Forecast: Sunny Sunday, Stormy Monday
By Brian Jackson
Almost perfect late spring weather greets us today. Warm, sunny skies and less humid air prevail for the second half of the weekend. Heat and humidity re-enter the picture on Monday along with the chance for thunderstorms before it clears out again and things really cool off on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mostly sunny, 83-88. High pressure will build in behind the front that passed through last night providing mostly sunny conditions. Some of you near the Chesapeake Bay may see a some clouds early in the a.m. but it should clear out by noon. Humidity levels will drop leaving us with a very pleasant day. Highs will max out in the mid to upper 80s. Winds will be from the northwest at around 10 mph.
This evening presents a fine way to end the weekend. We'll have clear skies and mild temperatures to enjoy. Lows will drop into the mid 60s. Winds will become from the west southwest at 5 mph.
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week.
Warm and humid. Chance of T'storms. Near 90. It's a brief relapse to warm and sticky as heat and moisture return ahead of a strong cold front. Southwest winds tap the humidity and highs will approach 90 again in most areas. Skies will turn mostly cloudy during the afternoon and scattered thunderstorms will likely develop ahead of the cold front. Some storms could be strong to severe.
Overnight, the chance (40%) for thunderstorms continues as the front itself pushes through. Clouds will then decrease behind the front west to east and with skies becoming mostly clear by early morning. Lows will fall to the low to mid 60s.
A LOOK AHEAD
Tuesday brings a glorious respite from the recent heat and humidity. Skies will become mostly sunny with much cooler and drier conditions as winds blow in from the northwest. Below normal temperatures move in to save all of our air conditioning bills. Highs will top out around 80 degrees. Confidence: Medium-High
Wednesday will be a mostly fine day. Expect partly sunny skies and mild temperatures, with highs again around 80 degrees. It's not out of the question a shower or thunderstorm could develop in the afternoon as a little wave in the atmosphere ripples through the region. Confidence: Medium-High
