An inverted trough has been hanging around the southeastern states this week bringing flooding rains and cooler than normal temperatures. High pressure has been centered over the D.C. area keeping us sunny and unseasonably cool, but changes are likely today through the weekend. Some moisture will make it into the D.C. area this weekend increasing clouds and returning the chance of showers.

Today will continue to be very nice with low humidity and comfortable temperatures around 80 degrees. A few clouds will begin to move back into the region through the day. Saturday will be partly sunny and a touch more humid with dewpoints approaching 60 degrees. Highs should reach the upper 70s and a few showers are possible late in the day, more than likely closer to sunset. More steady showers will be possible on Sunday as moisture makes it in the region from the south. Highs will be cooler, only reaching the mid to upper 70s under otherwise mostly cloudy skies. The best day at the beaches will also be on Saturday.
