Is a break on the way with this heat and humidity?
And here we go again! A cold front will gradually move through the listening area today. This will keep the threat of a few showers and thunderstorms in the forecast through this afternoon and early evening hours. Once again, a few of these storms could be strong to severe. Once we lose daylight, any storms left will dissipate, leaving us with a muggy night and some patchy fog. Lows will be in the low 70s in town with 60s in suburbs. This cold front will then set up shop across the Mid-Atlantic Saturday and into the weekend, keeping the weather pattern rather stagnant for the next several days featuring a 1. southwesterly breeze 2. warmth 3. humidity and 4. a chance of t-storms each afternoon. At this point, it appears that Sunday will provide a better chance of widely spread showers and storms as an area of low pressure develops along the southern end of the front and sends additional moisture northward into the Mid-Atlantic. Temperatures will generally be around or just above average through the weekend with highs in the mid to upper 80s and continued humid conditions. The low pressure center will head northeastward Monday and through the Mid-Atlantic, providing a better chance of showers and thunderstorms through early next week. Unfortunately, the rest of the work week won’t offer much of a change in the weather pattern—(typical summertime set up) as we will see partly sunny skies and pop-up afternoon and evening thunderstorms each day, including 4th of July—per usual in the DC area!
