and evening.
Looking ahead, Monday looks mainly dry with highs in the lower 80s, a cold front will swing through Tuesday evening bringing the next threat for a few storms. Beyond that, much lower levels of humidity are anticipated later next week by Thursday and Friday as high pressure filters in behind the front. A more refreshing airmass will filter overhead with dew points forecast in the 50s and high temperatures in the low to mid 80s.
