Forecast: Typical D.C. Summer Weather Returns
Thunderstorm chances for the 4th and weekend.
Did you really think it would last? A more southerly flow will put an end to our brief respite from heat and humidity. In its place over the next several days will be more typical D.C. summer weather: temperatures ranging from warm to hot, rather humid and chances of thunderstorms every day except today. All this just in time for the holiday weekend.
Partly sunny & hot. Low 90s. Thanks to a push of air from the south, temperatures, and to a lesser degree humidity, will be higher than yesterday. But still not a bad day, albeit quite warm, for first round play at the AT&T National. Expect a blend of clouds and sun with afternoon highs in the low 90s; I wouldn't be surprised if a few locations near or hit 95.
Tonight will be partly cloudy and mild with a slight chance of a stray shower, especially north and west. Overnight lows will drop to 70-75.
Mostly cloudy, warm & humid. Near 90. If you've lived in D.C. for a while, conditions on this 4th of July should be fairly familiar. Plan on more clouds than sun and moderately high humidity with afternoon highs in the upper 80s to near 90. Scattered thunderstorms will likely develop during the late afternoon and may persist in some spots through the evening. Chances that you'll see a storm where you are? About 40%. For more details, see our special July 4th forecast.
Plan on scattered thunderstorms and truly muggy conditions overnight with lows in the mid 70s.
A stalled cold front will make for mostly cloudy and humid conditions on both Saturday and Sunday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms likely both days. Warm, not hot, afternoon highs should be in the mid 80s with overnight lows from the upper 60s to the low 70s. Confidence: Medium
Monday appears to offer more of the same, with slightly more sunshine (partly sunny), slightly warmer temperatures (upper 80s), and a continued but slightly lower chance of showers and thunderstorms. Confidence: Medium
