It's been hotter than hades here in the D.C. area, but what about the beaches this weekend?
It's that time again and it couldn't have gotten here any faster. With temperatures hanging around the 100 degree mark in town, what will the forecast be for the beaches this weekend? Well I have the answers for you right here, as always, every Thursday and Friday. Just think, as it sits at 97 degrees this afternoon in the D.C. area, it is currently 79 at the beaches. Wouldn't that be nice? Here's the forecast for Friday and the weekend.
Mostly Sunny, HOT and Humid
Highs: Mid to upper 90s
Friday will finally bring warmer temperatures to the beaches as winds swing around to the southwest. Highs should reach the mid to upper 90s under mostly sunny skies. Heat index values will be as high as 110 degrees. This is one of those days you'll want to hit the water early and often. Be sure to wear shoes or sandals on the beach as a few people reported 1st and 2nd degree burns on their feet last weekend.
Mostly Sunny, Hot & Humid
Highs: Mid 90s
Temperatures will begin to fall just a bit as the core of the warmest air sinks to the south. Highs should top out in the mid 90s under mostly sunny skies. Heat index values will still range above 105 degrees.
Partly Cloudy, PM T-Storms Possible
Highs: Around 90
Sunday will finally bring a bit of a change with highs back around the 90 degree mark. There will be a chance for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms, so this would be a day where it may not be a bad thing to head out earlier rather than later.
