Remember the last time the high temperature was below 90 degrees? The date: July 17th when it was a measly 89 degrees. If you are looking for cooler air, you may not want to look at the extended outlook.

Overnight: Mainly Clear

Lows: 70s | Wind: Light

Monday: Morning Sunshine, PM Thunderstorms (30%)

Highs: 95°- 100° | Air Quality: Code Orange

Tuesday: Mostly to Partly Sunny

Highs: 93°- 98° | Air Quality: Code Orange

 Sky conditions will clear overnight as high pressure briefly builds over the mid-Atlantic. With hardly any wind, patchy fog may develop during the early morning hours Monday. Overnight lows will slowly fall into the 70s to lower 80s in the District.

Monday will be day 15 at 90 degrees or better. With morning sunshine, temperatures will quickly jump into the 80s. Afternoon highs will be in the 90s with 100 degree readings not out of the question. Showers and thunderstorms may develop to the north and east along the Chesapeake Bay. Some of the storms may become severe with gusty winds and heavy periods of rain.

Highs on Tuesday will be in the middle 90s with a stronger cold front on the way for Wednesday. Cloud cover and the arrival time of the front will sway projected highs slightly.
