It's hard to believe it's already September and we're celebrating the last hoorah of summer on this Labor Day Monday. It certainly feels like summer-time with high humidity and high temperatures climbing close to 90°. As a cold front slowly approaches from the west, some late day showers and thunderstorms are possible, but shouldn't be too widespread. Just keep an eye to the sky for any dark clouds that could spawn a thundershower. The cold front itself will slide through overnight and then our weather pattern will slowly change.


Tuesday, the day most of us get back into the swing of school and work, will be our transition day. Most spots will be dry tomorrow, but the cold front slowly moving offshore and isolated shower can't be ruled out (especially south and east of the District). High temperatures tomorrow will climb into the middle 80s. By Wednesday, and through the rest of the work week, temperatures will top out in the lower 80s with very comfortable humidity and plenty of sunshine.
