100 degree temperatures are nowhere to be found in the D.C. area this week.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Patchy Fog

Lows: 70s | Wind: Light

Tuesday: Partly Sunny, Stray Storm

Highs: Mid 80s | Wind: SE 4-8 m.p.h.

Wednesday: Partly Sunny and Warm

Highs: Mid 80s | Wind: Variable

The cold that passed through the area yesterday afternoon and broke the Heat Wave has become stationary south of the Washington area. Because we are so close to this boundary, the weather will continue to be rather unsettled for the next several days. While the threat of severe weather has also pushed southward with the front, our proximity to it will keep skies rather cloudy with low-end chances for isolated showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will remain below average as the stationary from is preventing the obscene heat and humidity from moving northward. I think we’ll see a bit more sunshine by weeks end but will also see a slight increase in the daily possibilities of showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures could return to the 90 degree mark by Sunday.
