Forecast: Umbrella-Free for One More Day
Heat, humidity and storm chances return tomorrow
Be honest now. How many of you grabbed your umbrella by reflex this morning? It's nothing to be ashamed of after what seems like an endless series of summer storm chances, most of which have panned out, and then some. But for the second straight day, storms chances are slim to none. Come tomorrow, however, it's back to the routine, with storm chances through the weekend. That's right -- grab the umbrella, and plan to use it.
Mostly sunny. Upper 80s. No rain, lots of sun, not too humid. Need I say more? Well, if you really need additional details, highs will make the upper 80s with light winds. Tonight, partly cloudy with lows in the low 70s downtown, mid-to-upper 60s in the burbs.
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend, and see NatCast for this evening's weather at Nationals Park.
Hot and humid. Partly sunny. Isolated p.m. storms. Low to mid 90s. Some sun but also some clouds mixing in. The real story, though, is the jump in temperatures with highs in the low 90s, and in humidity with dew points back into the mid 60s. Can't rule out a few isolated thunderstorms in the late afternoon or evening.
Overnight, partly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s downtown, near 70 in the burbs.
The forecast for Friday? Pretty much like Thursday -- partly sunny and humid with highs in the low to mid 90s and a few isolated storms possible in the late afternoon or evening. Then, mild Friday night with lows only dropping to the mid 70s in town, near 70 in the burbs. Confidence: Medium-High
Surpise, surprise ... another Saturday with storm potential. We'll do the whole partly sunny and humid thing over again -- actually, very humid -- with highs in the low to mid 90s and a chance of afternoon/evening scattered storms developing, some of which could be strong to severe. Confidence: Medium
More storms seem likely on Sunday as a cold front comes through, though not so sure on the timing yet. Highs should be somewhere in the upper 80s to low 90s. Confidence: Medium
