Beachcast: Some Sun Saturday; Sunday Storms

By Dan Stillman

Clouds, showers and storms Saturday night and Sunday may be a bummer for those hitting the Delaware and Maryland beaches this weekend. But most of Saturday should be just fine, and if you plan to hit the shore early (Friday) or stay late (Monday), you might get yourself a nice bonus day at the beach.

Keep reading for the Beachcast details. Also, see our D.C. metro area forecast through the weekend and beyond.

The Sky: Friday and much of Saturday should be rain-free and partly to mostly sunny. Then, increasing clouds late Saturday with a shower or thunderstorm possible Saturday night, and mostly cloudy with more numerous showers and potentially strong thunderstorms on Sunday. Clouds and some showers may linger Sunday night, followed by clearing skies for Monday.

The Air: High temperatures Friday, Saturday and Monday should be right around where you'd expect them this time of year -- in the low to mid 80s, and rather humid -- with nighttime lows in the upper 60s. But clouds and rain could limit Sunday's highs to the mid to upper 70s, along with a steady breeze from the south.

The Water: Water temperatures have risen steadily over the past few weeks, now in the upper 60s to low 70s.

The Surf: I'm a meteorologist, not a surfer. But these dudes have the info you're looking for.

Your Skin: The UV Index is likely to be in the very high range on Friday and Saturday. Cloud cover should reduce the index to the moderate range for Sunday, before clearing skies allow the index to rebound upward again for Monday, which will once again mean a quick burn without proper protection.
