We are entering day seven of the high heat and today we may get a few moments of relief as scattered thundershowers are likely to pop up through the day.
Otherwise, expect a mix of clouds and sun and highs in the upper 90s. We are hopeful that most storms will wrap up around sunset (8:37 p.m.), which is good news because the fireworks on the National Mall are scheduled for 9:11 p.m.
Just remember to have a safety plan and know where to get to shelter if you hear thunder when outdoors!
The rest of the week and into the weekend will be all about the extreme heat and humidity. We finally may get some relief by next week. Stay cool and have a safe and happy 4th!
