Forecast: Another Cooler Than Average Week
Nice Monday to kick things off...
Today: Mostly sunny. 83-86. | Tonight: Mostly clear. 60-66. | Tomorrow: Partly sunny, p.m. shower? 83-86. | A Look Ahead
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Customary summertime heat and humidity continues to elude the metro region, but I'm hearing few complaints. The week begins with a couple of very nice days before cold fronts bring back periodic chances of showers and storms primarily late Tuesday, late Wednesday into Thursday, and late Saturday into Sunday. These fronts will keep the hot, sticky air to our south and west, and it now looks as though we'll make it through the first 13 days of July without a 90-degree day (after only logging 2 during June).
Today (Monday): After yesterday's cool and cloudy day in the 70s, we're rewarded with some sunshine. That will help boost high temperatures into the mid-80s. A light wind from the north will refresh and keep the humidity relatively low with dew points in the upper 50s. Confidence: High
Tonight: Mostly clear and pleasant. Lows will dip to around 60 in the cooler suburbs, with mid-60s downtown. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend....
Tomorrow (Tuesday): For much of the day, we'll have a good deal of sunshine. But during the afternoon, we'll start to see some high clouds feed in as a cold front to the northwest pushes southeastward. Highs will reach the mid-80s, with a light wind from the west. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible (20% chance) during the evening (particularly north of D.C.). Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy, with lows 59-65 (suburbs-city) Confidence: Medium-High
Most of Wednesday will be partly sunny and pleasant with highs 82-86. However, late in the afternoon or during the evening, another cold front could (30% chance) set off a few showers and thundershowers. Any shower activity should then dissipate later at night, with lows 60-65 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
Wednesday night's cold front may stall in our vicinity Thursday, increasing cloud cover and the chances for showers and thunderstorms (30% chance) during the day and into the evening. Highs may only be in the 70s to near 80. Some rain may linger into Thursday night, with lows in the 60s. Confidence: Medium
Weak high pressure probably builds back into the region for Friday. So sunshine is a good bet, along with warm temperatures and comfortable humidity. Highs will likely be in the low-to-mid 80s. Mostly clear and pleasant Friday night, with lows 59-64 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium
Saturday looks mainly nice, with partly sunny skies and temperatures reaching for the mid-80s. Towards evening and overnight, another cold front heads for the region, giving us another shot at showers and thunderstorms, with temperatures dropping towards the 60s. Confidence: Medium
Showers may linger into part of Sunday, before gradual clearing commences. Highs will probably again be in the low-to-mid 80s. Confidence: Low-Medium
