Rain showers scattered around the DC area today, with the heavier precipitation staying further east. This due to a low pressure system which is occupying Eastern Virginia. As all eyes are on Isaac and Florida, we won’t have to worry about it here until the remnants reach us at week’s end; but will any other showers affect us? Read for the full forecast!
Tomorrow will wind up looking similar today, with temperatures a little higher around the mid-80s in the city. With the low pressure system still to our south, scattered showers and thunderstorms will affect most of the DC area throughout the day. Clouds will otherwise remain over the area.
As the low moves away from the area Monday, the area will remain dry. However, cloud cover will persist for most of the day with the majority of the area remaining under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will continue to rise ahead of another cold front which will reach us on Tuesday. Highs on Tuesday will reach into the upper-80s ahead of the front, although depending on the speed at which the front reaches us, they could be lower, especially in western counties. The front will also bring showers and thunderstorms to most of the area.
Behind the front, high pressure will build ahead of what remains of Isaac, which should be working its way up the Mississippi Valley; this should lead to mostly clear skies and rising temperatures Wednesday through Friday. The exact movement of Isaac’s remnants late this week is still uncertain, but it is safe to say we should see some showers and thunderstorms from it on Friday/Saturday.
