An unsettled weather pattern will exist for the D.C. area this weekend, but what about the beaches?
A frontal system will make for partly sunny skies and increased storm chance for the end of the work week. For the all important weekend forecast, a few changes are on the way with one of the days appear a bit nicer than the other. Let's dive into the forecast and have a look at what to expect.
Friday, August 19
Partly Cloudy, T-Storms Possible Highs: Mid 80s
A frontal system will continue to linger over the east coast tomorrow which will bring another chance for showers and thunderstorms. Highs should reach the mid 80s under partly cloudy skies, and the best chance for storms appears to be in the afternoon and evening hours.

Partly Cloudy, Isolated Storm Possible Highs: Upper 80s
Saturday looks like it will be the nicest day of the weekend at the beaches with highs in the upper 80s under partly cloudy skies. There is a chance for a few thunderstorms but at this point we believe they will be isolated in nature. Be sure to check the forecast tomorrow for the latest update.
Sunday, August 21
Partly Cloudy, Storms Possible Late Highs: Mid 80s
Sunday isn't expected to be quite as warm with highs back in the mid 80s as southeasterly winds take over. Other than that though, the majority of the day still appears like it will be nice with partly cloudy skies overhead. Storms will be possible in the afternoon before becoming likely Sunday evening and night as a cold front moves through the region. Those storms could make for a tough ride home, so be sure to check the Doppler Radar and plan your trip accordingly.
