With morning showers long gone and abundant clearing through the region, more rounds of showers and storms appear likely this afternoon as a cold front approaches from the west. A few of these storms will become severe with damaging winds and large hail possible. North and east of D.C. also has a bit more shear, and will be the area with the highest threat for an isolated tornado. Storms will come to an end later this evening into tonight and conditions will be muggy with lows in the 60s to low 70s.

Wednesday will have a chance for more storms as the front continues to move east. Otherwise expect highs in the upper 80s under partly cloudy skies. High pressure will move overhead Thursday for a day, knocking down the humidity with highs in the upper 80s. Another cold front will bring storms chances back by Friday night into Saturday morning. It will be much cooler behind this front by the weekend with highs in the lower 80s each day.
