Forecast: Continued Humid, Storms Overnight

By Brian Jackson

By Brian Jackson

Most of us will be happy with the way this weekend turned out. We'll have a generally pleasant, albeit warm day to finish out the weekend, and local agriculture will receive a decent shot of moisture overnight with a cold front bringing showers and storms. Chances of rain stay with us early Monday before we dry out under clear skies and near normal temperatures through mid-week.

TODAY(SUNDAY)

Hot and humid. Chance of a late day thunderstorm. 88-92. We'll see more typical summertime heat and humidity through today with temperatures climbing to near 90. Clouds will be on the increase during the late afternoon as a cold front approaches the area. This front could ignite some storms during the late afternoon hours but most places should stay dry until the evening hours. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 mph.

Overnight, the clouds roll in along with the rain and thunderstorms. The bulk of the activity should arrive in the metro area in the late evening to early morning hours. The air will remain sticky ahead of the front with lows in the mid 70s. Winds will be light out of the south before turning northwesterly following the frontal passage.

Keep reading for the forecast through the middle of the week. See NatCast for the outlook for this afternoon's game.

TOMORROW (MONDAY)

Chance for early showers/storms, 83-87. The cold front will take its sweet time exiting our area so I'll keep the possibility (30%) of a shower or thunderstorm through the early afternoon hours for Monday, diminishing through the day. Otherwise we'll see plenty of clouds and temperatures remaining in the low-to-mid 80s.

Skies will begin to clear out in the evening Monday night as drier and relatively cooler air moves in. Expect a very pleasant evening with lows overnight dropping down to around 65 in the city and near 60 in the suburbs.

A LOOK AHEAD

Our area will be high and dry for most of this week as a ridge of high pressure stays put over the Mid-atlantic. Tuesday will reflect this and be sunny and quite pleasant with highs only reaching the mid-80s. Confidence: Medium-High

On Wednesday, the heat and humidity begins its inevitable return. We'll remain under clear skies and temperatures will warm into the lower 90s.Confidence: Medium-High
