Forecast: September-like Splendor
Seldom will we experience a finer day in early August than today. Conditions will be more characteristic of early September. The air will be delightfully warm and dry and we'll enjoy a pleasant breeze. Tomorrow's weather won't be of today's caliber due to possible thunderstorms in the afternoon. However, nice weather will resume Monday and may extend well into next week.
Partly to mostly sunny. 83-86. The air will be so dry this afternoon (dew point near 50) that it will actually feel several degrees cooler than the forecast highs in the mid 80s. And a breeze from the northwest at 5-10 mph will provide additional refreshment.
Overnight, skies will clear, with lows near 60 in the cooler suburbs and the mid-to-upper 60s downtown.
Partly sunny, chance of t'storms. Mid 80s. A wave in the atmosphere will ripple through tomorrow afternoon, setting off scattered showers and thunderstorms. In the immediate metro area, the likelihood of storms is about 30%, but that increases to 40% in the northern suburbs. Despite the possibility of storms, humidity levels will remain in check.
Overnight, a cool front will pass by and should dry us out. Lows will fall into the upper 60s in the city to the low 60s in the suburbs.
Low humidity and comfortably warm temperatures continue Monday with highs in the mid 80s. A stray shower or thunderstorm can't be ruled out, especially north of the District. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday looks to be pretty spectacular with mostly sunny skies, low humidity and highs in the low-to-mid 80s.Confidence: Medium-High
