Forecast: Heat and Humidity Here to Stay
A few showers today; weekend mostly rain-free
If you're awaiting significant relief from the current heat and humidity, you're going to have to be quite patient. It's probable that temperatures will be warmer than normal over the next week, along with relatively high humidity levels to boot. The good news is that, outside the possibility of some scattered thunderstorms Saturday, the weekend looks predominately dry -- albeit hot and humid.
Partly sunny; showers/t-storm? Low 90s. Plan on a blend of clouds and sun today, the last day of July, along with continued high humidity levels. Afternoon highs will reach the low 90s in most places. A few showers or thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.
Tonight will be partly to mostly cloudy and muggy with a slight chance of an isolated shower in spots. Lows will range from the low to mid 70s.
Keep reading for the forecast through the beginning of next week, and see NatCast for tonight's game at Nationals Park.
Mostly sunny. Low 90s. The first day of August (Friday) will feature mostly sunny skies and humidity levels just a touch lower, as high pressure builds in. Afternoon highs will again be in the low 90s, with little to no chance of rain.
If you're planning outdoor activities on Saturday, you can expect a blend of clouds and sun with relatively high humidity levels and afternoon highs within a degree or two of 90. Some scattered thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon, but no sure thing. Saturday night will feature partly cloudy skies with lows from 70-75. Confidence: Medium
On Sunday, look for partly to mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the low 90s. The area should once again remain primarily dry (at least in terms of drops of rain falling from the sky as opposed to the amount of moisture in the air). Saturday night will feature partly cloudy skies and lows once again from 70-75. Confidence: Medium-High
The outlook for Monday calls for a continuation of partly to mostly sunny skies, hot and humid afternoon highs in the low 90s and rather muggy overnight lows in the low to mid 70s. Confidence: Medium
