Forecast: Here comes the heat
Temperatures close in on 100 this week
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Well, we knew summer wouldn't let us get away with picture perfect days in the low-to-mid 80s all season long. But it's a shame that our reality check has to come on a day where many of us will be outdoors for a good portion of it. While it might be a scorcher temperature-wise, humidity should still be low enough that it won't be brutal. As we continue into the week, temperatures close in on a return to 100, and higher humidity levels begin to make themselves known once again.
Today (Independence Day): Hot, to be sure. But with relatively low humidity levels and little/no chance of rain, we can't really ask for a much better July 4th. I'm sure most will be celebrating outside this afternoon so bring along the sunscreen and cold water. Bright, sunny skies rule overhead and our afternoon highs climb into the 90s. There won't be much of a breeze to speak of, so hopefully you've got a pool nearby. Confidence: High
Tonight: During the overnight, there won't be the same crispness to the air as in recent nights. Still -- it won't really be muggy either, with lows in the 60s in the cooler suburbs to the low 70s downtown. Winds remain light, primarily from the southwest. Confidence: High
Will the heat break anytime soon? Keep reading for the forecast through midweek....
Tomorrow (Monday): If you're planning on using your day off to get any chores done around the house, let me urge you to get them done early. Blistering heat returns to the mid-Atlantic region, with highs here in the upper 90s under mostly sunny skies. Winds will be light, from a westerly direction, and humidity still shouldn't be terribly high. Confidence: High
Tomorrow Night: Skies will be mostly clear but lows only dip from near 70 in the cooler suburbs to the mid-to-upper 70s downtown as humidity levels slowly climb. Confidence: Medium-High
As we all head back to work on Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll get no relief. We'll see mostly sunny skies with some spotty afternoon clouds popping up and highs in the upper 90s to near 100. Humidity levels won't be too oppressive, though it will be noticeable, especially at night, with lows only dropping into the 70s. Confidence: Medium-High
