Forecast Graphic for 8/13/12

Another nice day for the DC area, with highs reaching into the upper-80s and low humidity, although with a few more clouds than some may have liked.  The number of pool days is dwindling fast, so savoring days like these, even if not perfect, is key!  If you’re looking for more outdoor time, we’ve got some coming up this week.  Read on for the best days!

Tomorrow will definitely not be the best day this week.  There will be a chance of isolated showers in the early morning hours, leading into mostly cloudy skies.  Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop over the area in the afternoon ahead of a weak frontal system that will move through the area overnight Tuesday/Wednesday.

Other than some leftover showers in the morning, Wednesday should remain dry, although cloud cover will persist throughout much of the day. Temperatures will dip into the mid-80s

Thursday is shaping up to be the best day during the week to go outside, with high pressure dominating the area again.  It will be a little warmer, back into the upper-80s, with more sunshine and low humidity.

Another frontal system, this time much stronger, will progress towards our area Friday, leading to showers and potentially severe thunderstorms ahead of it Friday afternoon and evening.  Showers will continue into Saturday morning.

Temperatures will drop more dramatically behind the cold front this weekend, with highs dropping into the low- to mid-80s, and lows into the mid-60s.  Sunday should bring the sun back for a nice end to the weekend.
