FORECAST IN DETAIL
Unlike last weekend, there's no heat wave coming, but it will be plenty warm. The mercury will rise well into the 80s to perhaps 90 both weekend days. Humidity will be noticeable but not obscene. An emerging weather story is the lack of rain. After the 5th driest July on record, August rainfall is just half of average and no rain is likely through early next week.
Today (Saturday): Pretty typical Washington August weather to kickoff the weekend. High pressure will give us plenty of sunshine, helping temperatures into the upper 80s. It will be somewhat humid, but a little less sticky than the preceding 5-7 days. Don't expect much of a breeze at all. Confidence: High
Tonight: Just a few clouds overnight. With light winds, the suburbs will drop into the mid-to-upper 60s overnight. Downtown locations will bottom out around 70. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast for tomorrow and into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Tomorrow will be pretty similar to today. Maybe it's a degree or two warmer...so more of us may hit 90. Humidity will remain moderate to high with light winds from the east at around 5 mph. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy and mild overnight. Lows will range from the mid-to-upper 60s in the cooler suburbs to near 70 downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Monday and Tuesday won't be much different than the weekend, though perhaps a few degrees warmer. Both days should feature partly to mostly sunny skies with highs into the low 90s. Overnight Monday, it will be warm and muggy with lows from the upper 60s to the low 70s. No rain is likely although a thunderstorm can't totally be ruled out by late Tuesday. Confidence: Medium-High
