The calendar may be nearing the end of August, but it is still summer and will feel like it for the rest of the week.

Partly Cloudy, Showers Possible (mainly north)
Lows: 67°-72°
Wind: Southwest 5-10 mph

Partly Sunny, T-Storms (30%)
Highs: near 90°
Wind: West 5-10 mph
Thunderstorms Likely (60%)
Highs: upper 80s
Wind: Northwest 5-10 mph

Skies will stay partly cloudy during the overnight hours as temperatures fall to the upper 60s and lower 70s. Shower and thunderstorm chances will be limited on Tuesday with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will eventually rebound to near 90 degrees. Heat index values may make it feel a bit hotter.

A cold front will bring unsettled weather to the mid-Atlantic late Wednesday. Ahead of the front, temperatures will be in the upper 80s. Dew point values will fall Thursday making it feel a bit more comfortable, but highs for the rest of the week will remain above average for this time of year.
