Southerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front to our west will pump warm air into our region on Tuesday. Expect a mix of clouds and sunshine with the chance of evening showers and thunderstorms and highs in the lower 80s. The Storm Prediction Center has placed DC and points west under a slight risk for severe storms with damaging winds and hail being the primary threats.

Wednesday morning will start off wet with lingering showers, but expect these to end by the afternoon. Clouds should begin to break up by late afternoon. It will be a cooler day with highs in the lower 60s.

Sunshine returns for the day on Thursday with a breeze out of the north and west. Highs will bump up into the upper 60s so it will be a pleasant day. A weak and fast moving system may bring more clouds on Friday with the chance for a few light showers and high temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.
