After a gorgeous Mother's Day, Mother Nature is turning up the heat and humidity to kick-start the new work week.  High pressure off the southeast coast will pump in hotter temperatures and higher humidity for Monday and Tuesday.  Similar to a summer-time weather pattern, a few showers and thunderstorm may develop in the afternoons both Monday and Tuesday.  Highs will soar into the upper 80s to low 90s south of the District.

A weak front will bring an easterly wind component Wednesday.  That will drop highs into the upper 70s.  A few showers and isolated thunderstorms will still be possible.  A slow moving cold front will trigger more widespread showers and thunderstorms Thursday through Friday mid-morning.  Temperatures will also drop by week's end into the low 70s.  Get the umbrella ready for the work week and enjoy the rest of your dry Sunday!
