A warm front will continue to move northward this evening into Pennsylvania allowing for warm, moist air to push in from the south. With daytime heating, the atmosphere has become more unstable allowing for showers and thunderstorms to develop. Some storm cells will become severe with gusty winds, heavy rain and small hail.

As temperatures fall this evening, the storms will diminish. Overnight lows will fall into the 60s. Monday will be hot and a bit more humid with highs well into the 80s. Areas south of the D.C. metropolitan area may see highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Above average temperatures will remain in the forecast until Wednesday. A strong cold front arrives late Wednesday into early Thursday night bringing yet another round of potential severe weather.
