The extreme heat across the mid-Atlantic is about to come to and end, but not before another very warm and uncomfortable night. Lows will slowly fall into the 70s and 80s with "feels like" temperatures barley dropping below 90. Another hot and humid day Sunday, but with clouds on the increase, daytime highs will be a few degrees cooler compared to Saturday. Strong storms are expected to develop ahead of a cold front by afternoon. Some of these storms will be capable of producing gusty winds and large hail. As the front moves to the south, the atmosphere will remain unstable and strong storms are expected during the overnight hours and into early Monday morning.

Highs for the upcoming week will be in the 80s with a small chance for afternoon thunderstorms each day.
