Forecast: Friday Storms Before a Nice Weekend
Today will be the least desirable day of the next three. But once we get past any showers or storms this afternoon and evening, the weekend should be partly to mostly sunny and not humid, with pretty much no chance of rain. Looking to the start of next week, August's heat and humidity will likely return -- but not quite at full force.
Partly sunny. P.M. storms. Mid 80s. Like yesterday, humidity will be more noticeable than earlier in the week, and yes scattered showers and storms could very well pop up during the afternoon and evening -- 50% chance your particular location gets rained on. However, it will neither be a washout of a day nor an oppressively muggy one. Morning fog and clouds will dissipate to reveal partly sunny skies, before clouding up again in the afternoon.
A chance of showers and storms may still plague us after dinner, especially along and east of I-95. Precipitation peters out by around midnight with mostly cloudy skies lingering toward dawn. As overnight lows dip to the mid 60s in most places, a light breeze from the north will slowly dry us out.
Partly to mostly sunny. Mid 80s. Some cloud cover tries to hang in early Saturday. But for the most part I think we're in for a partly to mostly sunny day with low humidity -- a welcome treat after the dank weather of late Friday. Light winds from the north of 5-10 mph will make it feel great, pushing moisture and clouds out of the region.
Mostly clear and rather refreshing into the evening and overnight hours. Lows near 60 for those of you outside the D.C. heat island. Downtown will fall to the mid 60s. And those pleasant, light northwesterly winds will continue.
Quite nice. Upper 80s. The humidity stays low again, but this time a little more heat may fill the afternoon. The sun will beat down on most of us, from a mostly cloud-free sky, warming temperatures to the upper 80s. And virtually no chance of a shower or storm!
Fair skies & calm conditions overnight. Lows should be in the upper 60s to near 70 downtown, and as cool as the lower 60s in places like Frederick and Ashburn.
A LOOK AHEAD
Monday should be rain-free with sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90. Still not much in the way of humidity to report. How long can this goodness last? Confidence: Medium
On Tuesday, humidity is likely to be higher, and a chance of showers or thunderstorms may return after taking a few days off (as of now, only looks like a 30% chance, but that could change in either direction between now and then). Highs likely in the upper 80s or low 90s. Confidence: Medium
