Forecast: Make Way for a Magnificent Monday
What a day to kick off the week: sunshine, low humidity and a divine breeze. Take a long lunch break for restaurant week and dine alfresco. Humidity will gradually increase this week, but should fall short of muggy. Storminess should be confined to Wednesday and perhaps Sunday.
Partly to mostly sunny. Delightful. 80-84. Invigorating, cool, crisp air will greet you when you head out this morning. Many locations will start the day with temperatures in the 50s. By afternoon, the summer sun will lift temperatures towards 80. Dry, refreshing winds will blow from the northwest at 10-15 mph. Clouds will increase somewhat in the afternoon, and an isolated, short-lived shower is possible (20% chance) mainly north of the District before the sun sets.
Skies clear after dark and temperatures will drop quickly. Lows will reach the mid 50s in the cooler suburbs to the low 60s downtown.
Keep reading for the forecast through the week.
Warm and dry. Mid-, maybe upper 80s. Tomorrow will be just like today, but likely three to five degrees warmer with reduced afternoon cloudiness and close to zero chance of rain. Enjoy low humidity, a light northwest breeze and seasonably warm temperatures.
Clear skies overnight with lows bottoming out in the mid-to-upper 60s in town to near 60 in the cooler suburbs.
A weak cold front could trigger a few thunderstorms Wednesday late in the day, otherwise expect partly sunny skies with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. Humidity will be higher than the last two days but bearable. Confidence: Medium-High
Thursday through Saturday should be pleasantly uneventful weather-wise. Weak high pressure will be positioned to the north and northwest. That will result in breezes from the north that will hold humidity levels in the low-to-moderate range. Afternoon temperatures will likely be in the mid-to-upper 80s each day with lots of sunshine and low rain chances. Confidence: Medium-High
By Sunday, winds from the south may arrive as a frontal system develops in the Midwest. Humidity levels should increase, and afternoon and evening thunderstorms are a possibility. High temperatures should reach the upper 80s. Confidence: Medium
