Records were broken at Reagan National and BWI Thurgood Marshall today.

Tonight: Mostly Clear & Muggy

Lows: 70s | Wind: SW 5 m.p.h.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny, Hot & Humid, Iso. T-Storm

Highs: Upper 90s | Wind: SW 5-10 m.p.h.

Friday: Partly Sunny, Scattered T-Storms

Highs: Low to Mid 90s | Wind: W 5-10 m.p.h.

Records were broken today at Reagan National (99°) and at BWI Thurgood Marshall (99°) which proved to be the hottest day of the year so far. Temperatures will gradually fall from the 90s back into the 80s this evening and 70s overnight under mostly clear skies.

Thursday will be much like today, with another Heat Advisory from Noon to 8pm as well as Code Orange Air Quality. Temperatures should reach the upper 90s and a few records may be broken once again. There is also the chance for a few thunderstorms in the late afternoon and evening as a frontal boundary approaches from the west.

That same front will begin to SLIGHTLY cool the region a day at a time with highs only expected to reach the low to mid 90s on Friday, and thankfully back into the 80s for the weekend. Friday should be partly sunny with the chance for a few thunderstorms. At this point in time we think Saturday will have a better chance for showers and storms and the chance will remain through the end of the weekend on Sunday.
