Today's Forecast

Taste of summer comes screeching to a halt…

Sunday proved to be the final in a series of very hot days across the metro with 91º recorded at Reagan National. Big readings were observed for a second day at BWI Marshall and Dulles setting another record at the latter. A powerful approaching cold front will bring us some much-needed rain. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a few drops possible in the morning, but the heaviest of the action will hold off until midday and beyond! We could see up to an inch of rain and maybe even a couple of strong storms with some gusty winds. There is a slight risk for severe weather, especially NE of DC where the Storm Prediction Center has highlighted an enhanced risk. Cooler and drier weather spills in for Tuesday with lots of sunshine and more typical readings in the low to middle 70s. The left over moisture from once Tropical Storm Karen will meander up the east coast and could be close enough to send some moisture out way later in the week. Have a great day!
