We are slowly getting warmer this week, but at the same time our showers will be more widespread. A cold front is working its way toward us and will trigger thundershowers this afternoon.

This Afternoon

They may be some heavy downpours both today and tomorrow afternoon. The front will stall near D.C. this weekend, but chances of rain will have diminished. Only a 30% chance Saturday and Sunday with more sunshine and seasonable temperatures in the upper 80s. Speaking of seasonable... we have now started the downward slide for average temperatures. The average high at Reagan National is down a notch to 87 degrees. We end August with an average high of 84.
