Welcome to the first day of the month of July but we are stuck with the wet weather pattern of June. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 2 am tomorrow morning.

Warm and humid with showers and thunderstorms 
Temperatures: middle to upper 80s
Wind: SW 5 - 10 mph
Isolated showers and storms. Warm and muggy 
Temperatures: upper 60s to middle 70s 
Wind: SW 6 - 12 mph
Very warm and muggy with more showers and storms 
Temperatures: middle to upper 80s
Wind: SW 5 - 10 mph

Since January 1st, 44.25 inches of precipatation has been measured at Reagan National Airport. Amazingly, 44% of that total fell during the month of June and July is beginning with the same, general weather pattern in place.  A steady flow warm and humid air from the Gulf of Mexico remains entrenched across the region because the controlling weather systems responsible are, pretty much, locked in place. So get ready for more hazy, hot and humid weather with showers and thunderstorms and the ever present threat of localized flooding. Daily high temperatures will range through the middle to upper 80s all week long. Rainfall probabilities will diminish a bit later in the week, but chances of daily showers and storms will remain through at least Friday.

As the Fourth of July and its extended weekend approach, we will keep a sharp eye on how the weather may affect the beaches, the mountains and of course, your own back yard. Right now, it appears 90 temperatures will be common for the weekend.
