FORECAST IN DETAIL
These seasonable, average high temperatures in the upper 80s the next couple days? They will feel downright awesome. I am extremely excited, I bet you are too. We have slowly increasing chances of showers on Saturday evening into Sunday evening, and probably Monday too. By the middle of next week, we could be back into our hot regime. So enjoy it while you can!
Today (Friday): Just splendid & stellar! Upper 80s for afternoon high temperatures will likely feel refreshing to our 100-degree-hardened bodies. Boy have we acclimated. Light north winds behind last evening's cold front will continue to feed in dryer air. Enjoy this lower humidity! But also note UV will be high today underneath a clear blue sky. Lather on that sunscreen or sunblock before enjoying direct, midday sunlight! Confidence: High
Tonight: Lows could drop into the low-to-mid-60s downtown! A few clouds may insulate the normally warmer downtown areas, keeping us in the mid-to-upper 60s. But outside the Beltway will bottom near 60! Who will open their windows? I will consider it! Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into next week. The heat's gotta return, right?
Tomorrow (Saturday): Warm again but with continued lower levels of humidity. Highs should again top off in the upper 80s. Winds will stay light, but start blowing from the south. There is a small chance (about a 20%) of an afternoon shower or thundershower due to a modest return of moisture. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Showers & storms may become more numerous. About a 40% chance you see your garden watered. Low temeratures will be a little higher, in the mid-to-upper 60s for most of us. This is because of the cloud cover and light southerly breezes ushering in just a bit more humidity & moisture into the air. Confidence: Medium
Sunday: Partly sunny skies in the morning could turn mostly cloudy in the afternoon as showers/storms begin to pop. Highs should stop their climb around the low-to-mid 80s thanks to this cloud cover. The humidity increases, just keep that in mind--you won't be as comfortable. The chance of showers and thunderstorms is 50-60%. Confidence: Medium
Partly to mostly cloudy Sunday night with a continued (50%) chance of a shower or thundershower. Temperatures remain warm, near 70 downtown, upper 60s elsewhere. Confidence: Low-Medium
Monday and Tuesday may start a trend toward warmer more muggy weather. Mid-80s on Monday & then around 90 on Tuesday. There is a decent 30% chance of a shower or storm each day--so yes, remember our pattern of summer storms? It could very well return with the increasing heat next week! Confidence: Low-Medium
