It was great, albeit hot, summer weather outside today, with temperatures climbing up to around 90° all around DC. While the heat may not be something we are quite used to again yet—with pools just reopening this past Memorial Day weekend—tolerable humidity helped light outdoor activity to be enjoyable. How long will this weather stay with us, will it get hotter, and what is your weekend looking like? Find out after the break!
Look forward to more of the same tomorrow, with highs potentially reaching slightly higher into the low-90s under sunny skies. Dew points should also remain in the 60s, so you shouldn’t have to worry about it being too “sticky” outside. The evening and overnight hours will differ, however, with humidity during these times drifting higher.
An isolated thunderstorm cannot be ruled out Thursday afternoon and evening, but don’t expect anything widespread. Most, if any, pop up storms should remain mainly North of DC.
The forecast does not change much going into the weekend. Temperatures will remain in the low-90s under sunny skies through and including Sunday, with lows only reaching down to around 70°.
The low pressure system and associated cold front causing severe storms throughout the midwest today will begin to pick up speed Eastward towards us throughout the week, and will finally reach us Sunday evening.
Expect showers and thunderstorms overnight Sunday, continuing into Monday.
Cooler weather, with highs down to around 80°, will follow to start next week.
